PCB bans Umar Akmal from all formats of cricket

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has banned Umar Akmal from all the formats of the cricket for the next three years.

Umar has gotten a spotlight for a past few years due to breakage of code of conducts and policies possessed by PCB.

In the recent development of news, “Akmal has been banned for three years from all forms of cricket by PCB’s disciplinary panel for violating anti-corruption code.”

“PCB charged middle-order batsman after violating two breaches of Article 2.4.4 of the PCB Anti-Corruption-code in two unlinked incidents,” the reports said.

The calendar year 2020 has not gone in favour of the batsman as he was suspended from the Pakistan Super League (PCB) on the day his franchise (Quetta Gladiators) was to play their first game against Islamabad United. Later, Umar failed to submit the charges against him, however, the board granted him a few more time but according to a new hearing, Umar Akmal won’t be able to play any game of any format for the next three years.

The Pakistani player has found himself under hot waters several times. He, in 2020, also claimed some unwanted sentence to his trainer.  Also, in 2017, after being involved in a controversy with the former coach, Mickey Arthur, was banned for the next three months. On brawling with traffic police in 2014, he found himself under troubles as well.

Umar last performed in the two T20Is matches against Sri Lanka in 2019 where he could not utilize the chance and was dropped off the squad later whereas his last domestic performance was in December against Northern Pakistan where he clinched a doubleton. He possesses the talent, but he has wasted it completely by involving himself every time in unwanted controversies.
