The Pakistan Cricket Board has asked its governing council members not to make irresponsible statements in the wake of Muhammad Ali Shah's outburst against the umpires after the Champions Trophy.

Shah, who is a member of the PCB governing council, had alleged that India had influenced umpires to make decision against Pakistan.

Shah's statement was today discussed in the governing council meeting where PCB chairman Ejaz Butt told members that there is a proper way to raise issues and any of the officials should not say anything which amounts to violation of the ICC code of conduct.

A PCB official said that the matter related to Shah's statement was now closed now.

"The issue is over now all members have been told that they have to adhere strictly to the ICC code of conduct that the ICC has for its member Boards," the official said.

Source said Butt told Shah to be careful in future as Pakistan was a member of the ICC community and could not afford to offend them with irresponsible statements.

The ICC had prodded the PCB to take action against Shah.

Shah will retire as a member of the governing council next month as his term expires.

Butt told all the members not to make irresponsible statements and that there was a process through which the PCB could pursue the matters with the ICC.
