Umar’s attitude is the big problem & this is not the first time he had shown such behavior.

In 2014, Umar Akmal had a fight with traffic policeman & he was locked up in jail after breaking traffic light signal.

The wicket keeper batsman also made headlines after a row with security staff in a theatre auditorium in Faisalabad & he was also allegedly arrested from an event in Hyderabad.

Umar Akmal was dropped from the squad for the Champions Trophy 2017 after he did not pass 2 fitness tests in 2 months.

The selectors had no other option except to replace Akmal with Harris Sohail.

He was the only one among the 31 players to fail fitness test during a camp held in the NCA in March 2017.

He was weighted 91 kg in an annual assessment this year, with a fat level of 115.6. The fat level should not be more than 100. 

PCB said that they had decided to issue a show cause notice to Umar.
