The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Monday that it would challenge the decision to reduce the ban imposed on batsman Omar Akmal for violating the Anti-Corruption Code in the Sports Tribunal. Last month, Akmal's three-year ban was reduced to 18 months by Independent Adjudicator Fakir Mohammad Khokar.

Appeals against the adjudicator's decision under the PCB's Anti-Corruption Code can only be made in the Sports Tribunal in Switzerland. “The PCB takes anti-corruption cases seriously and will not be tolerated,” the PCB said in a statement.

It said, “The board believes that senior cricketers like Omar were aware of its consequences who have participated in many anti-corruption lectures domestically and internationally.” Akmal's ban will remain in force from February to August 2021 this year.
