“It was a stupid statement really. He has no business to talk about religion on the field, especially when you are on a foreign tour,” Shaharyar told PTI yesterday.

“It is mentioned on the players’ contract that you are not supposed to talk about religion on the field,” he said.

The PCB has already put the matter before its disciplinary committee and Shaharyar said the matter will be dealt with appropriately.
