Cricket Fans Thrash Umar Akmal For Two Consecutive Ducks

  • 4

Umar Akmal became one of the top trends on social media after being dismissed without scoring for the second time in the current T20 series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

As Umar Akmal marked his return to international cricket on Saturday, he was dismissed for a duck. Fans had not reacted much to Umar’s dismissal in the first match. However, his dismissal for a duck in the second match was not taken lightly, and resentful fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment in his batting.

Twitter is currently full of cricket fans thrashing Umar Akmal for his poor performance.

A cricketing fan took to Twitter to ‘welcome’ Umar Akmal back to international cricket.

One user taunted Umar with the cricketing rule that is generally followed by people who play casually, in which the first ball is just for warm-up.

Another user shared a post based in a view held by a considerable number of cricket fans that Misbah-ul-Haq put Umar on the team so he could show everyone that the latter is not needed anymore.

Another fan compared Umar Akmal to cricketing legend Don Bradman, who went out on a duck in his last match, and implied that this was Umar’s last match.

Some of the other posts in which the cricketer was made fun of.

Users have also poked fun at the cricketer by saying that Prime Minister Imran Khan should tax Umar Akmal like he is taxing everyone else.
