WATCH: Umar Akmal out for a golden duck in debut match in US
CALIFORNIA – Pakistan’s right-handed batsman Umar Akmal, who left Pakistan mid-season to explore foreign opportunities, bowled for a golden duck on his first match in the United States.
The 31-year-old earlier urged fans to pray as he signed a contract with the Northern California Cricket Association. He seems optimistic but luck wasn’t on his side when he walked out at the first bowl.
The Pakistani player also bowled four overs in his debut match but failed to get any wicket in it either while the clip of Umar’s golden duck is doing rounds on social media. He is representing California Zalmi after signing the contract of the Premier C league.
The brother of the former Pakistani wicketkeeper earlier left the South Asian country mid-season to try his luck playing league cricket in the US.
