Happy birthday Umar ! wish you a successful year :umarakmal
Dr Khan said:Happy birthday Umar. Be careful with the back that you hurt in Australia before the last test match
“My message for Umar [Akmal] is that he needs to go back and work extremely hard in domestic cricket and make plenty of runs, because his ability is such that it deserves to be seen at the highest level of cricket. Unfortunately he’s not in the Champions Trophy squad but if he works hard in domestic cricket, he can make a comeback.”
i wonder what he was feeling when he saw Shafiq brainfart his wicket away
I'd like to know first what he felt when Shafiq scored 84 at a great strike rate in the last game and his feelings on the way Shafiq embarrassingly outperformed him in domestic cricket when both were out of favor with the selectors when it comes to the ODI team.
Shafiq took his chance and did very well; Umar bottled under the pressure of being dropped and couldn't buy a run.
Deserves to stay home for a while.
Shafiq is considered to have a stable head which is a false perception
Like him or dislike him, he will be back for Pakistan in LOIs after the retirements of Hafeez and Malik. I also think Haris Sohail does not have much more cricket in him because he's injury prone. Umar will have a lot to offer Pakistan cricket after this WC.
Happy birthday to him! I also hope his cousin Babar Azam has had a chance to wish him a blessed day and made use of interaction to gain tips from Umar on how to increase his SR.
