Umar Akmal Didn’t Contest Corruption Charges

Umar Akmal did not make an appeal against the corruption charges that had been filed by the PCB against him.

Pakistani wicketkeeper-batsman Umar Akmal has been charged with two corruption cases by the Pakistan Cricket Board. In his response to the PCB, Akmal did not appeal against the charges which were filed against him. With that, the PCB had already referred the matter to the disciplinary panel. 

The PCB has charged Akmal with two corruption charges. Specifically, a violation of Article 2.4.4, which relates to the failure of disclosure of corrupt approaches and the option of contesting liability or level of sanction or both as per Article 4.6.6 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code. 

In line with the two charges, Akmal had been provisionally suspended since February 20 and the issue of the notice of charge took place on March 17. The PCB media released a statement which said, ‘Until the Chairman of the Disciplinary Panel has announced his decision, the PCB will not comment on the matter’.

If the offences charged against Akmal be confirmed, then the player may face a punishment of at least a six-month suspension or a life ban on the sport. He was also prohibited to play for the Pakistan Super League in which he had played for the Quetta Gladiators. To know more about this sports league, head over to Betwala.
