PCB CEO had a conversation with Hafeez and made it clear to him that the board was not happy with his actions.
“I spoke to Hafeez today and I made it clear to him our disappointment at the way he had handled this entire affair. As an individual, he has a right to take a private test but he should have spoken to us first because he created a problem for us,” PCB CEO Khan told the Cricket Baaz YouTube channel on Wednesday.
PCB CEO also said that actions may be taken against him for his breach.
“This is not the first time that Hafeez has breached our rules in the media. He doesn’t have a central contract but once he was selected for the Pakistan team he has to abide by the rules and regulations for all players especially pertaining to the use of social media. We are still looking at the matter because it has caused us a lot of problems,” Khan said.
Meanwhile, 10 players and one support staff who tested positive will be tested at their homes on 26th.
