After the resignation of Muhammad Hafeez over defeat in Twenty20 World Cup, the seat of the captain is still vacant.
Some names have emerged, however, who could be given the captaincy of the Green Shirts in the short format of the game.
Umar, who is married recently, says he is ready to take up the charge.
“I never wanted to get involved in any scandal, but I got,” he said while commenting on his routine catch up with issues.
“To avoid such situations, I even limit my activities.”
