The birthday boy, Umar Akmal might be celebrating his birthday and we wish him a happy birthday but let’s just not forget that he has destroyed his own career in multiple ways.
He is the most controversial player in Pakistan Cricket Team, whether it is his dance parties controversies or fights with traffic wardens. On June 22, 2011, it was the time when Umar Akmal’s abstruse start when he served with a show-cause notice for violating the code of conduct clause on media interview, and from that day till now there is no betterment in his inclination.
In recent times on 16 August 2017, another altercation came when he accused in a press conference that Pakistan team head coach Mickey Arthur abuse him in front of chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq at National Cricket Academy. But later on, Mickey Arthur repudiate all these accusations.
Taking His Fitness Level Lightly:
Day by Day his inclination is getting atrocious, after all these controversies his inclination has not amended. Several times the Pakistan Selection committee called him for fitness test but every-time he fails to pass the test.
Performance for the National Team:
He played his last ODI Match on, Jan 26, 2017, vs Australia. After that match, he never gets selected. And on another side, his performance was getting inadequate day by day. In recent time, in a domestic tournament, Pakistan Cup, Umar Akmal just scored 72 runs in 5 matches, which was not a criterion. Don’t know whether it is bad luck or his inclination, whatever it is but one thing that is clear it is not good for Umar Akmal. He should work on his fitness, and try to galvanize the selection committee through his performances. But at this time, there is no place of Umar Akmal in the team.
Pakistan Cricket Team is well balanced and shining bedazzling. And if his inclination doesn’t get changed, then there is no place for him in future because Pakistan team Coach Mickey Arthur explained it several times that if you want to be in the team, performance isn’t the only thing good behaviour and fitness is the necessity, otherwise no place in the team! Wish, Umar Akmal understands these things and start making good decisions in life. Otherwise only these controversies will be in his fate!
