Umar Akmal as we all know is very much talented but at the same time e is one of those players who never played to their full potential in the team. He played some really good cricket at the start of his international career but after that, he became just an average player. In a recent TV show when Umar Akmal was asked about his performances in the lucrative leagues are much more than in the Pakistan cricket team. Umar’s reply was not a confident one. he was thinking hard and then putting up his words together.
This was a very valid question. He is a brilliant T20 player when it comes to leagues like CPL, PSL, and BPL but when it comes to playing T20 games for Pakistan the standards of his batting on any number goes down.
Umar Akmal has to think about it and there is no run away from the fact that he has successful demoted himself from being a very good batsman to a normal middle order player for the Pakistan cricket team. he is not a good finisher at all and just doesn’t follow the rules.
There s no need for him to blame the coaches because under all the coaches his performances remained the same. So clearly the fault is with him and not the coaches. He has wasted his talent by getting involved in a lot of controversies over the past many years. Every time a controversy is heard from inside the Pakistan cricket team, Umar Akmal is always a part of it.
