Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal has denied accusations that he “misbehaved” with women at a party, which resulted in him being dropped for the upcoming three-match Twenty20 series against England.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) issued a show cause notice against Akmal following the alleged incident, but chairman Shaharyar Khan made it clear that the 25-year-old would be given an opportunity to explain his actions.
“I attended a dinner party after being granted official permission by my team manager,” Akmal said. “I am not answerable to anyone apart from the department I am playing for.
“Cricket is my love and I want to represent Pakistan for a long period of time.”
The three-match Twenty20 series between Pakistan and England starts on November 26 in Dubai.
