Akmal brothers, Salman Butt fail fitness tests conducted by PCB


Lahore: Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt, wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal and his brother Umar Akmal have increased their problems as they have failed to achieve the required standards in the fitness test.

National Team Conditioning and Strength Coach Yasir Malik took the tests of all three players on January 28. Except for running, the players didn’t meet the required requirements in other tests.

According to sources, PCB is considering to fine them and also will be eliminated from the National ODI tournament due to not passing the tests.

It must be noted that they have not signed the provincial central contracts for which the inquiry is also under consideration too.

Provincial team managers and coaches have also asked PCB to clarify the policy on the provincial contract issues.
