Pakistan Eight Players Fined For Curfew Breach

Eight Pakistan players, including the captain Shahid Afridi, were reportedly fined for breaching the team curfew in the days leading up to their Group B match against India in Adelaide.

The incident happened in Sydney, where the Pakistan team is based, approximately a week ago. The team management claimed the players were late by 45 minutes while returning from dinner with friends.

The eight players were slapped with a fine of 300 AUD each, AFP reported. Though the team spokesman declined to comment on the incident, the players were reportedly warned that a repeat offence could be the end of tournament for them.

Pakistan have won their two warm-up games – against Bangladesh and England – since. They are scheduled to play India on February 15, in Adelaide. They have lost their previous five World Cup matches against them.
