Kamran Akmal Career

International career

Kamran Akmal was both a quick-scoring batsman and a wicket-keeper who has played in Test cricket for six centuries. Nevertheless, his first century, starting with Pakistan in a 109 lead over India in the first Test, ensured that the visitors would be able to enjoy the match. His 2005 debut against England made him one of the team's most important players. He is obviously a batsman who plays lower down the order, but he has also opened in restricted over formats. He has scored two centuries in ODIs against England as an opener. He played one of the finest innings in Test matches, coming in lower order. Pakistan converted Pakistan from a score of 39/6, scoring a century, to a spirited 245, which helped the team beat the match and the series.

In early 2006, his batting was extremely efficient, winning seven international hundreds in a space of six months. However, his batting form has dwindled and steadily deteriorated after his tour of England in Summer 2006. On both the England tour and a tour to South Africa in early 2007, his wicket-keeping improved and dropped several catches. In 2008, he scored his first international century on the Bangladeshi tour of Pakistan. He later suffered with some injuries and did not play for a few days, but later he was brought into the team.

Akmal was disqualified for the 2008 Asia Cup due to his bad wicketkeeping. Sarfraz Ahmed, who did well on the domestic level but also because of Sarfraz's good showing in the U-19 World Cup, he was replaced by him. Akmal was selected in the 30-man probable squad for the 2008 ICC Champions Trophy.

Akmal was a member of the Pakistan team that won the T20 World Cup in 2009. In one match against the Netherlands, he was known for his quick stumpings, dismissing 4 batsmen.

In the last five years, Akmal has scored three consecutive 6s in a row. As a result, Pakistan defeated West Indies in Abu Dhabi for the first ODI.

Akmal was called the vice-captain of the Pakistani test squad on 17 July 2010, but the Pakistani test squad was eventually suspended due to his suspected involvement in spot fixing.

Akmal was recalled for the three ODI series against Australia in August 2012.

He appeared for Peshawar Zalmi in Pakistan Super League 2017 from February to March 2017. He scored 104 runs in the 3rd Qualifying match, marking the first century in PSL 2017. Peshawar Zalmi triumphed in this match and advanced to the final of PSL for the first time.

Due to the tense atmosphere after the 2008 Mumbai attacks, he did not play in 2009.

By the Peshawar Zalmi side, Kamran was chosen ("bought") for US$70,000. In the 2016 season scoring, he had an average scoring of 151 runs, with his highest score of 45. He was retained on account of his outstanding results in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy in 2016–17. He scored 88 runs off just 48 balls in the first match of the 2017 season against Islamabad United. He lost his rhythm in the middle of the season but regained his form against the Karachi Kings in a do-or-die match that featured a century on 60 balls, securing his team's spot in the final. He was later found to be the player-of-the-match. He ended the season as the best run-scorer of the season with 353 runs and received the green cap and the Hanif Mohammad Award for best batsman, as well as the Imtiaz Ahmed award for the best wicketkeeper of the season with a total of 12 dismissals.
