Akmal was banned for three-years on 27 April by the PCB's Disciplinary Panel, for not reporting spot fixing approaches made to him during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches.

"Notices for the hearing have been issued to Umar Akmal and PCB," the cricket board posted on its website.

Akmal had filed the appeal against the ban which was imposed after the panl found him guilty of breaching Article 2.4.4 of the PCB Anti-Corruption Code in two separate incidents.

The spot fixing offers were made to Akmal at two separate parties held in Defence Housing Society Lahore.
The Disciplinary Panel Chairman Mr Justice (retid) Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan had observed that Akmal was non-cooperative and did not show any remorse.

The controversial Akmal last played for Pakistan in October 2019 in a T20 series against Sri Lanka at home.
