LAHORE All-rounder Shoaib Malik will captain Pakistan in the one-off Twenty20 international against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday. The Pakistan Cricket Board have turned to Malik after regular T20 skipper Shahid Afridi was banned for two matches for biting the ball during the fifth One-day International. Malik will lead the Pakistan team in the only T20 match against Australia in the absence of Afridi, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said. Pakistan have yet to win during their tour of Australia, losing 3-0 in the Tests and 5-0 in the one-day internationals, prompting chief selector Iqbal Qasim to quit on Sunday. Malik was sacked as national captain by the PCB in January 2009 after a largely unsuccessful year-and-a-half in charge but, with Test skipper Mohammad Yousuf sidelined by a knee injury and his predecessor Younus Khan retired from T20 internationals, the PCB had few alternatives. Under International Cricket Council rules any attempt to change the condition of the ball through illegal means is a violation of the players code of conduct and is liable to punishment. ICC asks CA for report on Khalid assault The International Cricket Council(ICC) has asked Cricket Australia (CA) for a report into the breach of security that allowed a spectator to enter the field of play during the fifth and final One-day International between Australia and Pakistan at the WACA in Perth yesterday and tackle the Pakistan opener Khalid Latif to the ground. The incident occurred in the 46th over of Australias innings. Latif was brought down from behind by 37-year-old David James Fraser but was uninjured. The spectator has been charged with assault and given a life ban from the ground. He was also fined A$500 (280). Obviously the ICC is very disappointed by the incident, an ICC spokesperson said. There has been a clear security breach. We have asked CA to send us a detailed report on the incident before we can make any comment. Given the ICCs zero tolerance for such breaches, the matter is being viewed with concern and it could be brought up at the ICC executive board meeting in Dubai from 9-11 February. Ricky Ponting, said: I just hope I never see that again to tell you the truth. I had seen that once a long time ago and that ended up being a horrible incident and seeing it again is a worry. The PCB is thought to be considering pursuing the matter though it has yet to make an official statement.
