Pakistan cricketers are generally trolled for their English. In a recent incident batsman, Umar Akmal faced something similar when he posted a picture on his social media handle with former player Abdul Razzaq and captioned it, “Mother from another brother.”
Though, the original phrase is “brother from another mother”, Akmal literally miscued the caption by a huge margin.
This is not the first time that a Pakistan cricketer has been trolled for his English. A number of videos of former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed have gone viral of him using the favourite Pakistan cricket’s slang, “Boys played well”.
The tweet that Akmal made was deleted later but it gave the users enough time to take screengrabs of the same.
Umar Akmal was on Thursday slapped with a suspension by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) with immediate effect, pending an anti-corruption investigation. The board didn’t really provide the specific information about the breach committed by the batsman.
Akmal last played for Pakistan in October 2019. He has appeared in 16 Tests, 121 ODIs and 84 T20Is for Pakistan.
