Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal was fined 20 per cent of his match for visiting a nigtclub in Dubai forward of the fifth ODI in opposition to Australia.
The center-order batsman has obtained an official remand for his actions as nicely.
“Umar pleaded responsible to the cost, apologised for his actions and accepted the sanction proposed by staff supervisor Talat Ali,” a press launch by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said.
Wasim Khan, the Managing Director of the cricket board, stated that such behaviour can’t be ignored.
“I’m glad that Umar has realised his mistake, and has accepted and apologised for his actions, which had been clearly unprofessional and by no means might be ignored or neglected. The PCB expects a excessive degree of professionalism and dedication from its gamers, and this motion is a reiteration and well timed reminder that any indiscipline shall not be tolerated or accepted,” he stated.
Umar Akmal’s video of hanging out on the nightclub went viral on the social media.
Akmal was the seventh highest run-scorer within the sequence with 150 runs from 5 matches with a mean of 30.00 and strike fee of 88.24.
Pakistan went on to endure a 5-Zero whitewash by the hands of Australia within the five-match sequence within the United Arab Emirates.
