Umar Akmal Returns To Pakistan Domestic Cricket and will Play for Central Punjab
Batsman Umar Akmal returns to Pakistan’s domestic cricket after being convicted of match-fixing by a gambler. He will be seen in Pakistan’s domestic league for Central Punjab this season. The last time Umar Akmal played in a Pakistani jersey was in February 2020. He returned to cricket after a 16-month ban for refusing to offer to fix.
In domestic cricket, he was selected by Pakistan’s domestic league team Central Punjab. He is also desperate to return to the national team after the domestic league. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had recently allowed Umar Akmal to return to club cricket in Lahore. A PCB official said Umar was allowed to return to cricket after realizing his mistake.
The PCB official said, “Umar realized his mistake during the rehabilitation process. That’s enough to bring him back to first-class cricket. ‘
Umar said he wanted to represent Pakistan again in the future. “I am very happy to be back in domestic cricket,” said Umar Akmal in an interview with Cricket Pakistan. I will try to perform to the best of my ability. I hope I can return to the national team.
The 31-year-old has played 18 Tests, 121 ODIs, and 64 T20Is for Pakistan. He has made headlines at various times for negative reasons.
