Kamran Akmal may receive a come back call for Bangladesh Series

Sources within the PCB have confirmed that Pakistan’s, out of favour wicket-keeper Kamran Akmal, may receive a come-back call for the Bangladesh series after being cleared by the PCB last week.

Sources further added that the current PCB chiarman, Zaka Ashraf, has given a clean chit to Kamran Akmal and now the wicket-keeper can be considered for national selection.

Earlier, Kamran Akmal was dropped from the national side not only because of his poor run but also on alleged involvement in the match-fixing scandal that resulted in ban and jail-term for three Pakistani cricketers: Mohammad Aamir, Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif.

“Kamran has now also been cleared on the integrity form and given that he has regularly been playing domestic cricket and performing pretty consistently, he is now in line to be considered for the one ODI and one Twenty20 against Bangladesh later this month in Lahore,” another source confirmed.

The 30-year-old, who has played 53 Tests, 137 One-Day Internationals and 38 Twenty20 internationals has not been cleared by the Board to be considered for selection to the national team since after the World Cup.
