The Akmal brothers were a vital part of the Pakistan cricket team for quite a long time, however, they have now fallen out of favor with the selectors.
Umar Akmal was the first Pakistani batter to score a debut century in both Test and ODI cricket away from home, and he was also the second Pakistani after Fawad Alam to score a Test century on debut away from home.
Kamran Akmal has represented Pakistan in 53 Test matches and scored 2,648 runs at an average of 30.79 including six centuries and 12 half-centuries.
