Umar Akmal’s Ban Reduced to 18 Months

LAHORE: Batsman Umar Akmal’s three-year suspension, which was slapped on him by the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Disciplinary Panel for not reporting approaches by corrupt elements, has been reduced to 18 months.

The PCB had imposed a three-year-ban on Akmal after he had violated the Article 2.4.4 of the PCB’s code of conduct on two occasions.

Speaking to the media after his appearance in front of the disciplinary panel, Akmal said he was thankful that his suspension was reduced and that he would appeal again to get the remaining suspension further reduced.
