Shahzad has been given an ultimatum to either move back to Afghanistan in a month's time or lose his central contract. This step comes forward after it was found that Shahzad played in a local Pakistani tournament in <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/peshawar" target="_blank">Peshawar</a>. It is the city in which he spent much of his early life in a refugee camp. <p></p> <p></p>But <strong>ACB have laid down some strict rules in place for foreign-based players</strong>, issuing one-month notice to all of them. In an interview with <em>ESPNcricinfo.com</em>, ACB Chairman Atif Mashal said: "(Players) are not allowed to travel to any country without permission. Those players who are living on foreign land are given a month to move back to Afghanistan with their families, otherwise the cricket board will terminate their contracts. ACB has made a strict rule about player discipline and given them a one-month notice to adhere firmly with the policy." <p></p> <p></p>"All players and employees should be based in Afghanistan and they are not allowed to play in any foreign country without ACB's approval," he further added. <p></p> <p></p>Shahzad was seen in fine form for Afghanistan in the ICC World Cup Qualifiers last month. He top-scored with 84 in the final against West Indies, helping Afghanistan qualify to the 2019 World Cup. Apart from Rashid Khan, Shahzad has also played a key role in Afghanistan's rise in cricket. He holds 4,000 runs in international cricket. <p></p> <p></p><strong>As for the fine on Shahzad</strong>, Mashal mentioned: "He played in a club-level tournament without NOC (no-objection certificate) which is against the ACB code of conduct."
