    As a person I'm fond of kamran but I reck this potenial recall will be disastrous, especially if he also takes the gloves

    When did we become so unforgiving as a nation?

    A drop catch here and there and everyone forgets who you are.

    He dropped a catch 6 years ago guys, he didn't kill anyone, get over it.

    Like it or not he's an honest hardworking lad like anyone of us. He's not a had haram.

    A lot of the haters right now will be the same ones pinning their hopes on him to give Pakistan a rollicking start when India sets us 170+ to chase after ending Anwar Ali's career.

    Kami will be the hope of the entire qom.

    He's one cut shot away from getting back to form only if Shahid head and shoulders opens with him.

    Never say never.

    Hafeez is 35 and he is in line for WC 2019. Malik is 34 he is in line for WC 2019.
    K. Akmal is 34 why can't he play in 2019 ?

    Kamran is 1000 times better than Khurram Manzoor. Can hit 4s easily, rotate strike reasonably well. Must be brought back for T20 WC 2016. Atleast he will make 20-25 runs each match as opener.

    He got more than three chances in the PSL. He failed in all of them besides three.

    He looks like a three chance wonder.

    It's weird seeing you post that word in support of a Pakistani player lol, I understand that you've always been a big fan of Big Kami but part of me also feels your love affair with him is to wind up PPers and go against the grain when it comes to the general consensus that Kamran should never play for the international team again

    I guess Shehzad & Kamran are the ideal limited overs openers for you at the moment. To be honest there isn't much left either after Sharjeel's trouble and Azhar's (soon to be) exit.

    you know what the problem is.

    If he doesn't perform this time, he will cry and blame PCB for not selecting him and all, but he will not see that he is still making the same mistakes.

    After this thread, Kamran did get 3 chances, and he did nothing. So where does that leave him?

    I think everyone of us know that this comeback won't be different like last time, but if he doesnt accept responsibility of his poor performance this time, then why should PCB take blame?

    I haven't hidden the fact that I have always had a soft spot for Kamran because he has played two of the finest Test innings for Pakistan in the last 15-20 years, both against India. Rescuing the team from 39-6 on a green-top to win the series and bat all day on day 5 against Kumble in India to save a match. It really doesn't get better than that. Not to mention he was a key player for Pakistan in the World T20s back when we were a top T20 team (2007, 2009, 2010).

    It might be too late, but I would love to see him have a late resurgence at the international level like Malik. With Sharjeel, Latif and Azhar pretty out of the picture in Limited Overs, it would be great to see if Kamran can give us a couple of solid years before hanging his boots after the 2019 World Cup or the World T20 2020.

    Both deserve it. They have looked superior to their competition in this tournament, and both have done really well this domestic season outside the PSL as well. Considering the fact that Sharjeel and Latif will be banned soon and Azhar will get eventually get dropped from the ODI team, we can do a lot worse than Shehzad and Kamran.

    Yes that is a problem, but it is not a strong enough excuse to not select him. The difference this time is that he is having a brilliant domestic season. He talked up his batting before the PSL and how he is ready to perform and we thought it was hot air, but he walked the talk by top scoring in the PSL, when most people predicted that he will fail because he will not be able to cope with the pressure of a high-profile tournament with better quality than the other domestic tournaments. When someone is talking a good game and backing it up with performances, he should be picked.

    This reminds of 2010-2011, when Malik was out of the team but was doing very well in domestic cricket. He was in great form and was imploring with the selectors to select him for the World Cup because he can make a difference in Asian conditions. In hindsight, he really could have done a better job than someone like Younis. Kamran might fail again, but IMO, he deserves another go.

    Kamran doesn't have the fitness or age to help him bat for a long time the way he does and rely on those reflex's to muscle the ball, it has been said already that in his prime the man was inconsistent as it is; at this stage playing at the international level is another ball game altogether. Malik has a good work ethic and he's always been a bit of a touch and go player and the fitness is exceptional to so he has managed to combine all these aspects to perform well, that to under a stable line up where his role has been defined.

    However, no denying that as of late in domestic cricket Kamran is having arguably his best season in terms of the numbers; what we can expect from him even at his best is inconsistency, so it's where you draw the line when it comes to the trade offs; inconsistency and a veteran who has been there before hold him back when others can be invested in given they ought to hang around a lot longer.

    Kamran Akmal's comeback is inevitable after tonight, but just as inevitable will be his failure.

    He won't be able to feast on juicy full tosses from kids like Usman Shinwari and Usama Mir as he did tonight, or Ravi Bopara's medium paced pies at international level.

    Look at what happened the last time fans were clamouring for his recall after a good domestic run. When he returned to the ODI team in 2012-13 he averaged 16 from 17 matches ! In his last stint in T20Is, he averaged 14 !

    So these domestic performances must be taken with a pinch of salt when we all know he'll be exposed at international level.

    We can't keep selecting players on the basis of what they did 10 years ago !

    I don't understand fans saying we need to build for 2019 WC and in the same breath demand the return of 35 year olds like Kamran Akmal. The sooner we dispense with the likes of Malik, Akmal bros, Hafeez etc the better.

    Spot on.

    I got sick and tired of debating laughable posters who kept saying ''he deserves it''. He deserves nothing, he's back to these rubbish performances THAT HE HAS HAD SINCE HIS CAREER STARTED.

    I am playing well. Just give me three chances as an opener and if I fail to deliver, then I will have no complaints even if Iíll be dropped permanently
    The selectors should have taken Kamran's advice.

    I think he should be treated respectfully. PCB, and waqar to blame for destroying careers of Akmal brothers. I watched his interview and can't believe, waqar demoted Umar Akmal in Asia cup 2014 game after he scored 100 against Pak. Waqar may be ATG, but Kami was no less had he been treated fairly! Its shame how PCB destroyed careers of all three brothers.

    Many people say that Kami dropped many catches, I can't believe this. He might have dropped only 20-30 catches in his international career, but people have hyped up a lot. And who don't drop catches. If our bowlers, are deadly, then they should be creating more chances not 1/2 chances in an entire test match, and then blame the poor Kami for everything. Cant our bowlers get batsman bowled/lbw or anything else. Why only to get flying edges [because our bowlers were tame that batsman try to whack them, and only in few scenarios, those whacks become thick edges for WK to take]

    In addition, to that Kami carried the burden of our batting for so long. That even till today we don't have free flowing opening batsman. I am impressed by Kami interview, when someone asked, if he is not selected for CT 2017, did he think its a big loss? And he replied, whose loss will that be if they don't select him in CT? Pak cricket or him.



    I also don't understand criticism of S Akhtar against him in 2011 WC. First catch was for first slip, not for K Akmal to take, and second he might have missed, because he wanted to be proactive in field.

    And I am 100% sure, Mickey Arthur also played a big role in not selecting Akmal brothers. Because he feared that his favorite his players like Shadab Khan, Hafeez, and Mohammad Amir will be dropped for Akmal Brothers. And what wrong Khurram Manor did? Why he is not selected for International teams.

    And I feel really sad for Sohail Tanvir, he should play up the order, he is a very good hitter.

    My XI:

    Kamran Akmal
    Khurram Manzoor
    Umar Akmal (C)
    Babar Azam
    Fawad Alam
    Adnan Akmal
    Sohail Tanvir

    Before I begin replying to all that what you've written I personally think that either you're Kamran Akmal himself, one of the two other Akmal brothers or a misguided Lahori but if you've neither one of these then I just feel sorry that there are people with the ability & coherence to use a computer/smartphone who are also genuine supporters of Kamran Akmal. Let's begin answering shall we?

    Firstly, he has been treated way over by the PCB than the respect he actually 'deserves'. A career spanning 268 matches across 15 YEARS I believe is a testament to that even though he's been totally GARBAGE all throughout his career.
    You give reference to Umer Akmal's 100 - well brother! hate to break it to you that was #1 Against Afghanistan who were a proper minnow back in 2014 and #2 He was dropped earlier in his Innings (attempting that same tailenderish hoick that he so famously does ever game).

    After that only he capitalized and score a century that too finishing exactly on 100 at the last ball of the innings (Noob Achievement). Umar hasn't scored a century after this and it remains his only valid contribution in his career which has spanned 8+ years Internationally as well.

    Waqar may be ATG, but Kami was no less had he been treated fairly! Its shame how PCB destroyed careers of all three brothers.
    Waqar may be an ATG?? I am sorry did you just question one of the finest bowlers to ever grace this planet as 'maybe an ATG??' The guy mastered the art of reverse swing at pace better than the likes of Wasim and Imran at an age when most young men are trying to find meaning in life.

    In comparison Kamran Akmal will only be remembered for his dropped catches and his match fixing allegations - That's the legacy of your hero and the Akmal Family

    Many people say that Kami dropped many catches, I can't believe this. He might have dropped only 20-30 catches in his international career, but people have hyped up a lot. And who don't drop catches. If our bowlers, are deadly, then they should be creating more chances not 1/2 chances in an entire test match, and then blame the poor Kami for everything. Cant our bowlers get batsman bowled/lbw or anything else. Why only to get flying edges [because our bowlers were tame that batsman try to whack them, and only in few scenarios, those whacks become thick edges for WK to take]
    Let me take the pleasure of destroying this argument left, right and center! Here is a list of all the catches dropped by Kamran Akmal since only 2006 [remember his career started in 2002, 4 YEARS EARLIER]

    63.2 Collingwood was on 79(Final Score = 186)
    Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, gone, out, no! Dropped! Leg-cutter, outside edge straight to Kamran Akmal ? dreadful shot from Collingwood I might add ? and, somehow, Akmal shelled it. Deafening silence from the captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, and not much more being said from the slips. Ooh, that?s a shocker
    
    2) http://www.espncricinfo.com/engvpak/engine/match/225257.html?innings=1;view=commentary
    38.2 Collingwood was on 21(Final Score = 31)
    Shahid Nazir to Collingwood, no run, yikes, Collingwood hangs his bat out to dry ? good away-swing from Shahid again ? but it passes his outside edge. Nevertheless, Akmal somehow drops a clanger and the ball bobbles from his gloves

    5.4 ME Trescothick was on 7(Final Score = 58)
    Umar Gul to Trescothick, no run, DROPPED, Kamran Akmal has dropped him. A terrific ball from Gul rising on Trescothick who feathers an edge. Gul goes up to celebrate but Akmal, with iron gloves, clangs a sitter

    36.1 KP Pietersen was on 15 (Final Score = 96)
    Danish Kaneria to Pietersen, no run, oooh, outside edge and dropped. Snorter of a delivery, Pietersen's caught in two minds, and Akmal can't hold on to the feather. Kaneria's just not having the luck today.

    83.1 DBL Powell was on 1 (Final Score = 1)
    Umar Gul to Powell, no run, DROPPED! good length delivery wide outside the off stump, pitches and moves away, comes forward and feels for it, gets the edge to the right of Akmal, who dives across and puts down the catch.

    63.3 Ramdin was on 10 (Final Score = 25*)
    Abdul Razzaq to Ramdin, no run, Dropped! fraction short on the off stump, swinging away nicely, Ramdin moves back to defend, gets squared up by the outswinger, thick edge and Akmal dives to his right and fails to catch.

    17.2 AG Prince was on 2 (Final Score = 2)
    Mohammad Sami to Prince, no run, ooh, dropped by Akmal. That was a long way across Prince, who slashes a thick edge through and it pops in and out of Akmal's gloves at chest height. What a costly miss that could be - Prince has been in such good form

    22.3 Gibbs was on 2 (Final Score = 2)
    Danish Kaneria to Gibbs, no run, ooh! Edge again - but dropped. Kaneria sent the ball bending back in at the right hander, taking the edge and spilled again by Akmal. Good bowling, this

    70.1 Kallis was on 63 (Final Score = 91)
    Danish Kaneria to Kallis, no run, oh no - has Akmal dropped yet another one? Ooh, not sure - Kallis went chasing that one and seemed to feather it through to Akmal who drops it. But the replays are inconclusive. Akmal's having a poor match anyway.

    Mohammad Hafeez to Boucher, no run, Akmal drops another one! tossed up and this one turned back in sharply, Boucher defends on the back-foot and the ball clips the inside edge and goes behind but Akmal fails to hold on to a fairly easy chance. He is clearly having a tough time out there

    55.6 Tendulkar was on 28 (Final Score = 82)
    Mohammad Sami to Tendulkar, 1 run, dropped by Akmal. Not a surprise, actually. Only surprise is he usually catches Tendulkar. It was banged in short, outside off stump, Tendulkar decides late to go for a upper cut, doesn't connect properly and Akmal thrusts his right glove out but fails to hold on and ends up palming it behind him.

    Saeed Ajmal to Mathews, no run, dropped, Akmal spills it, spun back in but not as much as Mathews expected, played inside the line while trying to defend, got a thin edge but Akmal could not pouch it, tried again at the second attempt but failed.

    52.6 Hussey Was on 27 (Final Score = 134)
    Danish Kaneria to Hussey, no run, trying playing defensively from the crease, Hussey's beaten by a ball that rips past the outside edge of his upright bat Subsquent replays suggest this may have been a dropped catch by Kamran Akmal. If it was it only got the faintest edge from Hussey's bat. Oh yes, definitely an edge looking at it from front-on.

    Mohammad Amir to Strauss, no run, 136.0 kph, dropped! Kamran, what have you done? Perfect outswinger from Aamer, Strauss edges and Akmal puts down the simplest of chances. Kamran kept so well against Australia - relatively speaking, anyway - but this is the worst possible start for him against England

    Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, 142.1 kph, oh no! Kamran has gone from hero back to zero! Dropped! After just pulling off a stunner he's put Collingwood down first ball, it was wide, Collingwood flashed a cut and edges it towards first slip, Akmal flew across and dropped the chance

    Mohammad Asif to Prior, 4 leg byes, 128.9 kph, and that one's dropped, but a very tough chance for Kamran. You can't expect him to take that - it's an inside edge onto the thigh and then sneaking past the stumps, Kamran dives and just gets his left fingertip to the ball as it runs away towards fine leg for a boundary
    Steve Davis has called that leg byes, but there was an inside edge on it, no question

He then threw a big dive with outstretched left hand but couldn't hold on. Replays don't confirm an edge. It seems it went off the thigh.

    Shahid Afridi to Nasir Hossain, no run, beaten as Afridi slowed it up, the conventional legspinner, Nasir played at it and got a thin edge that was dropped by Kamran Akmal, sharp chance put down

    0.6 Amla was on 2 (Final score = 6)
    Raza Hasan to Amla, no run, dropped, Kamran's let Amla off. Amla tried to whack the ball inside out over the off side once again and edged it, fairly routine chance and Akmal fails to hold on. Amla was well out of his crease, could have been stumped as well
    
    92) Mohammad Irfan to de Villiers, 1 wide, another one down the leg side and is called a wide. But there was some interest by the bowler. It did take a faint nick, but wouldnt have mattered as Kamran didn't take it cleanly
    
    93) Saeed Ajmal to Amla, no run, beautifully bowled! How did that miss the stumps! It was tossed up outside off, it dipped in very quickly as Amla went for the drive and squeezes between the bat and pad, goes over the stumps. A stumping chance missed too as Akmal gets surprised by that too..It hits him on his chest
    
    94) Mohammad Irfan to Iqbal, no run, dropped!Iqbal goes feeling for the cut outside off, nicked through to the keeper and Kamran shells it diving low to his right, not an easy catch but he should be taking that

    9.6 Finch was on 34 (Final Score = 65 )
    Saeed Ajmal to Finch, no run, another doosra and I cannot understand how that has missed off stump! Tentative push from Finch, who had not picked it and is lucky to survive as the ball bounces right over the off bail and thuds into the keeper's gloves and promptly falls out. There was an outside edge too Ajmal throws a forlorn look back as Pakistan drop a crucial catch.

    11.2 Pollard was on 2 (Final Score = 14)
    Shadab Khan to Pollard, 1 run, Dropped! Kamran shells it at backward point. Why is he fielding at backward point? Shadab could have had 4 for 3. Tossed-up legbreak, turns away just outside off, Pollard swishes and skews it to the right of Kamran. He was painfully slow to react. Dives late to his right but can't close his fingers around the ball. It pops out. It looks ugly. Pakistan could have had Babar, Shehzad or Malik at backward point

    16.1 Powell was on 16 (Final Score = 23)
    Imad Wasim to Powell, no run, dropped! And the pressure should have brought a wicket. Akmal spills a simple chance at mid-off. That's a bit village. Powell used his feet, drove in the air, and it was straight at him
    Since 2006 Kamran Akmal has dropped 97 catches/stumpings/rounout chances in TOTAL and due to these drops Pakistan concieded 2475 RUNS extra across 93 innings. In the same period Kamran has played 194 innings (all formats) and scored 4654 runs. Lets now do some simple maths again.

    (a) If we minus out the runs conceided due to his 97 drops his batting Average drops to 11.xx per game (all formats included)
    (b) 93 drops across 194 innings (half of his careers stats only) means that he has a 50% of dropping a catch per game and a 100% of shelling an opportunity every second game!
    (c) In short he scores 11 runs per game (on aveage) and shells a chance every game. (ATG INDEED!)

    In addition, to that Kami carried the burden of our batting for so long. That even till today we don't have free flowing opening batsman. I am impressed by Kami interview, when someone asked, if he is not selected for CT 2017, did he think its a big loss? And he replied, whose loss will that be if they don't select him in CT? Pak cricket or him.

    I also don't understand criticism of S Akhtar against him in 2011 WC. First catch was for first slip, not for K Akmal to take, and second he might have missed, because he wanted to be proactive in field.
    It wasn't anyone's loss rather it was a blessing for Pakistan, Pakistani Awam and for cricket lovers in general. Kamran Akmal should never have played cricket for Pakistan or should've ceased to play any games post 2010 Sydney debacle which to this very day is a test match marred with controversy and allegations of spot fixing.

    I hope all this information helps you understand the damage he has done to Pakistan Cricket.

    P.S. If mods allow I can forward you the links to all the dropped catches and the online compilation that people have done on this 'ATG' wicket keeper!

Let's begin answering shall we?



    Firstly, he has been treated way over by the PCB than the respect he actually 'deserves'. A career spanning 268 matches across 15 YEARS I believe is a testament to that even though he's been totally GARBAGE all throughout his career.
    You give reference to Umer Akmal's 100 - well brother! hate to break it to you that was #1 Against Afghanistan who were a proper minnow back in 2014 and #2 He was dropped earlier in his Innings (attempting that same tailenderish hoick that he so famously does ever game).

    After that only he capitalized and score a century that too finishing exactly on 100 at the last ball of the innings (Noob Achievement). Umar hasn't scored a century after this and it remains his only valid contribution in his career which has spanned 8+ years Internationally as well.



    Waqar may be an ATG?? I am sorry did you just question one of the finest bowlers to ever grace this planet as 'maybe an ATG??' The guy mastered the art of reverse swing at pace better than the likes of Wasim and Imran at an age when most young men are trying to find meaning in life.

    In comparison Kamran Akmal will only be remembered for his dropped catches and his match fixing allegations - That's the legacy of your hero and the Akmal Family



    Let me take the pleasure of destroying this argument left, right and center! Here is a list of all the catches dropped by Kamran Akmal since only 2006 [remember his career started in 2002, 4 YEARS EARLIER]

    63.2 Collingwood was on 79(Final Score = 186)
    Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, gone, out, no! Dropped! Leg-cutter, outside edge straight to Kamran Akmal ? dreadful shot from Collingwood I might add ? and, somehow, Akmal shelled it. Deafening silence from the captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, and not much more being said from the slips. Ooh, that?s a shocker

    38.2 Collingwood was on 21(Final Score = 31)
    Shahid Nazir to Collingwood, no run, yikes, Collingwood hangs his bat out to dry ? good away-swing from Shahid again ? but it passes his outside edge. Nevertheless, Akmal somehow drops a clanger and the ball bobbles from his gloves

    Umar Gul to Trescothick, no run, DROPPED, Kamran Akmal has dropped him. A terrific ball from Gul rising on Trescothick who feathers an edge. Gul goes up to celebrate but Akmal, with iron gloves, clangs a sitter

    Danish Kaneria to Pietersen, no run, oooh, outside edge and dropped. Snorter of a delivery, Pietersen's caught in two minds, and Akmal can't hold on to the feather. Kaneria's just not having the luck today.

    Mohammad Sami to Prince, no run, ooh, dropped by Akmal. That was a long way across Prince, who slashes a thick edge through and it pops in and out of Akmal's gloves at chest height. What a costly miss that could be - Prince has been in such good form

    Danish Kaneria to Kallis, no run, oh no - has Akmal dropped yet another one? Ooh, not sure - Kallis went chasing that one and seemed to feather it through to Akmal who drops it. But the replays are inconclusive. Akmal's having a poor match anyway.

    55.6 Tendulkar was on 28 (Final Score = 82)
    Mohammad Sami to Tendulkar, 1 run, dropped by Akmal. Not a surprise, actually. Only surprise is he usually catches Tendulkar. It was banged in short, outside off stump, Tendulkar decides late to go for a upper cut, doesn't connect properly and Akmal thrusts his right glove out but fails to hold on and ends up palming it behind him.

    Danish Kaneria to Hussey, no run, trying playing defensively from the crease, Hussey's beaten by a ball that rips past the outside edge of his upright bat Subsquent replays suggest this may have been a dropped catch by Kamran Akmal. If it was it only got the faintest edge from Hussey's bat. Oh yes, definitely an edge looking at it from front-on.

    Mohammad Asif to Prior, 4 leg byes, 128.9 kph, and that one's dropped, but a very tough chance for Kamran. You can't expect him to take that - it's an inside edge onto the thigh and then sneaking past the stumps, Kamran dives and just gets his left fingertip to the ball as it runs away towards fine leg for a boundary
    Steve Davis has called that leg byes, but there was an inside edge on it, no question

Rehman sees him and fires it wide, Sanga misses and is halfway down the track. Kamran whips the bails off. Find the missing link - yes, Kamran did not collect. I now know the only weak link in Pakistan's side. It is behind the stumps.

It cut across from the leg stump line, went right across the batsman who was squared-up in defense. the ball flew to left of Akmal, who was initially moving to his right. He then threw a big dive with outstretched left hand but couldn't hold on. Replays don't confirm an edge. It seems it went off the thigh.

Tossed-up legbreak, turns away just outside off, Pollard swishes and skews it to the right of Kamran. He was painfully slow to react. Dives late to his right but can't close his fingers around the ball. It pops out. It looks ugly. Pakistan could have had Babar, Shehzad or Malik at backward point

    16.1 Powell was on 16 (Final Score = 23)
    Imad Wasim to Powell, no run, dropped! And the pressure should have brought a wicket. Akmal spills a simple chance at mid-off. That's a bit village. Powell used his feet, drove in the air, and it was straight at him
    Since 2006 Kamran Akmal has dropped 97 catches/stumpings/rounout chances in TOTAL and due to these drops Pakistan concieded 2475 RUNS extra across 93 innings. In the same period Kamran has played 194 innings (all formats) and scored 4654 runs. Lets now do some simple maths again.

    (a) If we minus out the runs conceided due to his 97 drops his batting Average drops to 11.xx per game (all formats included)
    (b) 93 drops across 194 innings (half of his careers stats only) means that he has a 50% of dropping a catch per game and a 100% of shelling an opportunity every second game!
    (c) In short he scores 11 runs per game (on aveage) and shells a chance every game. (ATG INDEED!)



    It wasn't anyone's loss rather it was a blessing for Pakistan, Pakistani Awam and for cricket lovers in general. Kamran Akmal should never have played cricket for Pakistan or should've ceased to play any games post 2010 Sydney debacle which to this very day is a test match marred with controversy and allegations of spot fixing.

    I hope all this information helps you understand the damage he has done to Pakistan Cricket.

    P.S. If mods allow I can forward you the links to all the dropped catches and the online compilation that people have done on this 'ATG' wicket keeper!
    Uhmm relax he was being sarcastic. Terrific post though.

    Sick and tired of Kami, but if we must waste an opening slot on him or Shezzy in T20s, I'd rather take Akmal. Akmal is either a passenger or a decent contributor, Shezzy has a genuinely detrimental gear in him.

Its shame how PCB destroyed careers of all three brothers.

    Many people say that Kami dropped many catches, I can't believe this. He might have dropped only 20-30 catches in his international career, but people have hyped up a lot. And who don't drop catches. If our bowlers, are deadly, then they should be creating more chances not 1/2 chances in an entire test match, and then blame the poor Kami for everything. Cant our bowlers get batsman bowled/lbw or anything else. Why only to get flying edges [because our bowlers were tame that batsman try to whack them, and only in few scenarios, those whacks become thick edges for WK to take]

    In addition, to that Kami carried the burden of our batting for so long. That even till today we don't have free flowing opening batsman. I am impressed by Kami interview, when someone asked, if he is not selected for CT 2017, did he think its a big loss? And he replied, whose loss will that be if they don't select him in CT? Pak cricket or him.



    I also don't understand criticism of S Akhtar against him in 2011 WC. First catch was for first slip, not for K Akmal to take, and second he might have missed, because he wanted to be proactive in field.
    Finally, someone who understands the Akmals like I do

    The funny thing is, if you listen to the Akmals, they have deluded themselves into thinking this is all actually true!

    The Akmal brothers see themselves as Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King - the men who suffered greatly in the pursuit of justice

    Its kind of upsetting to see TTF getting opportunities to play the PSL whereas new younger players don't.

    This is media XI.

    Now people will say Hafeez is also backed by media. That's TRUE. But at least ,he is better than TTF's (somehow because of chucking , scoring runs against mediocre sides, or just luckily scoring runs in all - important games)

    Kami has been in great form and should be in the Pakistan's LOI squads. We have all seen 'young' and 'emerging' talent.lol
    Our batting talents have been flops. Even Hafeez and Malik have failed big time. Kami should be in the team replacing Malik.

    What a performance by Kamran in PSL today. He should be definitely selected as opener in T20 internationals. Can't keep this guy out anymore. He deserves atleast 3 chances if not more.

    People wont see it bro. They have short term memory loss. They see a good innings and want to include the player. They see a bad innings they want to exclude the player. No concept of context or history whatsoever.
