Adnan Akmal
« on: November 13, 2010, 09:08:02 AM »

Is he first wicketkeeper who have worn Aero KPR pads in a test match? I certainly haven't seen anyone wearing them. To me it looks like he bought them himself rather than being sponsored (maybe Philip can explain it out)

three brothers, all playing test cricket - brilliant - they must have had some titanic matches when they were growing up!

and a lot of fighting over who is keeping!

Not sure if you know but Umar was a keeper for 5th ODI although he is not a natural keeper but he kept very well. Seems like these brothers are genetically keepers.

In total these Akmals are 6-7 and all of them look very similar and among the cricketering brothers Umar is most talented batsman.

When Kamran started to play cricket (not international) he was a specialist batsman and took keeping role to come into the side.

On the other hand Adnan is a keeper naturally and is better than Kamran who himself says this.

Are you kidding me? Kamran Akmal a genetic keeper? He can't catch a cold my friend!

The first keeper to wear KPR legs in a test match was Prasanna Jayawardene a couple of years ago in New Zealand.  These look off the shelf and have had the Aero logos covered up.

Not really, if he is sponsored by another brand but they can't make him a keeping leg that he likes to wear then that probably reflects badly on them rather than us. 

We don't pay this guy to wear our gear so we can't expect him to give us free advertising.
