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:
- Saeed Anwar
- Babar Azam
- Mohammad Hafeez
- Umar Akmal
- Shoaib Malik
- Shahid Afridi
- Abdul Razzaq
- Kamran Akmal
- Wasim Akram
- Shoaib Akhtar
- Saqlain Mushtaq
