SPORTS DESK KARACHI - Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi's manager has admitted he was not happy nor in agreement with the all-rounder's decision to move court against the PCB. Umran Khan, whose company Aces and Middle East represents number of Pakistani players made it clear he wasn't really happy with the threat of legal action taken by his star client. "It wasn't a situation that I was really happy with. We had answered the show cause notice issued by PCB and we'd accepted the breaches of the articles. But once he got back to Pakistan then people started influencing him and I couldn't control that as I was here in England," Umran said. Having worked with a lot of the Pakistani players, Umran had learnt a lot that their mentality is different. Umran said that Pakistani players opt for the public bravado rather than using common sense. "What they actually did was taking the long way around and end up doing exactly what I said. He could have just faced the disciplinary committee as was planned, got the fine, and accepted that he'd broken the code of conduct and he'd probably have been playing for Hampshire a lot sooner than now," Umran said. Afridi went to the Sindh High Court challenging the disciplinary process initiated against him by the PCB for breaching the code of conduct. But later, he withdrew the petition and appeared before the disciplinary committee that has fined him rupees 4.5 million but permitted him the NOC to go and play for Hampshire. Umran felt that the fine was quite excessive. "It's a lot of money. But if you look back at then I think that the PCB were left in a situation where they had to come across strongly. I think it would have been different had Shahid faced the committee on the original hearing.
