Kamran Akmal Reveals All-Time ODI XI With Himself As Pakistan’s Greatest Keeper

Pakistan’s wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal has revealed his all-time Pakistan ODI XI and fans are having a go at it.

The elder Akmal brother has promoted Babar Azam as an opener alongside Saeed Anwar but ignored the likes of Rameez Raja and Aamir Sohail.

While there is no place for Javed Miandad, Mohammad Yousuf, and Younis Khan, Kamran has included Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik in the middle order alongside Umar Akmal and Shahid Afridi.

Pakistan produced many quality wicket-keepers in the past, including, Waseem Bari, Moin Khan, and the great Rashid Lateef. However, instead of picking from the best of the lot, Kamran thinks he’s the best wicket-keeper batsmen to have ever played for Pakistan.

Moreover, legendary leg-spinner Abdul Qadir, former Test captains Inzamam-ul-Haq, Imran Khan, and Waqar Younis, have also failed to make a spot in his dream XI.

While Kamran has included three of his family members (himself, Umar, and cousin, Babar Azam), people are asking as to why he hasn’t included Adnan Akmal – the only brother left out.

Here is Kamran Akmal’s all-time ODI XI:

  1. Saeed Anwar
  2. Babar Azam
  3. Mohammad Hafeez
  4. Umar Akmal
  5. Shoaib Malik
  6. Shahid Afridi
  7. Abdul Razzaq
  8. Kamran Akmal
  9. Wasim Akram
  10. Shoaib Akhtar
  11. Saqlain Mushtaq

  • Perfect 11 for me:

    1. Saeed Anwar
    2. Aamer Sohail (undoubtly best opening combo)
    3. Inzamam ul haq
    4. Mohammad yosuf/Javed Miandad
    5. Abdul Razzaq/Shahid Afridi
    6. Kamran Akmal(w)
    7. Imran khan(c)
    8. Wasim Akram
    9. Shoaib Akhtar
    10. Waqar younus
    11. Abdul Qadir

    *the only reason to add kamran akmal that he scored 31 first class centuries(which is most by any asian batsman) and also Pakistan have not produced any quality wicketkeeper batsman.

  • Shukar hai isny Abdul Razzaq ko rakh lia ,wrna agar saeed anwar jaldi out hojye to 100 runs ka target aj k dor main ye team kesy bachati

  • No inzi ans yousuf one of the greatest ODI batsmen… Would you think that Umar Akmal is great batsman… How Many games he won for Pakistan….

    You can just laugh on it… ?

  • This shows this rascal’s knowledge for cricket. All the names except some from same lobby that destroyed our cricket. Pakistan k liye kabi khela ho to saman aye na k which is the best XI

  • Ye shukr hai k Adnan Akmal ko b nhi select kr Liya, eski apni Xi me phr b jga bnti h,, lkn Umar Akmal, hafeez, Malik ki to blkl b nhi bnti

  • I think this would be the perfect combination
    1. Saeed Anwar
    2. Babar Azam
    3. M. Yousuf
    4. Misbah Ul Haq
    5. Inzmam Ul Haq
    6. K. Akmal (WK)
    7. Shahid Afridi
    8. Wasim Akram
    9. Saeed Ajmal
    10. Waqar Younis
    11. Saqlain Mushtaq

  • I believe selection of himself is justified purely due to batting skills, but Umar Akmal, Shoaib Malik and Hafeez ahead of Javed Miandad, Inzimam ul Haq, Younis Khan and Muhammad Yousuf is absurd.

    • I guess you haven’t seen Saleem Yousaf, Moin Khan and Rashid Latif. Even Zulqernain was far better than him. Keeping skills; all time worst.. otherwise you know what Akmal brothers have always been upto

  • 1. Saeed Anwar
    2. Babar Azam
    3. Muhammad Yousaf
    4. Inzamam Ul Haq
    5. Misbah Ul Haq
    6. Shahid Afridi
    7. Abdul Razzaq
    8. Kamran Akmal
    9. Wasim Akram
    10. Shoaib Akhtar
    11. Saqlain Mushtaq

  • What a joke he was the worst wicket keeper in. Pakistan cricket history… Akmal Brothers never played for country…

  • No doubt Ahmad Kaleem’s 11, but replacing Kamran Akmal with Wasim Bari. A team needs a specialist wicket keeper.

  • The only one missing is Adnan Akmal….no wonder he’s IQ is limited…Probably the worst middle order he could have chosen.

  • Sayeed Anwar
    Amer Sohail
    Younus Khan
    Javed Miandad (VC)
    Inzamam UL Haq
    Abdul Razzak
    Shahid Afridi
    Moin Khan (WK)
    Imran khan (C)
    Wasim Akram
    Saqlain Mushtaq

  • 1. Saeed Anwar
    2. Babar Azam
