WEB DESK: Umar Akmal has been dropped from the Pakistan Twenty20 squad to face England as he is under investigation for bringing the sport into disrepute in an off-field incident.
Akmal, the flamboyant 25-year-old middle-order batsman, was not included in the 16-man squad announced on Thursday for the three T20 internationals later this month following reports about his alleged misbehaviour at a dance party in Hyderabad.
For his immoral actions, Akmal and his friends got arrested by police but they were released on bail just after an hour.
Later, Akmal talked to the media claimed that he has not done any immoral act. He is innocent. “I will talk to the PCB”, he added.
He further said, “I am available for investigation”.
“I went there for a dinner”, he added.
A statement on the PCB’s website read: “Umar Akmal was in contention for a place in the T20 squad, but he was not considered following the board issuing him a show cause notice after the press reports revealed that he had brought PCB and Pakistan Cricket into disrepute.”
