Two members of the national team, pacer Wahab Riaz and middle-order batsman Asad Shafiq were severely reprimanded by the Pakistan Cricket Board for using a social networking site during the ongoing tour of the West Indies.

A PCB official confirmed that the two players were reprimanded by the team management in the West Indies for using Twitter.

According to details, Riaz and Shafiq violated their central contract terms by posting tweets.

"Wahab (Riaz) had even posted some pictures of the Pakistan team bus on the social networking site which have now been removed," a PCB source said.

Under the new terms of the central contract, the PCB has strictly prohibited players from using social networking sites on tours.
