Following a quiet start to his PSL 4 campaign, Peshawar Zalmi’s experienced campaigner Kamran Akmal has come into his own, racking up 3 half-centuries in the last 5 games. Peaking at the right time, the 37-year-old has been at his finest, exhibiting his unabated aggression through pristine striking.
The veteran player unleashed another magnificent knock against Islamabad United in the all-important eliminator, entertaining the Karachi crowd with his majestic strokes. Getting into his attacking mode right at the start, Akmal demolished all hopes of an Islamabad fightback, smashing 10 fours and 3 sixes in his 43-ball 74.
Forging a mammoth 135-run stand with opening partner Imam-ul-Haq, Akmal’s lightning-paced innings set the platform for Zalmi to post an insurmountable total. The highest run-scorer in PSL history, Akmal will be pivotal to Zalmi’s cause in the final versus Quetta Gladiators.
