Amir also gets fined over using inapt language and arguing with the PIA players
Issuing a clear warning to cricketer Mohammad Amir, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan said on Saturday his misbehavior or attitude problems will not be tolerated anymore.
The statement comes in the wake of PCB match referee fining Amir 150 per cent of his match fee as he violated the code of conduct during the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match played between Sui Southern Gas and PIA in Faisalabad.
Amir was fined over using inapt language and arguing with the PIA players.

He is currently on a rehabilitation programme initiated by the board for him, Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif since they have completed their bans for spot fixing.
“Amir has been fined because he used abusive language and misbehaved,” said the PCB chairman. “Considering he has just come from completing a spot fixing ban if he doesn’t behave or respect his fellow players I am afraid he has no place in the Pakistan team as long as I am there.”
Although Amir appears to be outstandingly well, there have also been rumours of ball tampering circulated by the teams beaten by Sui Gas and against whom Amir amazingly took 10 wickets.

In an another development, Amir has also been given chance to play for a franchise in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), which is set to run from November 25 to December 25.
The final permission will be given by the PCB deciding whether Amir could play the BPL or not.
However, the BPL timings will clash with the ongoing Quaid Trophy Amir has already been qualified and allowed for.
