Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal has claimed that he is hurt and heartbroken after being excluded from the squad once again.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced the squad for the T20I series against Bangladesh yesterday and Kamran Akmal was once again left out.
The 38-year-old showed his disapproval on Twitter and said:

Pakistan will face-off against Bangladesh on home soil later this month. This series is especially important for Pakistan as they have only won 1 T20I from last 10 matches.
