Pakistani wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal never justified his talent in the International cricket, but it is hardly the case when it comes to domestic circuit. Particularly, the highly admired Pakistan Super League (PSL) usually sees the best of him and the start to PSL 2020 wasn’t any different.
Responding to a difficult chase of 201 runs against Karachi, Peshawar lost key wickets of Tom Banton and Haider Ali early. However, Kamran Akmal kept his cool and fired under pressure. Producing a quick fire innings of 43 runs, the hard-hitting batsman consumed 26 balls to strike 5 fours and 2 sixes.
However, he was eventually dismissed by Cameron Delport as his attempt to increase Peshawar’s run-rate was halted. After him, Liam Dawson. Darren Sammy and Liam Livingstone tried hard to damage Karachi but the quality of Kings didn’t allow it to happen as Peshawar lost the game by 10 runs. While Kamran didn’t play a match changing innings, it was a great effort on his part to revive Peshawar’s innings after the early blows.
