Adnan Akmal is the third brother from the Akmal family to represent Pakistan. A natural wicketkeeper who has competed with elder brother Kamran for the international Test spot, subsequently displacing him from the Test team, as his ability behind the stumps outweighed Kamran’s stronger batting.
Adnan has achieved a number of notable achievements in his short career to date, including a record eight catches against New Zealand in 2011 and playing an important role in Pakistan’s whitewash of England in the UAE in 2012. He has been dropped from the Pakistan side on two occasions, both inexplicable. The first time he was left out was after his record eight catches, the next for Pakistan’s tour of South Africa in 2013 when Sarfraz Ahmed was chosen.
Adnan has been developing his batting, playing a number of gritty knocks against England in 2012 and his keeping against Ajmal’s variations has been outstanding.
With Pakistan struggling to find a reliable wicketkeeper, barring the emergence of a truly talented wicketkeeper-batsman, Adnan was expected to regain his position in the Test side which he did in 2013 when Pakistan took on South Africa.
