Defending champions of Pakistan Super League, Quetta Gladiators, have dealt with a huge blow just ahead of their opening game against Islamabad United tonight.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has suspended Quetta’s star batsman, Umar Akmal, with immediate effect under Article 4.7.1* of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code, PCB said in a press release today.
The suspension means that the middle-order batsman will not be allowed to participate in any cricket-related activity.
“As this is an ongoing investigation, the PCB will not make any further comments,” the press release said.
On the other hand, PCB has allowed Quetta Gladiators to sign his replacement for the PSL. Quetta Gladiators are set to play their opening game in the Pakistan Super League tonight against Islamabad United.
