Umar Akmal is playing for an IPL spot

by Gaurav Sethi

Hauritz to Umar Akmal, FOUR, fourth boundary for Akmal of Hauritz this over, again tossed up wide outside the off stump and swings it high in the air and on the bounce to midwicket fence.

Hauritz to Umar Akmal, FOUR, flighted delivery outside the off stump and he is down on one knee and swings it high over midwicket and one bounce to the fence, wonderful strike.

Hauritz to Umar Akmal, FOUR, too short and too wide, quickly on the back foot and cuts hard behind point for another boundary.

Hauritz to Umar Akmal, FOUR, tossed up outside the off stump and Akmal drives it well through extra cover and to the fence for a boundary, gets off the mark in style.

That's 16 of the first 6 balls faced. I would've put it in my own words but no friggin cable. Life is hard. Your cable shouldn't be. As I write, or rather, as cricinfo types, it's 20 of 7. How far will Shane Warne go for this royal kid?

IPL or no IPL , this kid has attitude ! i like ! on another note , hope OZ get the thramming of their life what with everything happening out there ...though knowing both teams , anything could still happen ;-)

Pak had a rare start, missed a chance to bat oz outta the game; still they should win this if their bowlers stay fit.

Wonder if he keeps too?

Umar will surely be a hot candidate who will rake in the Moolah along with Afridi and Asif
@ NC
the way he drops catches ( read sitters) it would be best if he doesn't keep :)

Aditya, seeing as he was on everybody's fantasy team, should do well in reality too.

As for drops, like brother, like brother
