Umar Akmal; A batting talent crushed under trolls

Umar Akmal; A batting talent wasted

Umar Akmal; A batting talent wasted

Unquestionably, Pakistan Cricket Team lacks a consistent batting line-up – no sufficient openers, no mid-over batsmen, no hard-hitters, no finishers. At least, a few of the openers can be considered but the team heavily relies on Babar Azam for their batting. It looks like the team loses confidence once he is gone and the crowd loses hope.

Hunting for an opening batter, and a hard-hitter of the ball, the Pakistan Cricket is struggling and back-to-back inconsistencies have been part of their batting. There used to be a couple of such as Kamran Akmal, Umar Akmal, and Shahid Afridi but the experienced hitters are either no more parts or have been crushed under fate.

Umar Akmal’s batting is praisable as he is the one with aggressive tricks with his bat. Unfortunately, the player was banned from Pakistan Cricket for not disclosing the fixing offers. A few slams him while a very minimum number of people still support him.

There have been many cricketers who have been given chances in international cricket despite their illegal involvements and cricket-related-politics. But it looks like Umar’s case has been exaggerated by the PCB.

He is what the team needs right now. Have a look at his eye-catching boundaries that Pakistan Cricket lacks.

He was banned for three-years when Quetta Gladiators were to lock horns with Islamabad United in the opening match of PSL 5. However, the ban was later cut short to eighteen months involving the time that he had already spent in punishment.

Too much trolling can cause someone’s life. Here comes the writer’s opinion that if Englishmen can really have a sound grip on the Urdu language. English is in no way related to cricketing performances. Umar, who is a batsman, should be limited to his actual talent is cricket is never an English speaking competition.

It feels like he is a talent wasted. As many other cricketers from past and present were processed to rehabilitation after their ban, Umar’s case should have been handled wisely rather than exaggerating it aggressively.

An English batsman would never be caring enough if he would have been trolled for his poor Urdu speaking skills. For him, what would have mattered is his cricket skills. It is time for people to stop trolling the one who gave many memories in terms of hitting the ball hard to no batsman is doing nowadays in Pakistan Cricket. The trolling level is rising to a limitless extent and a person having children, the family would be going with several traumas seeing against him all over social media.


The family members can also be wearied with the boundless and senseless humourous material throughout. Dragging it onward might be cautious as many life-taking flashes have been spotted as souls with weak hearts or tolerating criticism and poke too much have given up on themselves.
