Umar Akmal, the controversial batsman of Pakistan has been banned by the PCB for 3 years from all forms of cricket after pleading guilty to failing to report the match-fixing stances, as announced by the cricket board.
Umar Akmal, who will be turing 30 in the month of May this year, withdrew last month from challenging the charges.
The ban on the cricket star has been put in effect from the 20th of February, when he was provisionally suspended by the Pakistan Cricket Board under its anti-corruption mode, which mentions that a player must report being contacted to fix games.
The decision was announced by a disciplinary committee after a brief hearing of the PCB.
The sports star career has been busted by the disciplinary issues, which has led him to get many fines and bans.
He was apprehended in February 2014 after a short argument with a traffic warden who halted him for violating signal.
Umar represented Pakistan last time in two T20 internationals against Sri Lanka in Lahore in 2019.
The cricketer has so far played 16 tests, 121 ODIs and 84 T20Is for Pakistan.
