I don't know about yesterday or tom...but today Kami is doing his job!
We are in 2013 not 1960 where keepers are picked only for keeping and in Kamran case, one excellent catch in a year.
Couldn't agree more. We are not in 1960s and Pakistan in 2012 still does not have a 'proven' wicket keeper within domestic cricket who can keep and bat. In fact we do not even have a keeper who can keep let alone bat as well.
All we have is broken options. One is playing for Pakistan. Will you moan n groan. I am enjoying the game. That is all that is to me. A game of cricket. There is a winner and a loser. Entertainment. Enjoy it!
You havent seen many keepers then and biased to the extreme level.
Please do name the other 'proven' keeper/batsman in Pakistan.
Also PP you know your like my brother but I get it. Must suck....Gul is performing...Malik is performing even sad as it is...Akmal is even holding onto the catches. hmmm
Sarfaraz Nawaz and Adnan akmal in intl scenes.
And Rizwan in domestic scene.
You win! I am going to sleep..
Good night. Sleep well.
Kamran! Kamran! Kamran! Kamran!!!
KingOfDoosra you might as well say something as well :-d
You beat me to it. You keep liking the posts so I thought you might as well say something :-d
Wonderful glovework by Kamran, he was under a lot of pressure. Faced a lot of critics: Ramiz Raja
Ramiz Raja was reading Passionate Pakistani's posts, I think.
I know why you support him. You are one big regionalist. Have some shame, its about Pakistan not Lahore.
He has a good history of liking posts........
ROFL! How can a big fan of Junaid, Gul, Afridi, Malik, YK, Ajmal etc. be a regionalist?
Good for you...
Yeah save ya @$$ by saying iam a big fan of ajmal,yk etc.
You said it yaself.
Also you are contradicting yaself, in the same thread you said he is finished and also defending his inclusion in team.
I think we were talking about his batting, weren't we?
this keeps going from bad to worse...
Either you want him or dont want him.
Either you are a male or a female.
You seem to be at middle in both cases.
I am just having fun...for two reasons.
1. When Pakistan starts playing. I will support the team and always remain optimistic. long as the match is on going...I am supporting everyone within the team regardless I like them or not.
2. All I had said within this thread was...long as the keeper does his job keeping I am fine. So he has done that today so I am happy.
His keeping has been good.
His batting has been bad.
Do whatever you want with him.
Firstly, Kamran didn't do something extraordinary. It's a sign of how bad he is that we're commenting on him DOING HIS JOB!
Secondly, he just slogs brainlessly. I get Afridi doing it because man has power, clears boundaries and is a proven hitter. Is that true for Kamran?
Last, check his average this year.
And as for the catches and stumpings, is that NOT HIS JOB? Are we celebrating a player taking a catch?
Kamran kept very well today in fairness. However this should be an end to the "no keeper in Pakistan can bat like Kamran" hype.
65 now, dropped Ashwin today
Saeed Ajmal to Ashwin, no run, tough chance missed, that was a tossed up delivery from Ajmal, dipped on Ashwin, who got a thick outside edge, strikes Akmal on the pads
And yes, I SAW it live, did not just copy it from Cricinfo, I've seen other keepers catch these sort of catches,
Yes truthseer. We are celebrating because its Kamran Akmal who took a great catch.
he can not bat down the order he is an opener he has to be used as an opener
i think job of keeper has changed a lot in recent years now we see every team has a keeper who r v gud batsmen i think only pak bn struggling to find a compact one arnt thr any other talented wktkeeper batsmen in domestic circuit or we have to rely on akmaal brothers
We should ask Umar to try the gloves so that we can try another batsman instead.
Excellent keeping by him again.... :shrug
Was it to high?
Yeah it was A NO BALL as well.
LMAO. I'm not defending him.
So let's see, Kami missed a runout, made :yk drop a catch and got a duck
Kamran Akmal tour of india:
Catches/Stumpings : 7 from 5 games
Runs : 6 from 4 games didn't bat in the 1st odi
More takes than runs. Now why'd we bring him in for Sarfraz? Surely, Sarfraz wasn't dropping stuff. Oh wait, he scored more runs in Asia Cup. Can't be batting.
Can Kami bowl? KingOfDoosra Pakistaniboy
