LAHORE: Pakistan middle-order batsman Umar Akmal has reportedly decided against challenging the show cause notice issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in which the governing body accused him of breaching the Anti-Corruption Code.

A source close to Umar Akmal said that he had submitted his reply to the show cause notice issued to him earlier this month and he had not challenged the charges against him.

“Umar has not challenged the charges and admitted that he made a mistake in not following the adopted procedure in such cases,” the source said.

The PCB Anti-Corruption officials had charged Umar with in two separate cases of not reporting an approach made to him to spot fix matches in the Pakistan Super League 5.

It I worth mentioning here that Umar Akmal was provisionally suspended on Feb 20 and barred from playing in the Pakistan Super League for his franchise Quetta Gladiators, has been charged for breaching Article 2.4.4 of PCB’s Anti-Corruption Code.
