The Drop machine - Kamran Akmal | A Look at the Chances Missed by him Since 2006


We must first pay tribute to the man who made it all possible – the Maharajah of Missed Chances, the Don Corleone of Dropped Catches, the Earl of Err, the Pharaoh of Fumble, Lance Corporal Granite Hands himself, Kamran Akmal.

Let us count his Dropped catches and Missed Stumping (13 July 2006 onwards ODIs, T20s and Tests).




Pakistan in England Test Series - 1st Test
England v Pakistan


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




Pakistan in England Test Series - 3rd Test
England v Pakistan


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



Pakistan in England Test Series - 4th Test
England v Pakistan


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.



West Indies in Pakistan Test Series - 3rd Test
Pakistan v West Indies


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.



Pakistan in South Africa Test Series - 2nd Test
South Africa v Pakistan


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.

103.1 MV Boucher was on 27 (Final Score = 46)
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

117.3 MV Boucher was on 44 (Final Score = 46)
Danish Kaneria to Boucher, 2 runs, cuts and gets an edge, DROPPED! by Akmal, who lets another chance go by

Pakistan in India Test Series - 2nd Test
India v Pakistan

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.



Sri Lanka in Pakistan Test Series - 2nd Test
Pakistan v Sri Lanka

Australia v Pakistan


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.

62.2 Hussey Was on 45 (Final Score = 134)
Danish Kaneria to Hussey, no run, dropped, defensively forward, inside edge onto pad, through to the keeper who spills it

England v Pakistan


4.3 AJ Strauss was on 15 (Final Score = 45)
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

22.4 Collingwood was on 0 (Final Score = 1)
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



Pakistan in England Test Series - 3rd Test
England v Pakistan


37.3 MJ Prior was on 29 (Final Score = 84*)
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



Pakistan in England Test Series - 4th Test
England v Pakistan


115.3 Broad was on 132 (Final Score = 169)
Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, 94.6 kph, dropped a beauty...he played forward again and it grazes the outside edge but Kamran Akmal can't hold on. There was very little reaction from the players

Looks like it, according to the replays


6.6 Trescothick was on 6 (Final Score = 6)
Shoaib Akhtar to Trescothick, no run, good length ball on off, Tresco stands tall and drives but makes zero contact, a tight over coming to and end, should have had Bell but Akmal dropped another catch to add to his summer's tally of non-takes

38.3 Lara was on 28 (Final Score = 37)

4.2 Kapugedera was on 19 (Final Score 20)
Mohammad Asif to Kapugedera, 1 run, dropped! He chases a short delivery outside off stump, gets the nick, and Akmal drops a simple take behind the stumps...poor stuff from him


South Africa in Pakistan ODI Series - 3rd ODI


22.3 Smith was on 24 (Final Score = 48)
Shahid Afridi to Smith, no run, dropped by Akmal. It was a googly outside off stump, Smith stabbed at it and edged it to Akmal who fails to hold on. The ball pops up and it falls between a lunging Akmal and Younis at first slip.


32.1 Smith was on 48 (Final Score = 48)
Abdur Rehman to Smith, 1 run, dropped,though it was tough. Tossed up wide, Smith gets across off and plays at it, getting a thick edge which Akmal doesnt read, and the ball clips his pad to run fine


South Africa in Pakistan ODI Series - 4th ODI


29.2 Pollock was on 61 (Final Score = 90)

South Africa in Pakistan ODI Series - 5th ODI


2.3 Kallia was on 6 (Final Score = 86)
Shoaib Akhtar to Kallis, no run, dropped, Akmal drops an absolute sitter, this one was a touch fuller, it pitched on a good length and drew Kallis forward, the ball kissed the outside edge and flew at an easy height straight to Akmal who couldn't take it cleanly, Kallis has had a poor ODI series so far and Pakistan could have had him cheaply once again



Pakistan in India ODI Series - 1st ODI


6.1 Gambhir was on 7 (Final Score = 44)

Pakistan in India ODI Series - 3rd ODI


0.1 Ganguly was on 0 (Final Score = 39)
Shoaib Akhtar to Ganguly, no run, Dropped! Would you believe it? Kamran Akmal drops a regulation 'keeper catch. It was full in length, outside off stump and Ganguly had a poke at it with an open-face of the bat. Sure, the ball was dipping as it went to the left of Akmal but he should have held it. What a start. Hold your mails. We know many of you don't rate Akmal much.



Bangladesh in Pakistan ODI Series - 2nd ODI


32.5 Mahmudullah was on 14 (Final Score = 58*)

33.5 Abdur Razzak was on 0 (Final Score = 26*)
Umar Gul to Abdur Razzak, FOUR, Dropped by Akmal. well he didn't even reach it. He should have as it wasn't too far to his left. Gul had produced a jab and a edge wit ha delivery that straightened outside off stump from round the stumps and Akmal was late in reacting

Shahid Afridi to Kandamby, no run, dropped, quicker ball that spun away sharply after landing on the off stump, tries to defend off the back foot, gets a thick outside edge and Akmal puts it down behind the wickets. Straightforward



Sri Lanka in Pakistan ODI Series - 3rd ODI


40.4 Kndamby was on 28 (Final Score = 32)
Shoaib Malik to Kandamby, no run, missed stumping, Pakistan have been poor, flighted outside off inviting Kandamby out of the crease, he goes for a loft over extra cover but the ball spins away, he misses and so does Kamran Akmal who makes a mess of it behind the stumps

ICC Champions Trophy - 6th match, Group A



22.3 Dhoni was on 0 (Final Score = 3)
Saeed Ajmal to Dhoni, no run, Dropped by Akmal. Tough chance. T'was a topspinner outside off stump, Dhoni tries to cover drive, edges and it deflects to Akmal's right pad



Asia Cup - 4th match

36.6 Sharma was on 9 (Final Score = 22)
Shoaib Akhtar to Sharma, 1 run, all night Akmal has been appealing without any edges, now he gets a regulation edge and he drops it! Poor keeping really! Beats me how this man is keeping in international cricket! Sharma goes chasing, edged away slightly wide of him, he sticks out one firm hand and it bounces off it. Really didn't have to go too far


Asia Cup - 1st match



2.5 Dilshan was on 12 (Final Score = 18)
Shoaib Akhtar to Dilshan, FOUR, Edged between the keeper and the first slip. It pitched well ahead of the cordon and rolled away. It was around 145 kmph back-of-length delivery and Dilshan went for the cut and edged. Kamran dived but couldn't reach in time


8.4 Jayawardene was on 0 (Final Score = 54)
Mohammad Asif to Jayawardene, FOUR, Edged but Kamran couldn't get to it. It was a lovely leg cutter around off - a classic Asif delivery - and Mahela had a lame poke at it,. Almost fatal. The gap between the keeper and slip was wide and Kamran dived but couldn't reach


41.2 Kulasekara was on 5 (Final Score = 14)
Shahid Afridi to Kulasekara, 1 wide, Stumping chance missed. Not a surprise if you have followed Kamran's career. It was down the leg side and Kula had leaned forward to flick and lost balance and had stepped well out of the crease. But Kamran doesn't collect it cleanly. Oh well


Asia Cup - 5th match


43.2 Shkib ul Hassan was on 2 (Final Score = 25)
Abdur Rehman to Shakib Al Hasan, 3 runs, thank God for some constants in life! Kamran Akmal has dropped one! Difficult edge, though, a thick one and a decent deflection. But thankfully some things never change



NatWest Series [Pakistan in England] - 3rd ODI


18.5 Yardy was on 0 (Final Score = 4)
Umar Gul to Yardy, 1 run, Kamran Akmal drops it! Calamity Kamran strikes again! Gul finds a thickish outside edge that goes low and wide to Kamran, diving one-handed to his left and he couldn't quite hold on. Looks to have damaged his finger as well



Pakistan in New Zealand ODI Series - 5th ODI


44.1 NL McCullum was on 4 (Final Score = 14)
Wahab Riaz to NL McCullum, 1 run, somethings in Pakistan cricket never change. Like the fact that inevitably, Kamran Akmal will drop a catch. He's done it again. Short ball, Nathan gets a top edge behind his head and it was a dolly for Kamran who was moving back. And he put it down.




ICC Cricket World Cup - 10th match, Group A


30.1 Sangakkara was on 22 (Final Score = 49)
Abdur Rehman to Sangakkara, 5 wides, Kamran fluffs a stumping, all is well with the world, Rehman beat Sanga with some flight, and angling it down the leg side, he got some extra bounce again, which beat Kamran totally, Sanga was in no position to get back


34.6 Sangakkara was on 33 (Final Score = 49)
Abdur Rehman to Sangakkara, 1 wide, Kamran, oh Kamran. Another fluffed stumping. Same as before, Sanga jumps out a mile looking to flick. 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.



ICC Cricket World Cup - 17th match, Group A


3.1 Gunasekera was on 8 (Final Score = 8)
Umar Gul to Gunasekera, no run, dropped by Kamran or did it go off the back thigh? 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.



ICC Cricket World Cup - 24th match, Group A



13.2 Taylor was on 0 (Final Score = 131*)
Shoaib Akhtar to Taylor, FOUR, Ross gets a birthday gift, it's the Kamran moment, Shoaib got the edge with a perfect delivery that zipped away just a shade, the ball flew between younis and Kamran, who initially appeared to go for it, and then did the keeper's version of shouldering arms, stood stone still, as a bemused Younis looked on



13.4 Taylor was on 8 (Final Score = 131*)
Shoaib Akhtar to Taylor, no run, oh I don't believe this, two birthday gifts is too much, from the same man too, Shoaib has Ross pushing at a one that held its line,and the healthy edge goes ever so slowly to Kamran who is in good position to take it, gets gloves on it, and clangs it, Shoaib can't do anything about it, boy is he distraught


30.4 Styris was on 4 (Final Score = 28)
Shahid Afridi to Styris, 1 run, another drop from Kamran, outside off, Styris looks to stab it from the crease, edged and Kamran's horror day continues, Afridi is not amused




Pakistan Vs England, Trent Bridge, 2010.
63)http://www.espncricinfo.com/england-...iew=commentary
70.2 Collingwood was on 48(Final Score = 82)

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, missed stumping! Kamran's really not having a good day... Collingwood charged down the track, was beaten in the air and by the turn. He was practically walking off he was so far down, but Kamran fumbled the take, and couldn't pick the ball up before the batsman got back in. Kaneria really needed that wicket - Pakistan needed it!



Pakistan Vs England, Oval, 2006.
64)http://www.espncricinfo.com/engvpak/...iew=commentary
40.3 Mahmood was on 0 (Final Score = 15)

Danish Kaneria to Mahmood, 4 byes, ah, should have been out. Mahmood came down the wicket aiming to hoick that over mid-on; instead he completely missed it and should have been stumped by yards but Akmal didn’t even move and the ball flew past his gloves really easily



Pakistan in South Africa Test Series - 2nd Test
65) http://www.espncricinfo.com/rsavpak/...iew=commentary
40.4 Prince was on 17 (Final Score = 22)

Danish Kaneria to Prince, no run, stumping chance missed! A lovely teasing flighted delivery, again Prince comes down the track and is beaten by the flight and the dip. The ball threads through the bat and pad gap and is just outside off stump and Akmal clangs it. Would have been definitely out had he gathered.



Sri Lanka in Pakistan ODI Series - 2nd ODI
66) http://www.espncricinfo.com/pakvsl/e...iew=commentary
34.2 Jayawardena was on 5 (Final Score = 24)

Shahid Afridi to Jayawardene, no run, went through him! Kept low there, pitched on a good length outside off, just fractionally wide of the off stump, and spun away, Mahela failed to get his bat down in time and the ball clipped his back pad on the way to the keeper. Replays indicate there was an inside edge, but a really tough chance there for the keeper.

67) http://www.espncricinfo.com/pakvwi/e...iew=commentary

Pakistan in India Test Series - 3rd Test
68) http://www.espncricinfo.com/indvpak/...iew=commentary
118.6 Pathan was on 23 (Final Score = 102)

Danish Kaneria to Pathan, no run, fullish and outside the off, played at with hard hands, the ball slips past bat, the reactions from Akmal, who gloves the ball to the floor, and the bowler, suggest that there might have been an edge to that



Pakistan in Australia Test Series - 1st Test
69) http://www.espncricinfo.com/ausvpak0...iew=commentary
74.6 Ponting was on 30 (Final Score = 57)

Mohammad Asif to Ponting, no run, forward with bat and pad to a good delivery that nips through the batsman's defence, if he nicked it it was of no consequence since Kamran Akmal failed to take it cleanly
Replays suggest Ponting probably got an inside edge. So perhaps we can put that one down as a drop to Kamran Akmal.



NatWest Series [Pakistan in England] - 2nd ODI
70) http://www.espncricinfo.com/england-...iew=commentary
40.6 Morgan was on 1 (Final Score = 16)

Mohammad Hafeez to Morgan, no run, edged, and dropped by Kamran! It was a really thick edge and a big deflection as Morgan tried to cut, the keeper did well to even get a glove to that



Bangladesh in Pakistan ODI Series - 5th ODI
71) http://www.espncricinfo.com/pakvbdes...iew=commentary
25.3 Dhiman Gosh was on 21 (Final Score = 29)

ICC World Twenty20 2007 - 1st semi final

77) http://www.espncricinfo.com/twenty20...iew=commentary
19.6 Taylor was on 36 (Final Score = 37*)

Mohammad Asif to Taylor, 1 run, low full toss pulled high in the air off the bottom of the bat and that's a poor piece of keeping from Akmal who calls for it... and then fluffs it. That may be amusing, but let's hope for his sake that it doesn't come down to a run...




ICC World Twenty20 2009 - 1st semi final

78) http://www.espncricinfo.com/wt202009...iew=commentary
8.2 AB de Villiers ws on 1 (Final Score = 1)

Shahid Afridi to de Villiers, no run, dropped by Akmal. Lovely ripping leg break turning from the off stump line, AB pushed hard at it, got the thick edge and Akmal couldn't hold on to slightly difficult chance




ICC World Twenty20 2010 - 4th match, Group A

79) http://www.espncricinfo.com/world-tw...iew=commentary
6.5 Mohammad Ashraful was on 11 (Final Score = 65)

Abdul Razzaq to Mohammad Ashraful, FOUR, educated edge just wide of the keeper Akmal, who put a surprisingly low-key effort. A big dive was possibly in order, but it ran away for four

80) http://www.espncricinfo.com/world-tw...iew=commentary
7.1 Shakib Al Hasan was on 7 (Final Score = 47)

Mohammad Hafeez to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, was that a drop from Kamran? short of a length, Shakib can't connect with the flick but possibly got a thick inside edge, and Kamran put it down

81) http://www.espncricinfo.com/world-tw...iew=commentary
15.4 Mahmudullah was on 0 (Final Score = 0)

Mohammad Sami to Mahmudullah, no run, dropped by Kamran Akmal! Thickish inside edge that darted in, and Kamran had to regroup and dive to his left. In the end, he did well to stop what would have been a sure four




ICC World Twenty20 2010 - 21st match, Group E

82) http://www.espncricinfo.com/world-tw...iew=commentary
14.2 AB de Villiers was on 34 (Final Score = 53)

Abdur Rehman to de Villiers, no run, goes for the sweep shot, it bounces over the middle stump line and Akmal doesn't collect it cleanly. Was there an edge? The replays aren't conclusive. BAd angles basically



Pakistan in England T20I Series - 1st T20I

83) http://www.espncricinfo.com/england-...iew=commentary
12.2 Yardy was on 13 (Final Score = 35)

Saeed Ajmal to Yardy, 2 runs, dropped by Kamran, tough chance as it flicked the edge, Kamran didn't even get a hand on it, it just flicked the edge and went off his knee




Pakistan in South Africa Test Series - 3rd Test

84) http://www.espncricinfo.com/rsavpak/...iew=commentary
62.5 Prince was on 58 (Final Score = 59)

Shahid Nazir to Prince, no run, oh no! Akmal's had a(nother) shocker there. Prince got a big inside edge and there was a regulation catch, low to his right, which slips out of his gloves while the players are busy celebrating. It's unlikely to have made a huge difference, in truth, but it won't have done Akmal's confidence, nor his reputation, any good




ICC Cricket World Cup 40th Match, Group A

85) http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc_cric...ch/433596.html
39.4 Krejza was on 0 (Final Score= 7)

Abdur Rehman to Krejza, no run, that beat everything, Akmal included. Missed stumping? Perhaps. Akmal's day had been too good to last



ICC Cricket World Cup, 1st Quarter-Final

86) http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc_cric...ch/433600.html
31.1 Chanderpaul was on 24 (Final Score = 44*)

Saeed Ajmal to Chanderpaul, no run, regulation miss of a stumping from Kamran. Zipping offie outside off, leads Chanders out and he misses the flick. Kamra had to collect and break the stumps, instead it hit his glove and thudded into his chin.



ICC Cricket World Cup - 2nd semi final

87) http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc_cric...iew=commentary
29.3 Tendulkar was on 70(Final Score = 85)

Shahid Afridi to Tendulkar, no run, Dropped again Shahid Afridi holds his head again! Dropped by Kamran. Tough chance, though. It was the leg break and Tendulkar edged his defensive push. The ball deviated a lot and Kamran couldn't move his hands to his right in time. Tough chance for Kamran's standards. How many is too many? So many lives!



88) http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc_cric...iew=commentary
41.2 Dhoni was on 24 (Final Score = 25)

Wahab Riaz to Dhoni, 1 run, edged and dropped! Kamran it is, a thick edge flies to his right, hitting the fingers and bouncing out. That was a really tough chance, there's no slip in so he's got to go for it, he stretches into the dive ... but can't hold on!


ICC World T20 - final group match, Group D

89) http://www.espncricinfo.com/pakistan...iew=commentary
31.4 Wade was on 17 (Final score = 22)

Azhar Ali to Wade, 1 wide, 83.5 kph, and Kamran misses a stumping, Wade walks out to one going down leg quickly, but Kamran fails to gather, Azhar has his hand on his face in anguish


90) http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc-worl...iew=commentary
15.5 Nassir Hossain was on 1 (Final Score = 16)

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

The one that most sticks out for me (besides the Hussey ones) was the one he dropped off Shoaib (Ganguly) in an ODI off the FIRST BALL OF THE GAME. I don't understand how you can drop the first ball unless your hands are literally bricks.

As much as I hate Sami, i've read a statistical analysis that shows his Test average would drop into the 30s had Kakmal taken all the clangers he dropped off his bowling. Lol

Much needed Thread.

We, fans seem to have short memory. A 50 or 100 from Kami and suddenly everyone will join the Kamran Akmal fan club.
The real issue is much more serious. A keeper should not be in team due to his batting abilities. Kamran i am afraid has totally lost it as a keeper.
Also with reference to drops, not only these can be expensive in terms of run but can also De-moralize the bowler and team as well.

ANYTHING else ?????

Compare these BUT'S to the dropped chances in the OP as well as his mind blowing average of 27 odd and start compiling how many matches we have lost solely because of this guy.

And what batting abilities are we talking about ? An average of 27 in a format he's supposed to thrive in ?

Not talking about you obviously, but how delusional some fans can become is just unbelievable.

I am also referring to the same point. The moment he scored a 50 or 100, all his keeping blunders would be forgotten.

Even now people are arguing that he is a match winner and has won matches for Pakistan.

Look at the first few drops in England, Collingwood took full advantage of Akmal's screw ups, and Gul has had a fair few dropped by Kami. Lol, If you look, Kami had dropped a catch off of each bowler atleast once, pathetic, drop him after WC, no need for him.

Are you serious? Gilchrist? Please don't compare him to Kami. When people mention Gilchrist, they think of how revolutionised wicket keeping, and how they have to be able to bat. When people say kami, they think of his drops. So there is a difference, and the OP has pointed it out, brilliant post.

Yes, Gilchrist was a LEGEND. He would be in most people's all time XI.

Kamran Akmal dropped 62 catches since 2006. Shocking !!

He's dropped a total of 62 catches since 2006.. that's right 62 catches aka 62 wickets that should have gone down aka FAIL!

Pakistan in England Test Series - 1st Test
England v Pakistan

1) http://www.espncricinfo.com/engvpak/...iew=commentary
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


Pakistan in England Test Series - 3rd Test
England v Pakistan

2) http://www.espncricinfo.com/engvpak/...iew=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


3) http://www.espncricinfo.com/engvpak/...iew=commentary
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


Pakistan in England Test Series - 4th Test
England v Pakistan

4) http://www.espncricinfo.com/engvpak/...iew=commentary
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.


West Indies in Pakistan Test Series - 3rd Test
Pakistan v West Indies

5) http://www.espncricinfo.com/pakvwi/e...iew=commentary
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.

6) http://www.espncricinfo.com/pakvwi/e...iew=commentary
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.


Pakistan in South Africa Test Series - 2nd Test
South Africa v Pakistan

7) http://www.espncricinfo.com/rsavpak/...iew=commentary
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

8) http://www.espncricinfo.com/rsavpak/...iew=commentary
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

9) http://www.espncricinfo.com/rsavpak/...iew=commentary
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.


10) http://www.espncricinfo.com/rsavpak/...iew=commentary
103.1 MV Boucher was on 27 (Final Score = 46)
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


11) http://www.espncricinfo.com/rsavpak/...iew=commentary
117.3 MV Boucher was on 44 (Final Score = 46)
Danish Kaneria to Boucher, 2 runs, cuts and gets an edge, DROPPED! by Akmal, who lets another chance go by






South Africa in Pakistan Test Series - 1st Test
Pakistan v South Africa

12) http://www.espncricinfo.com/pakvrsa/...iew=commentary

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

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.

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

Wahab Riaz to NL McCullum, 1 run, somethings in Pakistan cricket never change. Like the fact that inevitably, Kamran Akmal will drop a catch. He's done it again. Short ball, Nathan gets a top edge behind his head and it was a dolly for Kamran who was moving back. And he put it down.

34.6 Sangakkara was on 33 (Final Score = 49)
Abdur Rehman to Sangakkara, 1 wide, Kamran, oh Kamran. Another fluffed stumping. Same as before, Sanga jumps out a mile looking to flick. 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.

3.1 Gunasekera was on 8 (Final Score = 8)
Umar Gul to Gunasekera, no run, dropped by Kamran or did it go off the back thigh? 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.

61) http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc_cric...iew=commentary
13.4 Taylor was on 8 (Final Score = 131*)
Shoaib Akhtar to Taylor, no run, oh I don't believe this, two birthday gifts is too much, from the same man too, Shoaib has Ross pushing at a one that held its line,and the healthy edge goes ever so slowly to Kamran who is in good position to take it, gets gloves on it, and clangs it, Shoaib can't do anything about it, boy is he distraught




62) http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc_cric...iew=commentary
30.4 Styris was on 4 (Final Score = 28)
Shahid Afridi to Styris, 1 run, another drop from Kamran, outside off, Styris looks to stab it from the crease, edged and Kamran's horror day continues, Afridi is not amused

Yeah, and like others have said, these drops were often in KEY moments, causing the morale of the team to drop and giving away crucial momentum to the opposing team; therefore leading to us losing on many many occasions

The stumpings list isn't very comprehensive. Akmal missed several off Kaneria during the tour to SA and this also doesn't mention him missing Collingwood off Kaneria in the first test (2010 tour) and Sajid Mahmood off Kaneria in one of the (2006 tour) games.

Thanks to both of you for compiling the list - I'm sure your job was made a little easier since he misses more than a chance a match .

Top stuff really, thats well over 1000 runs given away and a hell of a lot of wickets lost for Kaneria, Sami and Gul. Gul especially is the kind of bowler that once he has an opening, he goes for the kill. Sami's capable of quick wickets too.

I can't believe The_Real_Desi is trying to knock you "new comers". Ignore him. Welcome to PP and please keep on posting. Akmal is probably his uncle or something.

I remember the ones in India, England, SA and the major tournaments.

p.S got evidence of my video that when Kamran was signing my Pakistan flag (only played who did) in August 2010 at Edgbaston, which was on top of a book, he actually dropped the book!

Pakistan Vs England, Trent Bridge, 2010.

70.2


Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, missed stumping! Kamran's really not having a good day... Collingwood charged down the track, was beaten in the air and by the turn. He was practically walking off he was so far down, but Kamran fumbled the take, and couldn't pick the ball up before the batsman got back in. Kaneria really needed that wicket - Pakistan needed it!

Pakistan Vs England, Oval, 2006.
Quote:
40.3


Danish Kaneria to Mahmood, 4 byes, ah, should have been out. Mahmood came down the wicket aiming to hoick that over mid-on; instead he completely missed it and should have been stumped by yards but Akmal didn’t even move and the ball flew past his gloves really easily

Also, he dropped a catch in the Asia Cup (2008?) when he was fielding out in the deep, Sarfraz was keeping that game IIRC.

get over the hate. its not worth it.
You created a list of games he has won for us.

This thread proves that he has (potentially) cost us more games than he has won, and proved your own list to be a joke in the process.

Also, quit the trolling. Its impossible for anyone to genuinely support the guy as you do. It may have been funny at first, but now its just ridiculous.

erm im not a troll for kamran. i support him and the feeling i am getting is that you guys have hatred towards this guy. also making him a scapegoat for the loss against NZ. that is wrong.

i created my thread to show support for this guy, not to prove anything else. to show pp'ers that he has single-handedly won us games.

some of you have so been incensed with kamran, that you have forgotten other factors for our loss, most notably the batting and the captaincy. thats whats ridiculous.

Abdul Razzaq to Styris, no run, driven to extra cover, an utter mix-up between the batsmen after a diving stop by Farhat at point and Akmal had to hit the stumps from about two yards away with Styris floundering to get back ... and missed

The Pakistan fielders' body language makes it clear that they are unimpressed with Akmal's miss. Styris was so far out that he could have run in and taken the bails off ... why did he throw it?

he was on 16 final score 86

No pun intended btw.

Though, that DOES remind me of Akmal dropping a catch as a specialist bat in the outfield against SA in a T20.

Will try and find it.

If you truly believe this, you are the stupidest poster on this forum.

This thread clearly proves he's lost a lot more matches for us then he's won. You're the one that seems to be so madly in love with Akmal that you can't see the truth. Give it up, bro.

on the note of stupid, you seem to be missing my point or just need explaining in a different way with pictures.

i SUPPORT this guy, he has a potential to be a match-winner. i admit he is a bad keeper, but in limited overs, he is more explosive as a BATSMAN first then a keeper.

please read my posts first before making stupid posts.

Seriously Mr. Real Deal you should just save face now.

And I have not forgotten the other reasons for the loss, Kamran is not the only thing wrong with the team, of course not!

If you read my posts in other thread you will see that I have been saying (like many others) that we are a fast bowler short, that we cannot use razzaq as a new ball or death overs bowler, and that he needs to be brought up in the batting order. These are just some of the things that need to be done. Also Ajmal needs to be brought in for Rehman as Rehman is too defensive a bowler.

All those things are problems - but i'm afraid Kamran's keeping is the biggest single issue we face today and has been for 5 years

Brilliant OP.

Not just the stumpings but also the byes he has given must be huge in number.

Drop him and send him to the national medical research centre, a human who can't catch a cold.

p.s This OP deserves the POTW award, please nominate him.

yaar he's explosive don't you understand.

His average in ODIs is 27 something. Those 27 runs scored EXPLOSIVELY can win us matches single handedly.

Moreover there's not a single player in Pakistan who can score 27 runs explosively. He's the only one.

We have to live with his dropped catches, stumpings, runouts, pathetic smile after missing a chance or getting out on 10 runs, but we cannot and should not miss his explosive batting after every 4-5 series.

Hahahah I'm with you bro.

I'm just saying to mr Real Deal that if he is so obssessed with Kamran's batting but admits he's a bad keeper (can hardly argue there) then what's his issue with having Kamran dropped as keeper.

He makes it sound like Kamran is Gilchrist and Viv Richards all rolled up into this one fine, "explosive" batsmen. He averages 27 in ODIs and what, 30 or so in Tests now? He sucks. His batting is very overrated.

He was very explosive against NZ though.. batting out maidens and all!

I don't agree with that. The most important thing for the keeper is to take the catches. He has dropped many sitters over the last few years.

Is his batting really that great?

OMG

what a list

its not about balancing runs made vs runs given
what could be more soul destroying for a bowler/team to see easy catches dropped on flat wickets and then watching the batsman go on to make hundreds...?
I really think its time to drop him
