Umar Akmal ban lifted
Pakistan’s middle order batsman Umar Akmal had been banned for one international match for violating the code of conduct in a domestic match.
The PCB have now decided to lift his ban, according to Haroon Rasheed, because they believe that he should not face this ban in an international match because he violated the conduct in a domestic match which is why the ban will be implemented in a domestic match.
The T20 series between Pakistan and New Zealand begins on Friday, the 15th of January, at Auckland. Shahid Afridi will be leading the side in this series.
