Umar Akmal gets in another controversy
LAHORE: Pakistan’s flamboyant middle-order batsman, Umar Akmal has caught another controversy on October 8, when he insulted his fellow player and got him out of dressing room while captaining Lahore Whites in Quaid e Azam trophy.
Umar Akmal put up an impressive show with the bat against PIA at Lahore City Cricket Association Ground. He scored 74 runs in the first inning of the game and struck 101 runs in the second innings. He was praised for his batting and his captaincy as well.
However, he is again finding himself in trouble as he insulted a cricketer named Abdul Wahab Dar before team and asked him to leave the dressing the room, which is not his domain.
As a result, the secretary of Lahore Regional Cricket Association (LRCA), Nadeem Ahmed has written a letter to the president of LRCA, Muhammad Shoaib Dar to take action against Umar Akmal.
Nadeem Ahmed wrote in the letter that only team manager has the authority to take such an action against a player on disciplinary grounds that too with prior approval from the higher authorities and Akmal has disrespected all these rules.
The secretary of the LRCA has requested the president to take an action against the Lahore Whites captain so that there are no such incidents in the future.
Umar Akmal recently made a comeback against West Indies after being dropped on disciplinary grounds by Inzamam Ul Haq during the all important tour to England and such acts can push him in deep trouble.
