Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has been fined by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for comments he made criticising Mohammad Hafeez at the ICC World Twenty20 2012.

Razzaq played the Super Eight clash against Australia but was then dropped for Pakistan's semi-final against Sri Lanka, blaming captain Hafeez for his exclusion from the side.

"I was disappointed sitting outside while the team was losing the match," he said afterwards.

"I know the team management didn't drop me, it was Hafeez who left me out. He should speak up and admit his decision."

He has subsequently apologised and been fined a sum of 100,000 rupees ($1,060).

Razzaq, 32, has played 46 Tests, 261 One-Day Internationals and 30 Twenty20 Internationals for Pakistan as well as domestic Twenty20 cricket in six different countries during his career.

He also helped Pakistan win the 2009 World Twenty20 under the leadership of Younus Khan.

"Razzaq has accepted the violation during his meeting with PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf on Friday and has been fined 100,000 rupees," a PCB statement confirmed.
