Pakistan cricket team’s middle order batsman Umar Akmal has said that after Allah, he has hope only from the Sharif family.

During an interview on Samaa on Monday, Umar Akmal said, “Everyone has personal connections. I am thankful to Nawaz Sharif and Chief Minister Punjab Maryam Nawaz for always giving me time.”


Umar Akmal complained, “There were some problems in my life which bothered me, I was not allowed to play cricket for a long time. The seniors in Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) are getting personal with me. I showed my performance to Maryam Nawaz and requested her to give me a chance. If I get a chance, I will make a comeback in international cricket.”

In August last year, Umar Akmal went to London to meet former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, where while talking to the media, he said that Sharif’s return will improve cricket and he has made a request that will hopefully be accepted soon.

Umar Akmal last represented Pakistan in a match against Sri Lanka in 2019.
