Umar Akmal cleared


Pakistan cricket team middle order batsman Umar Akmal has been cleared by the Pakistan cricket board as the report they received from the Hayderabad police does not include Umar Akmal’s name.

Earlier Umar Akmal was dropped from the T20 squad versus England because a PCB press release stated that he had brought disrepute to Pakistan cricket and board through his actions. Reports stated that he had attended a dance party with some first class team mates where he behaved inappropriately. According to latest reports Umar Akmal also met COO Subhan Ahmed and discussed important matters related to the scandal.

Now it remains to be seen weather the batsman will be inducted in team for the T20s versus England or will they make him wait for Pakistan’s next assignment. It is interesting to point out here that captain of the T20 side Shahid Afridi made it clear that if Akmal has not done anything wrong he should be inducted in the T20s as he is an important player.
