A complete History of Umar Akmal bans

Umar Akmal; A batting talent wasted

Umar Akmal; A batting talent wasted

The calendar year 2020 did not bring fortunes for Umar Akmal. Pakistan’s terrific batsmen had already a long history of culprits acts and bans on breaching PCB’s code of conducts. As the fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2020) began, the authorities imposed a 3-year ban on Akmal for some reasons a few months later.

Akmal was scheduled to play the first PSL game featuring Quetta Gladiators against Islamabad United. Later, the war between CAS and PCB rose as the national board did not want the ban to cut short. Notably, after Umar filed an appeal, his ban was reduced to 18 months including the time he had spent being banned.

A complete History of Umar Akmal bans

As of now, the CAS has revealed Umar’s eligibility to play Pakistan Cricket once again. The ban has been shortened to 12 months which means it is already completed. But, Akmal would have to pay a heavy fine of over 4 Million.

He will be processed into the rehabilitation process. Soon, his fans will be seeing many hard hits in PSL, domestic cricket, or if preferred, in national squads too.
