Kamran Akmal recently celebrated his 38th birthday and the experienced campaigner was flooded with a plethora of good wishes from the cricket fraternity. With fans and cricketers alike uniting in wishing the wicketkeeper-batter on his special day, Mohammad Hafeez also penned a tweet for his longtime teammate.
Hafeez expressed admiration for the services of Akmal to Pakistan cricket but was met by a heckler, who claimed the all-rounder was making a political statement. Hafeez then proceeded to give a befitting reply to the person in question by focusing on Akmal’s stellar numbers in international cricket.
Akmal possesses the most number of dismissals completed behind the stumps for any Pakistani wicketkeeper and has racked up 6,871 runs in international cricket. Alluding to these facts, Hafeez thus reiterated his opinion of Akmal being one of the finest wicketkeeper-batsmen ever produced by Pakistan.
