Kamran Akmal Sets a New PSL Record

Peshawar Zalmi’s wicket-keeper batsman, Kamran Akmal, has become the first player to score 1,500 runs in Pakistan Super League (PSL) history.

The right-handed opener got there in 53 innings at an average of 29.86 with 3 centuries and 9 fifties. Akmal has played all PSL seasons for Peshawar Zalmi mainly because he has been a true match-winner for his franchise.

The 38-year-old crossed the 1,500 runs mark earlier today in the match against Islamabad United. He scored 37 runs from 21 balls to set his team on the path of victory.
