LAHORE, Aug 04 (APP): Pakistan test batsman Umar Akmal has been allowed to resume club cricket activities as part of his rehabilitation process, which commenced last month.

In the processes completed to date, Umar has shown remorse, attended an anti-corruption
lecture and participated in a Q&A session conducted by the Security and Anti-Corruption
Department, said a spokesman of the Pakistan Cricket Board here on Wednesday.

“His rehabilitation programme is expected to conclude next month, following which he
will become eligible to participate in the Pakistan domestic cricket season 2021-22”, he said.

Umar Akmal was handed three-year ban from all cricket by Chairman of the PCB Disciplinary Panel Mr Justice (retd) Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan after the batsman was charged with alleged two breaches of Article 2.4.4 of the board’s Anti-Corruption Code in two unrelated incidents.
