Pakistan cricketer Umar Akmal has been active on social media after completion of his reduced 12 months ban. Akmal was handed 3-year ban in February 2020 for failing to report multiple approaches of corruption. The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) later reduced the ban, imposing a fine of Pakistani Rupee 4.25 million.
The 30-year-old shared a video on the internet lately , where he can be seen hymning to one of his favourite songs.
