'Is This A Joke', Twitterati Mocks Kamran Akmal For Winning Best Domestic Wicket-Keeper Award

Fakhar Zaman, who recently became the first Pakistan batsman to score a double century in ODI cricket, bagged the special award for his outstanding performance

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) honoured their cricketers by giving them awards for their achievements in domestic and international cricket in the 2017-18 season. The PCB awards were held in Karachi on August 8 night.

28-year-old left-handed batsman Fakhar Zaman, who recently became the first Pakistani batsman to score a double century in the One Day International cricket during the fourth ODI vs Zimbabwe, bagged a special award for his outstanding performance. Zaman also received a cash prize of PKR 2.5 million.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed, who led the team to lift the champions trophy in 2017, was awarded the Imtiaz Ahmed Spirit Award and PKR 1 million cash prize.

But what surprised the Twitterati was Kamran Akmal lifting the best wicket-keeper award in the domestic cricket.

Recently, Akmal’s bad outings behind the stumps and dropped catches have turned him into a butt of many jokes. Some called him ‘Butterfingers’ while some called him as the worst ‘wicket-keeper.’

Following Akmal’s win as the best wicket-keeper, Twitterati termed him as ‘undeserving’.

Muhammad Abbas, who bagged 27 wickets last year, won the award for the ‘Best Test Player’, while Hasan Ali won the ‘Best ODI Player’ award.

In women’s cricket, former captain Sana Mir was awarded the Best ODI Player for her 259 runs and 21 wickets
