The PCB says it has referred the case to the chairman of its disciplinary panel, Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan, who is a retired Lahore High Court judge.

The judge will now issue sanctions against Akmal which could range from a six-month suspension to a lifetime ban.

The PCB formally charged Akmal last month for two breaches of its anti-corruption code in relation to not disclosing invitations to engage in corrupt conduct.

Akmal submitted a written reply late last month. However, the PCB says he did not request a hearing before its anti-corruption tribunal.
