Shahid Afridi's stint with Hampshire has been thrown into doubt following his suspension and the revoking of his no-objection certificate and by the Pakistan board. The ECB is investigating the issue and Hampshire have said it is unlikely Afridi will be able to play for them.

"We have received notice of the revoking of Afridi's NOC," an ECB spokesman told ESPNcricinfo, "and now we are checking to see if the correct procedures have been followed."

Afridi had been signed by Hampshire as one of their two overseas players and was due to turn out for them on the opening day of the Twenty20 season later on Wednesday.
