Middle-order batsman Umar Akmal is once again in the headlines for all the wrong reasons after he was reported to have misbehaved with staff members at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Lahore during a fitness test, ESPNcricinfo has reported.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has taken notice of the incident and Umar now
faces the prospect of a domestic suspension for his actions.
Umar’s brother Kamran Akmal and former skipper Salman Butt might face a similar ban in the upcoming National One Day Cup as they too didn’t cover themselves in glory during the fitness test.
Umar both failed their fitness tests ‘by significant margins’ while Salman stormed
out after he wasn’t allowed to reschedule his test.
controversial trio were in superb form in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy when they
guided their Central Punjab side to victory in the final against Northern. Kamran
and Salman were the second and third-highest scorers in the competition
respectively, while Umar smashed 218 in the final to claim the man-of-the-match
