After the retirement of iconic all-rounder Abdul Razzaq, Pakistan struggled massively to produce a similar cricketer. Despite trying many players, the investment didn’t pay the dividend. Even Faheem Ashraf, who debuted in ICC Champions Trophy 2017 tournament, was given 2 long years to make his name, but he failed to impress the selectors and thus got dropped from the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 event.
Recently, Pakistan’s wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal decided to join the debate as he answered a question while interacting with fans on his official Twitter handle. Responding to a comparison question concerning Faheem Ashraf and Aamer Yamin, the 37-year old picked neither and urged both of them to go to Abdul Razzaq and learn the secrets of trade.
The Lahore born is of the view that both cricketers are filled with talent, but they need the right kind of guidance to make their mark on the biggest stage. Moreover, the belligerent player who hasn’t given up on his dream of playing for Pakistan again expressed his disappointment to see the national team standing on brink of elimination from the ongoing cricket gala in England and Wales.
