Renowned and controversial Pakistani cricketer Umar Akmal continues to remain in the news. Ironically, he is in the news for all the needless and avoidable reasons. After being involved in petty fights with cinema owners and alleged fights with teammates, Akmal is at it yet again.
With the much followed IPL final underway, Akmal thought of having a go at the limelight by tweeting about the result. It was the David Warner led Sunrisers Hyderabad which ended up winning the IPL. It was a scintillating final, where’s Warner’s side choked the batting heavy Royal Challengers Bangalore to register a win by 8 runs.
Post the result, Akmal tweeted and in his tweet congratulated David Warner for winning the title. But it was here, where Akmal’s common sense seemed to go for a complete walk in the garden! In his tweet, Akmal congratulated Warner, but did so for winning the Pakistan Super League 2016 (PSL). It was a sheer display of being imprudent and Akmal led the way once again. Akmal’s infamous antics are definitely not going to help him in getting his spot back in the Pakistani side.

Sunrisers Hyderabad’s mentors were simply over the moon with the tournament win and seemed delighted. “Warner is leading from the front. Today even under pressure, when Gayle and Kohli were batting, he was calm and encouraged the bowlers and allowed them to bowl to their plans and that’s what you want from a captain. We are fortunate to have him. Every single player, be it junior or the senior is very important for us and that’s why it was great to part of the SRH family,” said VVS Laxman.
“They (the team) deserve to be off the chains and we will sing the team song again tonight. We will make sure everyone in the side knows the words to the team song,” said coach Tom Moody.
