Get Cricket updates:What's this?

The Lahore [Images] High Court on Friday lifted an 18-month ban on Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar [Images] for indiscipline.

Although the court lifted the suspension, it did not withdraw the seven million rupees ($101,000) fine imposed by the Pakistan Cricket Board appellate tribunal last month.

The PCB handed the volatile fast bowler a five-year ban in April for several instances of indiscipline and violating the conditions of a two-year probation.

The tribunal later reduced the suspension to 18 months with a fine.
