WATCH: Wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal drops a sitter once again; gets roasted on Twitter

It looks like Pakistan wicket-keeper Kamran Akmal has not bettered his reputation of spilling catches over the years.

During Pakistan’s tour of Australia in 2005, Akmal dropped one sitter after another during a single Test match in Melbourne.


In fact, there are well-compiled videos of Kamran Akmal missing catches floating around social media.
The game between Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmis remains forgetful for the elder Akmal. With 50 runs required of just ten deliveries, Gladiators’ Sohail Khan top-edged one towards the wicketkeeper.

Akmal was well under the ball and looked comfortable to hold on to the skier from Sohail Khan off Hasan Ali’s bowling. Even the commentators thought Akmal held on to the catch before the visual of Imam ul Haq gathering the grounded ball surfaced.


As soon as the video went viral, netizens jumped onto the opportunity to troll their favored wicketkeeper-batsman.

Despite his shortcomings with the gloves, Akmal has mainly been vocal about not getting the opportunity to feature in the national team.

Also, he has criticized Misbah-ul-Haq and the selection committee for not favoring him to don the greens of Pakistan.
