Pakistan middle-order batsman has issued an apology for visiting a Dubai nightclub ahead of the fifth ODI against Australia.

The cricketer was slapped a 20 per cent fine by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) over violating the team curfew in the five-match series.

“I don’t want to dwell on my past mistakes and I am looking forward to my future. I am taking things as they come. My job is to perform,” he said in a press conference after guiding Balochistan to a five-wicket win over Punjab in the ongoing Pakistan Cup 2019.

He said the decision of his selection in the 2019 World Cup side rests with the selectors, coach and the captain.

Akmal played an unbeaten 136-run knock with the help of 14 boundaries and five sixes in the opening fixture of the domestic tournament.
