LAHORE (AFP) - Pakistan cricket batsman Umar Akmal may have rescued his team with a fighting hundred in the Asia Cup this week, but he is still in trouble with the law.

A court has summoned the 23-year-old to appear before it on March 11 to face charges of jumping a traffic signal and then scuffling with a warden.

An official said on Friday that a local sessions court had issued an order for Akmal to appear on March 11.
