Umar Akmal appeals against his three-year ban

May 20, 2020 13:51 IST

Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal on Tuesday decided to appeal against his 3-year ban slapped on him by the PCB. According to GEO NEWS, Akmal has filed an appeal and the Pakistan Cricket Board will appoint an independent panel to hear the matter. 29-year-old Akmal was found guilty of breaching PCB's anti corruption code earlier this year, as he failed to report corrupt approaches made to him by fixers on multiple occasions. Akmal had declined his chance of defending himself against the corruption charges then.
