Srinagar: Pakistan’s head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq Thursday suggested Umar Akmal to change his attitude and show commitment in order to be regular in the team.
Misbah, while agreeing with the potential Akmal posses, said he needs to focus more.
“If Umar thinks he can play in the same mode as he is today, it will be difficult for him. He needs to show total commitment and focus to become a regular member of the side,” Misbah told reporters via video conference.
“He also has to work very hard on his fitness and show everyone he is very much interested in playing for a long time for Pakistan,” He added.
Akmal was recently suspended by Pakistan Cricket Board for breaching clauses of anti-corruption code, owing to not reporting the spot-fixing approach by a bookie to him during PSL 5.
