On Wednesday, the 27-year-old batsman had claimed that the head coach abused him during a net practice at the National Cricket Academy (NCA).
“He [Arthur] asked who allowed me to enter the NCA. He told me that it was better that I play club cricket instead of practicing at the NCA,” the cricketer said.
Arthur had denied that he had abused Akmal saying that he will take the latter to the court.
