The ghost of match-fixing is back to haunt Pakistan cricket with reports emerging that Umar Akmal was approached to fix matches during a 2012 tour of the UAE but the batsman immediately reported the matter to his team's security manager.

A source aware of the incident told PTI that Umar had been called up regularly by a number from India in which the caller thrice attempted to coax him into entering a fixing racket promising him lucrative returns for his cooperation.

A source disclosed that Umar's prompt action and cooperation in reporting the approach was much appreciated by the Pakistan team management and the ICC ACSU at that time.
