Umar Akmal appears before PCB to explain match-fixing claims

Pakistani cricketer Umar Akmal appeared before the anti-corruption unit of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to explain his comments regarding match-fixing.

Akmal, in an interview to SAMAA TV, had claimed that he was offered money for fixing matches against India. The cricket board had taken notice of the interview and summoned him to explain his statements.

The questioning went on for 150 minutes.

According to reports, he answered the questions and was also issued a non-objection certificate to take part in the Canadian League.

Match-fixing has become a major concern for the sport in recent years, and a high-profile incident involving Pakistan on tour to England in 2010 saw Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir found guilty of being part of a plot to bowl no-balls at pre-arranged times during a test.

The wicket keeper batsman said that former coach Waqar Younis had threatened him that he will make sure that he does not get picked in the side and will keep criticizing him during commentary.
