Islamabad: Pak cricketer Umar Akmal’s three-year suspension has been reduced to 18 months.
“I am not happy with the year-and-a-half suspension. Will appeal after consulting my lawyers,” the 30-year-old said.
Earlier, the PCB had imposed a three-year-ban on Akmal after he had violated the Article 2.4.4 of the PCB’s code of conduct on two occasions.
Akmal in an interview had said that he was offered $200,000 by fixers to leave two deliveries in one of the matches. He also claimed that he was offered money to skip matches against India.
