For 3 years, Umar Akmal barred all types of corruption charges from the PCB Disciplinary Panel.
Disputable Cricket Business Umar Akmal has for three years been banned from all forms of cricket on charges of cheating by the PCB Disciplinary Panel of Pakistan.
PCB officials against corruption charged Umar with not commenting on an approach to fix matches in Pakistan Super League 5 in two different cases.
Umar, who was briefly suspended for his team Quetta Gladiators on Feb 20 and prohibited from participating in the Pakistan Super League, was found guilty of violating Article 2.4.4 of the Anti-Corruption Code of the PCB.
Umar issued a alert from the PCB until March 31, but he chose not to contest it.
The PCB subsequently referred the matter to Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan, former Lahore Supreme Court Judge, chairman of the Disciplinary Panel Justice (retired).
Umar is the 2nd high-profile, corruption-banning cricket driver after batsmen Sharjeel Khan opened. His role in the spot-setting scandal that hit the PSL earlier that year was handed a five year ban (half of the ban was suspended) in 2017.
Many of Pakistan's big names repeatedly asked the PCB to set a case in point by banishing accused players from former captain Javed Miandad.
"Spot fixing players should be disciplined harshly," he said.
The penalty should also be on a similar line as spot-fixing should be hanged, so no player will think of doing anything of that sort. An example should be put, Miandad said on his channel on Youtube.
The first one to impose a living ban on all the actors suspected of corruption in Pakistan cricket, Mohammad Hafeez was also accepted by the former skipper Shahid Afridi.
"I feel these examples should have been set in the past but this didn't happen and that is why we have seen such cases on regular basis," Afridi told the Geo channel.
