Umar Akmal eligible to return to cricket after CAS reduces his ban by six months


He must, however, pay a fine and take part in a PCB rehabiliation programme first

Umar Akmal‘s 18-month ban has been slashed by six months by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS), making him eligible to return to representative cricket as the PCB had originally suspended him on February 20 last year. According to the PCB, though, the reintegration is subject to the cricketer paying a fine of PKR 4.25 million (US$ 2700 approx.) and taking part in the programme of rehabilitation under the board’s anti-corruption code.
