TEAMS

Kamran Akmal may well be the most emphatic proof of cricket's changed priorities post Adam Gilchrist. Sides now search for an explosive batsman who can change a day, an innings, a phase with the bat and so long as you can identify right wicketkeeping glove from left, the place is yours.

There has been little doubt about Akmal's batting. The purity of his drives and the strength of his cutting and pulling, particularly on slower subcontinent surfaces, has always held a strong allure. And when it comes together as it did one January morning in Karachi against India - one of the Test innings of that decade - he makes it in the side as a batsman alone.

But his glovework, which began so promisingly when he effectively ended the dogfight between Rashid Latif and Moin Khan in late 2004, has deteriorated alarmingly and few Pakistan matches are complete without a clumsy Akmal error.

It wasn't always thus, for he was good when he began, good enough to impress Ian Healy. But non-stop cricket in all three formats have let technical errors creep in and critics and experts have long pushed for the need for him to take a break.

To quality spin, he is often as lost as the batsmen and Danish Kaneria, over the years, has suffered in particular. In a string of error-ridden performances, the one nobody will forget will be the four dropped catches (and a missed run-out) in the Sydney Test of 2009-10, which allowed Australia to escape with a remarkable, traumatic win. Against this the memory of his Karachi hundred will always battle, with no clear winner ever likely to emerge. The tryst with controversy does his cause no good, with his refusal to accept his demotion from the side in the aftermath of a disastrous Sydney Test in 2009, eliciting a harsh fine and a disciplinary probation from the PCB.

Kamran Akmal PROFILE

Kamran Akmal after Moin Khan and Rashid Latif is the next talented wicket-keeper and right-hand batman of Pakistan. He made his first-class debut at the age of 15 in 1998 as a useful wicket-keeper and a hard-hitting opening batsman for Pakistan (A) that earned him his first international cap against Zimbabwe. Kamran Akmal has made 2648 runs in 53 Test matches with the help of six centuries, during in 137 ODIs, he has scored 2924 runs and holds five centuries in which his first century was against India in Mohali. Initially, he was always chosen as an option in the absence of the regular keepers but with the Moin’s retirement and Latif out of contention, Akmal has become a full-fledged member of the team. His batting style is the purity of his drives and the strength of his cutting and pulling, mainly on slower subcontinent surfaces, Akmal always held a strong tempt. The first, at Lahore, was the fastest Test hundred by a wicketkeeper. The second, on a seaming first day green-top at Karachi, not only saved Pakistan from the depths of 39 for 6, eventually leading to a thumping win, but is unlikely to be forgotten by anyone who saw it.

With good start of career Kamran Akmal experienced a big horrendously lean patch, against New Zealand his performance started detouring negatively and after dropping so many catches, technical errors creep in and critics and experts have long pushed for the need for him to take a break and he also failed to maintain his place and position in Pakistan’s national cricket team after playing a good international cricket. Recently he has been seen as a critic among various channels during World Cup series, criticizing several batman and bowlers poor performances. He has defended his brother over the higher officials of Pakistan cricket allegation on him. Seeking his fair batting skills, Pakistan cricket officials might be selecting him for PAKvsZimbabwe series.

There is no any chance of come back again in the squad of Pakistan but Kamran Akaml is the only opener in Pakistan who can bat with good strike rate. I especially like his pull shot.

When Kamran Akmal played as an opener I really like his batting because every time he played some lovely shots but due to the average wicket keeping he couldn’t make his career long.
