Pakistan T20 skipper Shahid Afridi has appealed to the PCB to include middle-order batsman Umar Akmal in the squad for the upcoming T20 series against England, a reliable source has revealed.

According to the source, the flamboyant all-rounder wants the PCB to complete the disciplinary hearing against Umar quickly after the 25-year-old batsman was allegedly involved in activities which ‘brought disrepute to Pakistan cricket’ while he was featuring for domestic side SNGPL in Hyderabad in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam trophy.
