Umar Akmal Involved In Match Fixing

The bookie reveals that Umar Akmal has been involved in match-fixing as he gave away a lot of matches on the tips of some "outside" money makers that have their money on the line. Personally, I also feel that this bookie may not be far from truth. Yesterday, we saw another similar debacle against New Zealand in match that Pakistan could have easily won but lost due to slow-paced batting from Umar Akmal and Shoaib Malik. Chances of Pakistan going into semifinals are slim to none and the fate depends on the other teams matches provided that we win against Australia in the final T20 world cup 2016 round match against Australia.

Pakistan cricket has long been prey to match and spot fixing and the latest case was that of Salman Butt, Muhammad Amir, and Muhammad Asif who brought disgrace to the the entire after being convicted of spot fixing against England at Lords in 2010. 

Of course, we cannot confirm or take the claims of this bookie as true word for word but match fixing has marred the cricket and it happens in low-importance matches. Although this is an old clip but we cannot rule of possibility of match fixing in every major and minor tournament just because it is not proved in the court of law.
