While stars like Umar Akmal were unable to perform in the previous seasons of Pakistan Super League with Lahore Qalandars, the current sublime form of Umar Akmal makes it a forgotten matter of the past.
Quetta Gladiators fans were unhappy when the draft of Umar Akmal announced for their team. However, the talented batsman proved everyone wrong while scoring 75 in the first match against Peshawar while winning the match and also the Man of the Match award.
In today’s match against Multan Sultans, the sublime form of Umar Akmal continued where he remained not out alongside his partner Rilee Rossouw. Both of them together put a final nail in the coffin of Sultans while chasing down a total of 161.
PSL fans, and especially the Lahore Qalandar followers would remember the poor performance by Umar Akmal in the previous editions of PSL. While he had to receive a lot of criticism over his poor form, he managed to come back stronger.
2018 remained a nightmare for Pakistani young talent where he was unable to score with Lahore Qalandars and also stayed out of the National Team due to the poor form.
Now, however, he looks in a pretty massive form of his career and might even make it to the final 15 of Pakistani Cricket Team for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
