Leave millions of leagues for Pakistan‘s domestic cricket Omar Akmal. Pakistani cricketer Umar Akmal has claimed that he gave up millions of leagues for Pakistan’s domestic cricket.
While talking in a podcast, the host referred to various statements of Kamran Akmal and asked Umar Akmal that as Kamran Akmal has made it clear in his interviews that Babar Azam and the selection committee were behind his non-selection. Do you agree with this statement because of some personal problems?
In response, Umar Akmal said that you can know from different media houses how many big contracts I have left for Pakistan. I always had the same attitude that I had to play for Pakistan. Have to play.
Umar Akmal claimed that I gave up valuable offers like Big Bash and BPL for Pakistan cricket. At that time, I was given offers of 100,000 dollars, i.e. crores of Pakistani rupees, and 80,000 dollars for the season. I went but I was told that you have to play domestic for Pakistan so that the new boys can learn from you that Umar also gave up his big contracts for Pakistan. Is?
Umar Akmal said in his brother’s statement regarding Babar Azam and the selection committee that I have also heard the statements of Kamran Akmal, he did what he thought was best, and now I will do what I think is best.
Umar Akmal, Ahmed Shahzad, and Sharjeel could not be part of any team
Aggressive batsmen Umar Akmal, Ahmed Shahzad, and Sharjeel Khan were not included in their team by any franchise for the ninth edition of the Pakistan Super League.
The player’s draft ceremony of PSL 9 was held in Lahore and was attended by franchise owners, Chairman PCB Management Committee Zaka Ashraf, cricketers, and coaches among others.
All 6 franchises participating in the event selected players from different categories and completed their 18-member squads. Ahmed Shehzad who performed well in domestic cricket this season could not join any team in PSL this time as well.
