Kamran Akmal or Sarfaraz Ahmed,best for Pakistan team

Kamran Akmal and Sarfaraz Ahmed are currently out of the Pakistan squad but both are eager to make a comeback in ICC T20 WC 2020. Kamran has been ignored by the selected quite alot despite being scoring heavily in the Pakistan Super League. On the other hand the major issue with Sarfraz Ahmed is his performance and fitness but in recent times he has improved his fitness very much and also have scored few runs in PSL this year.


Kamran Akmal has represented Pakistan in 157 ODIs with an average of 26.09 and in 58 T20i with 21 runs per innings.According to the stats this looks below average for an opening batsmen and is very insufficient for him to make a comeback with this kind of stats but if we consider his recent performances he has scored quite alot of runs in domestic and also in Pakistan Super League.

He has scored 251 runs in 9 matches with an average of 27.99 and dismissed 5 batsmen with his wicket-keeping skills in PSL 2020. Kamran is all time leading runs scorer in the PSL. Main problem of him is that he always manages to scores runs in domestic and when it comes to the international arena he somehow fails to perform.Speaking of his wicket-keeping skills he currently has the record of most dismissals in international cricket after MS Dhoni.


Sarfaraz has represented Pakistan in 116 ODIs with an average just over 33 and in 58 T20i with runs over 28 per innings.He has also captained Pakistan team to the ICC Champion Trophy 2017 win and also he was a very successful captain in T20i.He has improved his fitness very much and also performing well in the domestic circuit and there are some rumours suggesting that he will make a comeback to the squad.

He has scored 148 runs in 9 matches with an average of just over 21 and dismissed 7 batsmen with his wicket-keeping skills in PSL 2020.Nobody can doubt his batting skills and also he is an excellent wicket-keeper.He has performed for Pakistan many times and won the games with his batting and captaincy skills.


Considering the performance and stats of both the players in recent times,Sarfaraz and Kamran Akmal equally deserve a comeback but just Kamran Akmal has an edge because he is an opener and in good form and the openers in Pakistan squad are not performing well and giving a strong start.
