    Afridi and 7 Other fellow Players Fined A$300 for breaching curfew regulations

    SYDNEY: Eight Pakistan players, including maverick former captain Shahid Afridi, have been fined for breaching a team curfew ahead of their crucial World Cup game against India, sources said on Thursday.

    They have also been warned that a repeat offence will see them kicked out of the tournament which starts on Saturday.

    “Eight of the Pakistan players, which also included former captain Shahid Afridi and opener Ahmed Shehzad, were fined 300 Australian dollars (US $230) after they came late to their Sydney hotel on Sunday,” sources in the Pakistan team said on condition of anonymity.

    The team management, headed by manager Naveed Cheema, a former military man, claimed the players arrived 45 minutes late after a night out.

    “These players went with their friends for dinner but came back late,” said a team source. The players are understood to have apologised and have promised not to repeat the offence.

    Team management have told the players that if such a breach was repeated they will be sent home on the first available flight.

    Pakistan are placed in Group B of the 14-team World Cup which starts in New Zealand and Australia from Saturday.

    Pakistan play their first group game against arch-rivals and title-holders India in Adelaide on Sunday. Pakistani players have a history of off-field discipline problems.

    Being late by half an hour is really no big deal. They have been fined and that should be the end of that.

    A second offense carries a much more severe penalty. A plane ticket back home.

    Be careful guys.

    Half an hour late? Big deal. Should have been waivered.

    Apparently Mr. Cheema thinks these are soldiers --- terrible for motivation and morale, let them blow off steam, train them hard, but get off their backs, what next? not enough Rakkas? Just get your finger out of them and motivate them positively -- They went drinking? great this opportunity should have been afforded much before the game day, instead they should have had team psychiatrist (which they do not have) work on their motivation, and get them relaxed to do what they know how to do on game day.
