According to its detailed judgement the Lahore High Court set aside the punishment and fine imposed by the PCB and declared it to be without lawful authority and of no legal effect.
     
Justice Shams Mehmood Mirza issued the detailed order on May 6 in which he ruled that the case of Akhtar was not governed by any validly promulgated rules and regulations by the PCB and therefore the remedy of writ cannot be denied to him.
     
Akhtar had filed a writ petition against the fine and a reduced 18 months ban after it was imposed in June 2008.
     
The writ petition stated that Akhtar was not governed by any central contract or laws of the PCB as his contract with them expired on Dec 31, 2007 and was never renewed.
