With 1820 runs from 69 games, Kamran Akmal is the second-highest run-getter in Pakistan Super League history. He was initially demoted from the platinum category to the gold category by PCB before the draft.
Only recently, Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal resumed his career after remaining suspended from all cricket activities since February 2020.
Umar Akmal has been at the centre of controversy many times in his career and got a 18-month ban for breaching PCB's anti-corruption code.
Umar, who was recently allowed to resume playing club cricket in Lahore, was banned by the PCB last year for not reporting spot-fixing offers
Umar, 30, was provisionally suspended one night before the PSL began in February 2020 for not reporting spot-fixing approaches
The Court of Arbitration for Sport has reduced the ban on Umar Akmal to 12 months but hit him with a fine of 4.25 million Pakistani Rupees for breaching the PCB's Anti-Corruption code
The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) had reduced Akmal's suspension to 12 months but had imposed a fine of 42.50 lakh Pakistani Rupees on him
The PCB’s disciplinary panel in April 2020 found Umar guilty on two charges of separate breaches and handed him a three-year suspension
The Court of Arbitration for Sport had reduced the ban on Umar Akmal to 12 months but hit him with a fine of Rs 4.25 million for breaching the Pakistan Cricket Board’s Anti-Corruption code.
Umar was banned for three years by PCB's Anti-Corruption Tribunal in April last year but he appealed the decision
The batsman filed the appeal with the CAS after an independent adjudicator of the Pakistan Cricket Board reduced his ban from three-years to 18 months.
Originally, Umar Akmal was banned for three years by a one-man disciplinary panel of the board after he failed to report two approaches to spot-fix matches in the Pakistan Super League
Umar Akmal was banned for three years by a one-man disciplinary panel of the PCB after he failed to report two approaches to spot-fix matches in the Pakistan Super League
Kamran Akmal said that in the past, players had been banned for short terms and even had their fines reduced for the same offence but in Umar's case the PCB is not even satisfied with the 18 months ban
Last month, the three-year ban initially handed to Umar Akmal for failing to report corrupt approaches was reduced to 18 months on "compassionate" grounds by an independent adjudicator
The likes of Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt, who too were found guilty of spot-fixing like Danish Kaneria, have been allowed back into the PCB fold
Umar Akmal was handed a three-year ban in April for failing to report approaches ahead of the Pakistan Super League.
Umar Akmal was banned for three-years on April 27 by the PCB's Disciplinary Panel, for not reporting spot fix approaches made to him during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches
