Kamran Akmal hits Pakistans highest T20 score ever

Kamran Akmal PSL ZALMI

LAHORE: Pakistan wicket-keeper cum batsman Kamran Akmal, who is in sublime form, has yet again knocked the doors of the selectors after registering unbeaten 150 runs during a National T20 Cup match.

Akmal just took 71 balls to register the highest ever T20 score by a Pakistan batsman. He smacked 14 boundaries and a dozen sixes during the entertaining knock.

The record was held by Mukhtar Ahmed who scored 123 against Karachi Whites in 2015.

Akmal also became the third batsman in T20 history after Virender Sehwag and Hamilton Masakadza to score five 50-plus scores in consecutive innings.

On the other hand, his partner former captain Salman Butt, who is also in the good nick, yet again smashed unbeaten 55 to guide the team total to 209 without losing a wicket in 20 overs.

All Islamabad bowlers were looking helpless in front of the two openers of Lahore Whites. They all conceded over 9 runs in an over.

Now Islamabad need just over 10 runs in an over to chase the mammoth 210 runs target.
