Umar Akmal has been handed a three-year ban from all forms of cricket by PCB’s disciplinary panel for violating anti-corruption code.

PCB disciplinary panel heard the corruption charges case against Pakistan middle-order batsman Umar Akmal at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore.

The panel reviewed the PCB Anti-Corruption Unit’s evidence against the cricketer for his involvement in suspicious activities, headed by the Chairman of the Disciplinary Panel Justice (retired) Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan.

According to a statement by the PCB, Akmal did not request a hearing before the Anti-Corruption Tribunal where he could have pleaded innocence and contested the charges.

The decision indicates that Akmal has decided to accept whatever sanctions are imposed on him.

The PCB has formally charged Umar Akmal for two breaches of Article 2.4.4 of the Anti-Corruption Code in two unrelated incidents.
 
Article 2.4.4 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code reads: “Failing to disclose to the PCB Vigilance and Security Department (without unnecessary delay) full details of any approaches or invitations received by the Participant to engage in corrupt conduct under this Anti-Corruption Code.”
