‘Umar Akmal makes it to the list of idiots’ Ramiz Raja


Lahore: Former Test cricketer Ramiz Raja called Umar Akmal an ‘Idiot’ and asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to legislate on corruption in the game.

Raja took to Twitter to react on PCB’s decision to ban Akmal for three years from all formats of the game under the Anti-Corruption Code.

“So, Umar Akmal officially makes it to the list of idiots! Banned for 3 years. What a waste of talent! It’s high time that Pakistan moved towards passing a legislative law against match-fixing. Behind bars is where such jack asses belong! Otherwise brave for more,” he wrote.

It must be noted here that Akmal has been banned for three years under PCB Anti-Corruption Code. He was charged with two breaches of Article 2.4.4. The 29-years-old cricketer was suspended with immediate effect just a day before the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 5.
