PCB reveal why Umar Akmal given strict punishment

Umar Akmal’s perennial woes relating to a lack of discipline in cricket met a huge obstacle after he was handed a three-year ban by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for failing to report corrupt approaches to officials.

The punishment imposed on Umar seems to be harsher in comparison to some of the other sentences given to players guilty of a similar offense. Recently, the PCB released the full verdict stating that Umar was sanctioned more strictly due to his callous attitude and failure to show remorse for his mistakes.

“It appears that he (Umar Akmal) is not prepared to show remorse and seek an apology, make the admission that he failed to fulfill his responsibility under Anti-Corruption Code, Article 2.4.4, rather he tried to take refuge under the pretext that in the past whenever any such approaches were made, the matter was reported by him,” the detailed judgment read.
