Kamran Akmal Dropped The ‘Match’ In PSL Final And The Internet Did Not Spare Him For That!

The PSL Final in Karachi, one of fondest memories which will be relived in the city for years, saw Islamabad United be crowned as champions for the second time. A tough fought encounter saw Faheem Ashraf score the winning six of the match, after Asif Ali had already killed Peshawar’s dreams.

Kamran Akmal, the man who arguably got Peshawar Zalmi into the final single-handed, failed to show up in the big game with the bat, and sadly, the gloves too. Islamabad United’s Ronchi destroyed Zalmi’s bowling attack, giving them no hope. However, after his dismissal, the middle order somewhat collapsed, and the match was finally in a twist.

With 29 runs needed on 33 balls and only 4 wickets left, the moment of the match happened. Asif Ali top edged an Umaid ball, which was chased by the keeper, Kamran Akmal. Out of position and not his catch, Kamran Akmal misjudged the ball and dropped the catch, and also the match. The internet was watching and as you know, they never forgive a mistake. After that, Asif Ali went on to score 26 runs off just 6 balls, hitting 4 sixes.

This is how the internet reacted to Kamran Akmal dropping Asif Ali’s catch

And the list could have gone on and on and on and on, but deep inside our hearts, we all love Kami bhai! Peshawar and cricket fans need to realize that Kamran Akmal made Zalmi reach the final, as he also won the golden bat for highest runs scored in the tournament. However, it is safe to say, Kamran Akmal will not be ‘catching’ sleep anytime soon!
