Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal's 18 month-ban for failing to report corrupt approaches has been reduced to a year by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The 30-year-old was also fined 4.25 million Pakistani rupees (£18,925).

The ban is backdated to when he was suspended by a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) disciplinary committee in February 2020.

Akmal will be free to play competitive cricket once he has completed a rehabilitation programme.

A three-year ban was originally imposed after he admitted to failing to report approaches made during the Pakistan Super League last year.
