Unusual record for Umar Akmal in T20s
Umar Akmal

Dubai: Pakistan and Lahore Qalandars’ middle order batsman Umar Akmal sets a unique record of scoring most number of ducks in T20 cricket.

In the sixth match of PSL 2017, Umar got caught in the slips by Muhammad Hafeez on a nought against young Zalmi’s pacer Hassan Ali to set a record which no player would ever wish to dream.

The 26-year old has played 203 international and domestic cricket innings and this is the 24th time he got out without bothering the scorers.

The youngest of the Akmal brothers has broken the previous record set by West Indies’ player Dwayne Smith, South Africa’s Herschelle Gibbs and Sri Lanka’s Tillakaratne Dilshan who got out on zero 23 times in the T20s.
