Umar Akmal has always been in the news for his culprits and corrupt activities accused. He often breaks the policies and regulations and code of conduct of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). PCB has handed over him a ban of three years from all formats of the cricket.
2020 has not been so good for him as it began with troubles for Akmal. In February, when Quetta Gladiators was to plat the first game of PSL against two times PSL champions, Islamabad United, he got banned by PCB. PCB did not reveal the matter publically however, reports disclosed that the officials found something irrelevant in his phone.
Later, he removed his shirt and asked a foreign trainer where is the fat. The trainer reported him to the management. Umar has found himself under trouble several times. Recently, he was supposed to submit the charges against him accused by PCB, he failed, and as denounced by the board today, has been banned.
Back in 2014, he was indulged in a brawl with traffic police. In 2017, he had a controversial chat with the Sri Lanka coach, Mickey Arthur. Now, with much more corrupt activities, he has been banned by PCB for the next three years.
The ban has deprived Umar to play any format of the cricket for the next three years. The batsman was last seen in the ground in 2019 in two T20 matches against Sri Lanka and his appearance in the domestic cricket was back in December 2019. Umar was not appealing in the two T20Is against Sri Lanka and got dropped from the national squad after being provided with the two chances.
He has the talent with the bat but he himself has slammed his career by being involved in such activities which have almost troubled his cricketing career.
