“Imam was remorseful and has apologised for what all has happened. But we have told him in clear terms that although this is his personal and private matter, we expect our players to adhere to the highest standards of ethics and discipline,” PCB MD Wasim Khan said on Monday.

Wasim said the board had viewed the matter seriously and spoken to Imam about it.

“We don’t like to comment on personal affairs of a player but we expect that our centrally contracted players will also show more responsibility being ambassadors of Pakistan cricket and Pakistan. Hopefully we will not see such incidents again,” he said.
