Bio

Umar Akmal is only 24 years old but already the wicketkeeper-batsman has made more than 100 one-day international appearances.

The younger brother of Kamran, Akmal played his first ODI in August 2009 and quickly made an impact on the international scene, scoring an unbeaten 102 in his third match.

His maiden Test came later the same year and Akmal has since played 16 five-day matches, with his last in September 2011. 

No stranger to the ICC Cricket World Cup, Akmal played alongside his brother in the 2011 tournament, accumulating 240 runs throughout the tournament at an average of 48.
