Pakistan Wicketkeeper-Batter Kamran Akmal Announces Retirement

Islamabad: After being named to the national selection committee, veteran Pakistan wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on Tuesday.

Akmal was earlier named as the batting consultant for the Peshawar Zalmi, led by Babar Azam, for the upcoming edition of the PSL.

The 41-year-old said that he is keener on taking up managerial roles with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Akmal made his debut for Pakistan back in 2002 and went on to play until 2017. In 53 Tests, 157 ODIs and 58 T20Is, the right-handed batter scored 2648, 3236 and 987 runs respectively, with the help of 11 hundreds and 27 fifties.

He last donned the national colours in an ODI against the West Indies back in April 2017 at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.
