What? Famous Pakistani Cricketer Umar Akmal Declared Dead On Social Media. Here is What He Has To Say.
We all know Umar is facing many problems these days since his public outburst on his Coach, Mickey Arthur. He had a sparkling career in his early days but that has dropped rapidly in the recent years. On top of that, he faced another problem after he was declared ‘dead’ on social media platforms.(Umar Akmal Declared Dead On Social Media)
Upset with the rumors troll, Akmal put out a message on his Twitter account to update his fans about his well-being.
“Alhamdulillah, I am safe n perfectly fine in Lahore all news coming from social media is fake. And Insha Allah I will join #National20cup2017 #Semifinale” Akmal tweeted.

He also requested people not to spread the fake news.
“As salaam alaikum guys. By the grace of Allah, I am safe. All the news doing the rounds is fake. You will see me live in the semi-finals. And I request everyone not to spread news like this. Thank you very much.” Akmal said in his video message.

Earlier in August, Umar created the problem himself after he targeted Arthur after being denied use of facilities at the National Cricket Academy in a Press Conference.
“I had gone to England for rehabilitation of my knee injury,” Akmal said on August 16. “After I recovered, I went to the NCA to start working on my fitness and training. But the coaching staff doesn’t want to work with me at all.
“When I asked why all those international coaches didn’t want to work with me, they responded that they wanted to prioritize working with players who had central contracts. I said that I too am an international Pakistan cricketer, and if my fitness is lacking – and I admit that along the way my fitness has been found wanting – they should help me.”
However, Umar regretted his own words later!
Hope to see him soon in the Cricket match.
