Batsman Umar Akmal’s appeal against his three-year ban will be heard on June 11 by former Supreme Court decide Justice (retd) Faqir Muhammad Khokhar as impartial adjudicator, the Pakistan Cricket Board introduced on Friday.
Akmal was banned for three-years on April 27 by the PCB’s Disciplinary Panel, for not reporting spot repair approaches made to him through the Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches.
“Notices for the hearing have been issued to Umar Akmal and PCB,” the cricket board posted on its web site.
Akmal had filed the appeal against the ban which was imposed after the panl discovered him responsible of breaching Article 2.4.Four of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code in two separate incidents.
The spot fixing provides have been made to Akmal at two separate events held in Defence Housing Society Lahore.
The Disciplinary Panel Chairman Mr Justice (retid) Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan had noticed that Akmal was non-cooperative and didn’t present any regret.
The controversial Akmal final performed for Pakistan in October, 2019 in a T20 sequence against Sri Lanka at residence.
