Lahore: Confusion continued to prevail over the exact status of wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal who has now been asked to appear before the Pakistan Cricket Board’s integrity committee.
“There is a slight matter of some documentation that the integrity committee wants to dispense with that is why they have called Kamran,” a Board spokesman said.
Just a few days ago, PCB chief operating officer Subhan Ahmed had said that Kamran has been cleared to be considered for selection.
Cricket analysts see the call by the integrity committee as the final step towards the PCB paving way for Kamran to revive his international career, which has remained suspended since the 2011 World Cup.
The selectors have included his name in the list of 30 probables for the Twenty20 World Cup to be held in Sri Lanka this year.
“If as expected Kamran is cleared by integrity committee on Wednesday, you can also expect him to be called up for Pakistan’s three ODIs and three Twenty20 International matches against Australia in August,” a source in the Board said. (PTI)
