Kamran Akmal says he has given full co-operation to the Pakistan Cricket Board's integrity committee as he tries to gain clearance to play for his country again.

The wicketkeeper has not been selected by Pakistan since the summer tour of England and has been investigated over spot-fixing allegations, along with Shoaib Malik and Danish Kaneria.

And Akmal has now confirmed that he has presented full details regarding his movable and immovable properties, and activities other than cricket, to the PCB.

"Whatever the PCB integrity committee has asked for, I have provided them," the 28-year-old told

"I have co-operated fully with the committee and I have presented all of the documents that they had requested."

Akmal believes his meeting with the PCB on Thursday was civil and now hopes that nothing else is standing in the way of him resuming his international career.


He added: "The meeting was very cordial. Of course I can't go into full details of exactly what was discussed, but I hope now that this matter is behind me and that I can now be given approval to recommence my international career.

"I've always tried to give my best for my country and will continue to do so in future."

The trio of Akmal, Malik and Kaneria have not been charged by the board but were still left out of the tour of the United Arab Emirates to play South Africa.

Akmal and Malik were also recently denied permission to play league cricket in Bangladesh.

With the clearance situation of the three players not yet resolved, the PCB have delayed naming their squad for the World Cup until January 5.

The 30-man provisional squad was due to be named on December 19, but the ICC gave the PCB an extension due to the current lack of clarity over the availability of the trio.
