Umar Akmal has been banned for three years by Pakistan Cricket Board’s disciplinary panel after he failed to report some fixing approaches to him.

“People are jumping to conclusions about the three-year ban but the detailed order is yet to come out. Umar might eventually get a three-year ban with two years suspended or something like that,” the source told PTI.

The PCB source, talking to PTI said that the judge will suspend most part of the three-year ban given the clauses under which Umar has been charged by the Anti-Corruption Unit and also given his past track record.

This suspension of his sentence of three years ban would test the player as an individual and how he behaves and conducts himself in future feels the source.

“When majority part of a ban is suspended, the player has to be careful with his behaviour or he could end up being banned for the entire duration of the ban, he explained.
