One probably has to date back to Imtiaz Ahmed in the early 50s to find a Pakistani wicket-keeper who doubled up as an accomplished batsman. In Moin Khan and Rashid Latif, Kamran Akmal’s much-rotated predecessors, Pakistan too followed the sport-wide trend of specialists behind the stumps with average batting ability. The arrival of Adam Gilchrist bucked the trend, and Kamran became Pakistan’s own wicket-keeper batsman. Still, doubts are often raised over Akmal’s ability with the glove, in contrast to his assured batting prowess. It rightly indicates towards Akmal primarily being a batsman who was later augmented to a glove-man.
