Lahore: Pakistan Cricket Board on Monday imposed a three-year ban on Umar Akmal. This ban against them will be applicable in all formats of cricket. This means that Umar Akmal will stay away from cricket for three years now.
This ban has been imposed on Omar Akmal for not informing the board of a proposal for a fixing case.
The offer was made to him before the commencement of the fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Under the Anti-Corruption Code of PCB, it is mandatory that if a player receives any proposal for fixing, he should inform the board without delay. There is a provision for punishment for not doing so.
The PCB has shared this information in a tweet. It has been said in the tweet that the decision has been taken by Justice (Retd) Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan, Chairman of the Board’s Discipline Committee.
The PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) suspended Umar Akmal in this case on 20 February with immediate effect.
PSL was also barred from participating on behalf of Quetta Gladiators. He was found guilty of violating two provisions of the Anti-Corruption Code of the PCB.
In response to the notice, Umar Akmal had said not to appeal to the Anti-Corruption Tribunal.
The case was then referred to the Disciplinary Committee, which, after hearing on Monday, convicted Omar and banned him for three years.
