The show-cause was issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). According to a PCB official, the cricketer has been ordered to file a reply to the notice within seven days.

On Wednesday, the 27-year-old batsman had claimed that the head coach abused him during a net practice at the National Cricket Academy (NCA).
