Umar Akmal, showed lack of remorse, banned for three years over corruption charges

His lack of remorse, despite accepting the charges, resulted in severe punishment.

The middle-order batsman has been banned for three years, from all forms of cricket by the Chairman of the Disciplinary Panel, Mr. Justice (retired) Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan. Umar Akmal was conditionally suspended on 20 February, right before the start of PSL’s fifth season this year where he was part of the Quetta Gladiator’s squad.

Akmal was charged by the PCB on two counts of breaching their anti-corruption code ahead of this year’s PSL. In his reply, Akmal did acknowledge the violation, saying that he was approached by two men on separate occasions. He did not inform the authorities of these meetings, which went against protocol and led to his suspension.

Akmal, then, chose to waive the right to a hearing before the anti-corruption tribunal, where he could have pleaded his innocence or contested the charges. So his case went directly to the PCB disciplinary panel.

In this hearing, however, he did plead not guilty. Appearing without a lawyer, Akmal tried to wiggle out of a tricky situation by justifying his failure to report the approaches. His lack of remorse, despite accepting the charges, resulted in severe punishment. His justification was understood to be feeble and was cited as a “farce”.
