There's absolutely no doubt that Umar Akmal is one of the most talented batsmen in the country. Whenever he plays well, he looks extremely pleasing to the eye.
The talented batsman from Lahore played for the Qalandars in the first three editions and now he's been traded with the Quetta Gladiators for this season.
Gladiators needed to chase 156 last night against Peshawar Zalmi and Umar Akmal smashed 75* and finished the game for his new team.
Akmal formed a significant partnership of 101 runs with the captain Sarfraz Ahmed and sealed the first victory for their franchise.
If Umar continues to perform like this in the PSL, he certainly will make life very hard for the selectors as they look to shape the team for the ICC World Cup 2019.
