    Umar Akmal has been suspended by the PCB with immediate effect under Article 4.7.1 of its anti-corruption code, disallowing him from taking part in any cricket-related activity under the board's purview "pending the investigation being carried out by PCB's Anti-Corruption Unit".

    A PCB statement announced the development, but didn't reveal anything about the nature of the offence or the duration of the suspension. First up, though, it will mean that Akmal will not be a part of Quetta Gladiators' title defence at the PSL, which starts on Thursday against Islamabad United, but Quetta "are allowed to apply for Umar Akmal's replacement".

    Now what he did again? Anti corruption? Means he was involved in some sort of fixing?

    Why is PCB not producing the proofs if this is about fixing? You cannot just suspend a player without telling him why, that makes you a banana organisation.

    Also the timing is very suspicious. Why is the suspension handed over a day before the tournament begins? It clearly appears as if they are scared of him putting up good performances.

    The rumour I’ve been seeing is he fixed the 2015 World Cup against against India. He scored 0(4) and dropped Kohli

    I am hoping and praying that this report is based on something of a high level charge where he gets convicted and gets a life ban.

    PCB needs to put an end to his misery.

    They don't have to show this "proof" to public. If they have evidence of wrongdoing they can follow their procedures and deal with it their way including taking to courts.

    Cricketer Umar Akmal on Friday admitted to meeting a bookie and failing to inform the Pakistan Cricket Board of the matter, sources told Geo News.

    Akmal was suspended by the PCB on Thursday from cricket-related activities for violating an anti-corruption code.

    According to sources familiar with the matter, Akmal admitted to the meeting after strong evidence in this regard was presented to him by the anti-corruption unit of the PCB. On Thursday night, Geo News had reported that the board intercepted a phone call Umar had made to bookies.

    Senior sports journalist Abdul Majid Bhatti, while speaking to anchor Shahzeb Khanzada, said that sources in the PCB had confirmed that the cricketing body possessed the record of an intercepted phone call between Akmal and bookmakers.

    According to Bhatti, the anti-corruption unit of PCB monitored the suspicious conversations Akmal was having with bookies for a full four-days before taking up the matter with PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani on Wednesday night.

    Besides Mani, PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan, the head coach of Quetta Gladiators, Moin Khan, and the owner of the Quetta team, Nadeem Omar, were also present in the meeting, Bhatti told Khanzada.

    The anti-corruption unit has also confiscated cell phones of the cricketer.

    The PCB, in its press release issued yesterday, said the suspension was "effective immediately under Article 4.7.1 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code, which means he cannot take part in any cricket-related activity pending the investigation being carried out by PCB".

    The scourge of corruption reared its ugly head again on Thursday and the timing couldn’t have been worse, writes sports journalist Khalid Hussain.

    Hussain believes Umar’s is a big jolt for the PSL and has affected the celebrations surrounding the fact that the whole tournament was being played on Pakistani soil.

    The journalist argues that Umar who was once regarded as one of the most promising Pakistani batsman has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. During his 11-year career he has been slapped with several penalties but this one, related to corruption, could well be the worst.

    Hussain argues that the latest suspension adds to Umar’s bad boy image, adding that if he is found guilty then it could be the end of his international career.

    ^^ Disappointed !!

    I was really hoping of a serious offense that would result in a 10 years ban to effectively end his career.

    But this little incident will result in a little slap on the wrist, and he will comeback and we will again have to tolerate this butt ugly idiot.

    well hardly surprising that kamran made such a statement. People deny and deny until a full judgment is announced against them and post that it becomes a full conspiracy as if the entire kainat was out to get them. In 2010, only three players were caught but that doesnt mean the rest werent involved. They just werent caught and many of them got scot free and continued to play. PCB should clamp down hard with zeri tolerance policy

    In a legal sense yes technically they are not guilty but that does not mean that they were not involved. In fact the probability is that they were very much involved and willing to be involved in such things.

    Umar Akmal charged under PCB Anti-Corruption Code

    Lahore, 20 March 2020: The Pakistan Cricket Board has charged Umar Akmal with two breaches of Article 2.4.4 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code in two unrelated incidents.

    Article 2.4.4 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code reads as: “Failing to disclose to the PCB Vigilance and Security Department (without unnecessary delay) full details of any approaches or invitations received by the Participant to engage in Corrupt Conduct under this Anti-Corruption Code”.

    Umar Akmal was issued the Notice of Charge on Tuesday, 17 March, and has 14 days (31 March 2020) to respond in writing to the charge.

    According to Article 6.2, the range of permissible period of ineligibility for those charged and found guilty for a violation of Article 2.4.4 is a minimum of six months and a maximum of a lifetime.

    Umar Akmal was provisionally suspended on 20 February 2020.

    The PCB will not make any further comment pending the outcome on this case.

    Should be a lifetime ban, he's had enough chances

    But won't be surprised if its a measly 6 month drama ban

    If PCB puts a non-challangeable life time ban on this mental midget, it will take him and PCB, out of misery for good.
