WEB DESK: Umar Akmal’s one-match suspension has been put on hold, which means he will be available to play the T20 against New Zealand in Auckland on Friday. The decision was made after the player appealed against the suspension, ESPN Cricinfo reported.
“Umar has advised PCB that he wishes to appeal against the ban,” the PCB said. “Since Umar has opted to appeal against the decision, hence as per the PCB’s regulations, the penalty of one match will remain suspended until the decision of appellate tribunal.”
Umar was handed the one-match suspension last week for a clothing breach in Pakistan’s domestic first-class tournament, the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.
