The Pakistan Cricket Board has suspended batsman Umar Akmal under its anti-corruption code hours before the start of its premier domestic Twenty20 event in Karachi on Thursday.

The PCB did not reveal the exact nature of Akmal’s offence, but said in a statement that the batsman cannot take part in any cricket-related activity pending the investigation being carried out by the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Unit.

The suspension means Akmal will not be able to represent Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League as the title defenders will take on Islamabad United in the opening match later on Thursday night.
