KARACHI:-

Ousted Pakistan wicketkeeper, Kamran Akmal has blamed the national selectors and Pakistan team management for spoiling the career of his younger brother, Umar Akmal. Kamran said he was not happy that those who make team decisions had persisted with Umar as a wicketkeeper in T20 and ODI matches. "It is not fair because Umar was not keen to take on this dual role as he is primarily a batsman not a keeper," said Kamran, who has been sidelined by the selectors from the Test side since 2010 and the ODI side since last year.

Kamran, 32, said the dual role given to his brother had affected his game and his batting had suffered. –Agencies
