Kamran Akmal

Full name Kamran Akmal

Born January 13, 1982, Lahore, Punjab

Current age 24 years 111 days

Major teams Pakistan, Lahore, National Bank of Pakistan

Batting style Right-hand bat

Fielding position Wicketkeeper

Kamran Akmal began his career at the age of 15 as a wicketkeeper and a hard-hitting opening batsman. . A string of good performances earned him a spot for Pakistan A in 2002, and after impressing against Sri Lanka A he won selection for the Zimbabwe tour in preference to the veteran Moin Khan. From October 2004, with Latif out of favour and Moin no longer at his peak, Akmal became Pakistan's first-choice wicketkeeper and the performance he gave was brilliant with the gloves in Australia that winter despite enduring criticism at home and calls for the return of Moin and Latif. He reflected brilliant performance in ODIs as opener and two from the lower-middle order in Tests against India and England. The first Test century secured the Mohali Test while the second, a sweltering knock, came in Pakistan's forceful, series-sealing win at Lahore. This definitely confirmed him as Pakistan's number one, as well as establishing him as among the brightest young talents in the world game.
