The Pakistan Cricket Board has begun investigations into Quetta Gladiators batsman Umar Akmal’s alleged involvement in spot-fixing after suspending him on the eve of the Pakistan Super League.
The 29-year-old is suspected of having agreed to fix three different moments in his side’s opening game against Islamabad United.
Umar’s phones, laptop and ipads have been sent to forensics, with a charge sheet expected to be prepared once further investigations are finished.
Early investigations suggest that there is evidence in Umar’s phone implicating him of spot-fixing.
The Lahore-born is no stranger to controversy and escaped board action just last month after he was said to have exposed himself to members of the fitness training camp in a moment of frustration for pushing him too hard during the tests.
