RE - Justice (r) Farrukh Aftab, chairman of the Appellate Tribunal that heard Shoaib Akhtar's case, has said decision on Shoaib was made on merit and if the bowler thinks he has been unfairly treated, he can resort to courts.
"If he gets further relief there it would please us," he added.
Akhtar was fined Rs seven million and the ban was reduced to 18 months from five years. "I have played every ball on merit in this case. There have been advices from various quarters and we patiently made the decision on pure merit."
"In this case I was the alone batsman and all were bowlers," he added.
