Umar Akmal, the middle order batsman, after facing backlash over his poor performance against Australia, has to meet another stigma when he was fined 20 percent of his match fee by Pakistan cricket board for a late night-out ahead of Pakistan’s fifth ODI against Australia in Dubai,. The PCB in its statement said that Akmal pleaded guilty to the charge, apologised for his actions and accepted the sanction proposed by the team manager.
“I am glad that Umar has realised his mistake, and has accepted and apologised for his actions, which were clearly unprofessional and in no way can be ignored or overlooked,” PCB Managing Director Wasim Khan said.
“The PCB expects a high level of professionalism and commitment from its players, and this action is a reiteration and timely reminder that any indiscipline shall not be tolerated or accepted.”
