KARACHI: Umar Akmal is confident to make his comeback in the national team after returning to competitive cricket following the completion of his 18-months ban due to violating the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s anti-corruption code.
With his return to competitive cricket, his fans and followers are keen to see him wearing Pakistan’s shirt once again.
A Twitter user shared a couplet, wishing the strong comeback of the middle-order batsman.
