The International Arbitration Court has ruled on appeals filed by the Pakistan Cricket Board and Umar Akmal against the decision of the Independent Adjudicator, extending the ban on him from 18 months to one year.
It should be noted that both the PCB and Umar Akmal had filed an appeal against this decision in the International Arbitration Court, on which the decision has now been pronounced. The PCB had appealed to both the churches to increase the sentence and Umar Akmal to abolish it.According to the PCB, Umar Akmal has been banned for 12 months and fined Rs 4.5 million for violating Section 2.4.4 of the PCB Code of Conduct once.
Umar Akmal, who was suspended on February 20, 2020, will now be eligible to play competitive cricket again by depositing Rs. The International Arbitration Court has rejected Umar Akmal’s request to return two mobile phones. Both the mobile phones are in the custody of the PCB’s Security and Vigilance Department for investigation.
Earlier, on April 27, 2020, Umar Akmal was suspended for three years by the chairman of the Independent Disciplinary Panel for violating Section 2.4.4 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code on two separate occasions.
Omar Akmal exercised his right of appeal against the decision, on which the Independent Adjudicator on July 29, 2020 took a sympathetic attitude and extended the disqualification of the former Test batsman for 18 months.The PCB has once again directed all the participants to immediately report any incident related to anti-corruption to the anti-corruption office so that we can completely eliminate the few people who can easily make money for cricketers. Let’s try to attract.
