Umar Akmal steals spotlight yet again, thanks almighty for Misbah-ul-Haq’s retirement – Watch Video on link
The 42-year-old Misbah had earlier announced that the upcoming Test series in the West Indies will be his final international assignment.
Despite trying hard in not doing anything controversial, Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal often grabs the spotlight for unwanted reasons. The 26-year-old who had earlier made headlines for his comparison with Indian skipper Virat Kohli, is now being made fun off for his comments on Misbah-ul-Haq’s decision to retire from international cricket.
The 42-year-old Misbah had earlier announced that the upcoming Test series in the West Indies will be his final international assignment. When Umar was asked by a journalist about his thoughts on the matter, the 26-year-old ended up creating another blunder.
“Sabse pehle toh main Allah ka shukriya ada karta hoon (First of all, I’d like to thank Allah),” said Umar.
From describing a cricketer’s death as “very nice”, to misbehaving with the police, to starring in ridiculous music videos, the cricketer knows how to steal the spotlight no matter how his on-field performance has been.
