Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) anti-corruption unit (ACU) has approached cricketer Umar Akmal to record his statement regarding a recent Al Jazeera documentary on corruption in cricket, in which he was shown to meet an alleged match-fixer's associate.

In the documentary released on Sunday, Akmal — who is currently out of the national team — was photographed "receiving and peering into a bag allegedly given to him" by the associate of a man named Aneel Munawar, though the photographs did not show whether Akmal had left with the bag.

PCB's Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmed today revealed that Akmal has been contacted on the matter, and that he has agreed to appear before the ACU once he is free from his domestic cricketing commitments.

Subhan said that the PCB has a "zero tolerance policy" on corruption and match-fixing issues, adding that "we have assured the ICC that our anti-corruption unit will thoroughly investigate the allegations leveled at our national cricketer."
