    [REPORT] Umar Akmal admits mistake, promises not to repeat act; says he's been under mental strain

    KARACHI: Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal has written to the PCB that his outburst directed at coach Mickey Arthur was result of mental duress and pressure.

    Akmal, in his reply to the PCB show-cause, admitted to breaching the players' code of conduct and promised he will not behave in such manner in future.

    Akmal has been in trouble since he had an altercation with Arthur at the National Cricket Academy last month and rushed to the media to claim that he had been abused by the foreign coach.

    "Umar has basically admitted that he should not have gone to the media and made accusations against Arthur and he has asked the PCB to accept his explanation and assured them he will not repeat his mistake again," one source said.

    The PCB had asked for an explanation from the Pakistani batsman for going to the media without seeking permission from the Board and then making accusations against the coach.

    Akmal in his first reply had called on the PCB Chairman Najam Sethi to appoint an independent committee to probe the incident and said he would be willing to serve any punishment if found guilty of misbehaving with Arthur.

    Sethi appointed a four-member committee to probe the matter and was not satisfied with Akmal's reply and subsequently issued him a second notice giving him ten-day time to respond.

    The source said Akmal had consulted his father in law -- former Test leg spinner Abdul Qadir -- who had advised him to avoid a confrontation path with Arthur and the board.

    "Qadir advised him to accept his mistake and seek pardon. Umar in his reply has said that he reacted the way he did because he has been under lot of mental strain and duress in recent months but he had gone to the national cricket academy after getting permission from batting coach Grant Flower," the source added.

    Such a dramabaaz.

    This guy should be working Bollywood films not playing cricket. Makes a big scene then pleads for forgiveness.

    I look forward to the next plot twist in his career.

    We need to give credit where due, for once he has shown a bit of accountability ! And the reason is actually understandable to an extent, mentally he's not quiet there and I also hope he gets help in that area to. Apology accepted Umar Akmal. Just focus on your cricket now.

    What apology? PCB should now punish him to breach the conduct by banning him for atleast a year. If opology is all that matter, sharjeel, irfan, shahzaib, salman, asif, amir etc all apologise but they were punushed.

    Why should I be judgemental piece of crap like the rest, even more so when the man has apologised and displayed a bit of accountability for once, low lives will always find a way to complain about something though, in this instance an apology !

    Do you think he had any other option?

    Umar Akmal is a nobody now with no credibility in the cricket world

    He is just trying to save whatever's left of his sorry career and reputation

    I mean how else he can explain his idi.otic behavior all these years

    Agreed.

    This sort of behaviour is acceptable when you are clearly the best player in the team.

    On performance he is at best a fringe player.

    Agree, if he was a strong performer then it would be just about bearable, but for a negative net worth contributor the next step is a no-brainer. Needs to be permanently put out to pasture.

    Mickey is an Englishman after all (born in J'burg, but he is from British roots) - I think, a good one on one conversation in proper spirit from Umar (may be with tea & cookies) can resurrect his career, because Mickey is a pro & he can raise above personal ego in bigger interest. Everything can be resolved, but Umar has to prove his fitness & hunger; otherwise these chip tricks won't help as long as Arthur is in charge. Sarfraz, neither Ul-Haq also won't interfere here, over-ruling Arthur.


    @Junaids - what do you think - is it possible for Umar to play during Arthur's tenure, if he can pass the fitness test & make the team on merit?

    Umar is annoyed with the fact the MA dropped him out of the squad. This cost UA close 2.5 crore and that for a pea brained player is galling.

    @Junaids - what do you think - is it possible for Umar to play during Arthur's tenure, if he can pass the fitness test & make the team on merit?

    One thing I don't get.

    Why do people make it seem as if discipline an fitness are the only things wrong with Umar Akmal?

    Why is an impression given that if he figured out these two things then he has a place in the team

    The fact is that based on cricket alone he doesn't make the team

    He should be back in the team asap, Greatest talent in the world being wasted because of silly stuff like this. Everyone make mistakes. Just bring him back and groom him for captaincy when for when sarfraz retires

    It's a no-brainer tbh. We don't even need a coach then, he can be player-captain-coach. 3 in 1 package.

    As expected from Umar.

    He knew he was in the wrong and had nowhere to turn.

    Play the stress card and hope it's alright.

    Let me take a slightly different tack.

    All Arthur's comments for the last year made me think that Umar Akmal was next in line for a Test berth.

    Arthur now sees what is wrong in the guy's head. The question is, does he think he's worth the effort to carry him around with the squad?

    But Mickey insulted the whole Pakistan.... The nation!!!!! As a true Pakistani, how he can forgive that and make this U turn just for the sake of his career?

    Just because U is his initial, it doesn't mean he can use it whatever way he likes. Principles naam ka cheez hain bhai.

    True - don't think Arthur bothers much about personal mud slinging; but he must be confused now - what else I can do for a guy already given 6/7 chances!!!!!

    I think, his other wrong things are function of discipline, fitness & attitude - not his cricket skills. If those three can be fixed, he is easily the MVP of the LO side - a player who can win from No. 5/6 & can keep.

    If you notice carefully - Arthur said that Ahmed needs to fix his game in domestics, which indicates that it's skill; true that Ahmed's game didn't move forward from 2013, in fact regressed. For Umar, Arthur gave him 6/7 chances to get himself established; and still telling in the line of his fitness, attitude - not his technical skills.

    The guy is an !d!ot, which was evident when he allowed Sarfraz to stanch his WK-batsman role, 4 months before WC - now what he is doing is beyond idiocy.

    Will be back in the news again next month. How many times has he promised not to repeat.
    Pak should give up on him until he realises where he is head to and start putting on efforts to win back his place. He must be forced to wait like fawad, Maqsood and so on. Just one performance this idiot will come to media to seek attention along with his brother dropmal advocating for his return after one good knock.

    He may have saved his domestic and 20/20 franchise slogging career.

    But the door should be firmly shut and bolted down firmly regarding his Pak career.

    Growing up it was always the pretty boys in school that acted like brats.

    Can someone please clarify why UA acts this way?

    He wants to be the pretty boy, maybe :-P




    How could you say he is not one


    Sir Mamoon:
    Is Yasir a very good spinner? No - Is Yasir good enough for overseas Tests? No
