Just In! Umar Akmal has become the top twitter trend in Pakistan, as Pakistani Cricket fans lash out on Umar Akmal for two consecutive ducks. Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad were recalled in Pakistan Team squad for T20 series against Sri Lanka. But, it seems like this poor decision from Pakistani Cricket Board and Selection Committee headed by Misbah ul Haq has cost Pakistan this T20 Series. Sri Lanka has already claimed the T20 series with 2-0 stats, as we speak.
The Delimma of Umar Akmal and PCB
With two golden Ducks in the ongoing T20 Series against Sri Lanka, Umar Akmal fails to open his account. He faced two balls in two matches and got out on both of them. What could have been a Reincarnation of His “Cricket Career”, will now probably result in death of “it”. Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad were recalled for T20 Series against the visiting side of Sri Lanka, but both of them failed to justify their selection. Mickey Aurther once said:
Umar Akmal must earn the right to use PCB Services. He must Go and play club cricket.
Umar Akmal was involved in a series of feuds with his Head Coach Mickey Arthur. Arthur was a wise man who saw the lack of ability and morals in Umar Akmal and advised him to play Club Cricket. But, Misbah ul Haq, who has been appointed the new head coach and Chief of Selection Comittee, seems to put his weight in ” Tried and tested” failed players.
But it seems like, Umar Akmal has not learnt his lessons well. Two Golden Ducks, do not agree, with his existence he team. In fact, he have just become the top batsmen to score most ducks in T20 International. While, head Coach Misbah ul Haq was working on the re-arrival of Umar Akmal’s Career, it looks like Akmal was focused on Golden ducks.
