Sunday, 18 August 2013 - 16:17


Umar Akmal, the Pakistan batsman, will miss the limited-overs leg of the Zimbabwe tour.


Akmal, who is in the West Indies playing in the Caribbean Premier League, spent a night at the hospital after a seizure on the flight to Jamaica on Wednesday.


The PCB has asked Akmal to return to Pakistan so that he can be further examined by a neurologist.


He will be accompanied by a doctor on his return flight as a precautionary measure.
