Karachi: Pakistan wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal and his younger brother Umar have become the first players to file a formal appeal against the ban and fine imposed on them last month by the Cricket Board (PCB).
Kamran was fined three million rupees and put on six months probation period while Umar was fined two million rupees after a PCB inquiry committee found the duo guilty of violating the code of conduct during Pakistan’s disastrous tour of Australia.
Sources close to Kamran said that he and his brother had submitted formal appeals yesterday with PCB.
“They have in their appeals asked the board to review the fines imposed on them. They claimed that they have played cricket cleanly and in true sporting spirit all their lives,” a source told PTI.
