LAHORE: Tainted Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal on Tuesday appealed against his three-year ban slapped by the PCB for failing to report a corrupt approach.

As per details, Akmal has filed an appeal and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will appoint an independent panel to hear the matter.

Akmal has hired adviser to the prime minister on Parliamentary Affairs, Babar Awan’s law firm to help him in his case.PCB had banned Akmal from all forms of cricket last month after its disciplinary panel found him guilty of not reporting corrupt approaches ahead of the Pakistan Super League earlier this year.

Akmal was suspended hours before his PSL team Quetta Gladiators was to take on Islamabad in the opening match of the 2020 PSL in February.
