Umar Akmal files appeal against PCB ban

Cricketer Umar Kamal on Tuesday filed an appeal against the Pakistan Cricket Board verdict that banned him for three years for failing to report multiple approaches by corrupt elements, 24NewsHD TV channel reported.

The right-handed batsman filed the appeal through his lawyer seeking lesser sentence.

It is pertinent to note that on April 27, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) banned Umar Akmal for three years for failing to report multiple approaches by corrupt elements.

PCB's disciplinary committee headed by Justice (R) Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan announced the decision after the cricketer decided not to fight the charges against him.

As per the committee’s ruling, Umar Akmal had violated the Article 2.4.4 of the PCB's code of conduct on two occasions.
