    We must first pay tribute to the man who made it all possible – the Maharajah of Missed Chances, the Don Corleone of Dropped Catches, the Earl of Err, the Pharaoh of Fumble, Lance Corporal Granite Hands himself, Kamran Akmal.

    Let us count his Dropped catches and Missed Stumping (13 July 2006 onwards ODIs, T20s and Tests).

    63.2 Collingwood was on 79(Final Score = 186)
    Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, gone, out, no! Dropped! Leg-cutter, outside edge straight to Kamran Akmal ? dreadful shot from Collingwood I might add ? and, somehow, Akmal shelled it. Deafening silence from the captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, and not much more being said from the slips. Ooh, that?s a shocker

    38.2 Collingwood was on 21(Final Score = 31)
    Shahid Nazir to Collingwood, no run, yikes, Collingwood hangs his bat out to dry ? good away-swing from Shahid again ? but it passes his outside edge. Nevertheless, Akmal somehow drops a clanger and the ball bobbles from his gloves

    England v Pakistan
    36.1 KP Pietersen was on 15 (Final Score = 96)
    Danish Kaneria to Pietersen, no run, oooh, outside edge and dropped. Snorter of a delivery, Pietersen's caught in two minds, and Akmal can't hold on to the feather. Kaneria's just not having the luck today.

    Pakistan v West Indies

    22.3 Gibbs was on 2 (Final Score = 2)
    Danish Kaneria to Gibbs, no run, ooh! Edge again - but dropped. Kaneria sent the ball bending back in at the right hander, taking the edge and spilled again by Akmal. Good bowling, this
    70.1 Kallis was on 63 (Final Score = 91)
    Danish Kaneria to Kallis, no run, oh no - has Akmal dropped yet another one? Ooh, not sure - Kallis went chasing that one and seemed to feather it through to Akmal who drops it. But the replays are inconclusive. Akmal's having a poor match anyway.
    103.1 MV Boucher was on 27 (Final Score = 46)
    Mohammad Hafeez to Boucher, no run, Akmal drops another one! tossed up and this one turned back in sharply, Boucher defends on the back-foot and the ball clips the inside edge and goes behind but Akmal fails to hold on to a fairly easy chance. He is clearly having a tough time out there

    Danish Kaneria to Hussey, no run, trying playing defensively from the crease, Hussey's beaten by a ball that rips past the outside edge of his upright bat Subsquent replays suggest this may have been a dropped catch by Kamran Akmal.

    Mohammad Amir to Strauss, no run, 136.0 kph, dropped! Kamran, what have you done? Perfect outswinger from Aamer, Strauss edges and Akmal puts down the simplest of chances. Kamran kept so well against Australia - relatively speaking, anyway - but this is the worst possible start for him against England
    22.4 Collingwood was on 0 (Final Score = 1)
    Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, 142.1 kph, oh no! Kamran has gone from hero back to zero! Dropped! After just pulling off a stunner he's put Collingwood down first ball, it was wide, Collingwood flashed a cut and edges it towards first slip, Akmal flew across and dropped the chance

You can't expect him to take that - it's an inside edge onto the thigh and then sneaking past the stumps, Kamran dives and just gets his left fingertip to the ball as it runs away towards fine leg for a boundary
    Steve Davis has called that leg byes, but there was an inside edge on it, no question

    Pakistan in India ODI Series - 3rd ODI

    0.1 Ganguly was on 0 (Final Score = 39)
    Shoaib Akhtar to Ganguly, no run, Dropped! Would you believe it? Kamran Akmal drops a regulation 'keeper catch. It was full in length, outside off stump and Ganguly had a poke at it with an open-face of the bat. Sure, the ball was dipping as it went to the left of Akmal but he should have held it. What a start. Hold your mails. We know many of you don't rate Akmal much.

    Umar Gul to Abdur Razzak, FOUR, Dropped by Akmal. well he didn't even reach it. He should have as it wasn't too far to his left. Gul had produced a jab and a edge wit ha delivery that straightened outside off stump from round the stumps and Akmal was late in reacting

    36.6 Sharma was on 9 (Final Score = 22)
    Shoaib Akhtar to Sharma, 1 run, all night Akmal has been appealing without any edges, now he gets a regulation edge and he drops it! Poor keeping really! Beats me how this man is keeping in international cricket! Sharma goes chasing, edged away slightly wide of him, he sticks out one firm hand and it bounces off it. Really didn't have to go too far
    Asia Cup - 1st match

    2.5 Dilshan was on 12 (Final Score = 18)
    Shoaib Akhtar to Dilshan, FOUR, Edged between the keeper and the first slip. It pitched well ahead of the cordon and rolled away. It was around 145 kmph back-of-length delivery and Dilshan went for the cut and edged. Kamran dived but couldn't reach in time
    8.4 Jayawardene was on 0 (Final Score = 54)
    Mohammad Asif to Jayawardene, FOUR, Edged but Kamran couldn't get to it. It was a lovely leg cutter around off - a classic Asif delivery - and Mahela had a lame poke at it,. Almost fatal. The gap between the keeper and slip was wide and Kamran dived but couldn't reach

    41.2 Kulasekara was on 5 (Final Score = 14)
    Shahid Afridi to Kulasekara, 1 wide, Stumping chance missed. Not a surprise if you have followed Kamran's career. It was down the leg side and Kula had leaned forward to flick and lost balance and had stepped well out of the crease. But Kamran doesn't collect it cleanly. Oh well
    Asia Cup - 5th match

    43.2 Shkib ul Hassan was on 2 (Final Score = 25)
    Abdur Rehman to Shakib Al Hasan, 3 runs, thank God for some constants in life! Kamran Akmal has dropped one! Difficult edge, though, a thick one and a decent deflection. But thankfully some things never change

    Umar Gul to Yardy, 1 run, Kamran Akmal drops it! Calamity Kamran strikes again! Gul finds a thickish outside edge that goes low and wide to Kamran, diving one-handed to his left and he couldn't quite hold on. Looks to have damaged his finger as well
    Pakistan in New Zealand ODI Series - 5th ODI
    44.1 NL McCullum was on 4 (Final Score = 14)
    Wahab Riaz to NL McCullum, 1 run, somethings in Pakistan cricket never change. Like the fact that inevitably, Kamran Akmal will drop a catch. He's done it again. Short ball, Nathan gets a top edge behind his head and it was a dolly for Kamran who was moving back. And he put it down.
    ICC Cricket World Cup - 10th match, Group A

    30.1 Sangakkara was on 22 (Final Score = 49)
    Abdur Rehman to Sangakkara, 5 wides, Kamran fluffs a stumping, all is well with the world, Rehman beat Sanga with some flight, and angling it down the leg side, he got some extra bounce again, which beat Kamran totally, Sanga was in no position to get back
    34.6 Sangakkara was on 33 (Final Score = 49)
    Abdur Rehman to Sangakkara, 1 wide, Kamran, oh Kamran. Another fluffed stumping. Same as before, Sanga jumps out a mile looking to flick. Rehman sees him and fires it wide, Sanga misses and is halfway down the track. Kamran whips the bails off. Find the missing link - yes, Kamran did not collect. I now know the only weak link in Pakistan's side. It is behind the stumps.
    ICC Cricket World Cup - 17th match, Group A
    3.1 Gunasekera was on 8 (Final Score = 8)
    Umar Gul to Gunasekera, no run, dropped by Kamran or did it go off the back thigh? It cut across from the leg stump line, went right across the batsman who was squared-up in defense. the ball flew to left of Akmal, who was initially moving to his right. He then threw a big dive with outstretched left hand but couldn't hold on. Replays don't confirm an edge. It seems it went off the thigh.
    ICC Cricket World Cup - 24th match, Group A
    13.2 Taylor was on 0 (Final Score = 131*)
    Shoaib Akhtar to Taylor, FOUR, Ross gets a birthday gift, it's the Kamran moment, Shoaib got the edge with a perfect delivery that zipped away just a shade, the ball flew between younis and Kamran, who initially appeared to go for it, and then did the keeper's version of shouldering arms, stood stone still, as a bemused Younis looked on

    13.4 Taylor was on 8 (Final Score = 131*)
    Shoaib Akhtar to Taylor, no run, oh I don't believe this, two birthday gifts is too much, from the same man too, Shoaib has Ross pushing at a one that held its line,and the healthy edge goes ever so slowly to Kamran who is in good position to take it, gets gloves on it, and clangs it, Shoaib can't do anything about it, boy is he distraught
    30.4 Styris was on 4 (Final Score = 28)
    Shahid Afridi to Styris, 1 run, another drop from Kamran, outside off, Styris looks to stab it from the crease, edged and Kamran's horror day continues, Afridi is not amused

    Pakistan Vs England, Trent Bridge, 2010.

    70.2 Collingwood was on 48(Final Score = 82)
    Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, missed stumping! Kamran's really not having a good day... Collingwood charged down the track, was beaten in the air and by the turn. He was practically walking off he was so far down, but Kamran fumbled the take, and couldn't pick the ball up before the batsman got back in. Kaneria really needed that wicket - Pakistan needed it!

    Pakistan Vs England, Oval, 2006.

    40.3 Mahmood was on 0 (Final Score = 15)
    Danish Kaneria to Mahmood, 4 byes, ah, should have been out. Mahmood came down the wicket aiming to hoick that over mid-on; instead he completely missed it and should have been stumped by yards but Akmal didn’t even move and the ball flew past his gloves really easily

    Pakistan in South Africa Test Series - 2nd Test

    40.4 Prince was on 17 (Final Score = 22)
    Danish Kaneria to Prince, no run, stumping chance missed! A lovely teasing flighted delivery, again Prince comes down the track and is beaten by the flight and the dip. The ball threads through the bat and pad gap and is just outside off stump and Akmal clangs it. Would have been definitely out had he gathered.

    Sri Lanka in Pakistan ODI Series - 2nd ODI

    34.2 Jayawardena was on 5 (Final Score = 24)
    Shahid Afridi to Jayawardene, no run, went through him! Kept low there, pitched on a good length outside off, just fractionally wide of the off stump, and spun away, Mahela failed to get his bat down in time and the ball clipped his back pad on the way to the keeper. Replays indicate there was an inside edge, but a really tough chance there for the keeper.

    Pakistan v West Indies ODI Series - 3rd ODI

    15.2 Gayle was on 34 (Final Score = 122)

    Pakistan in India Test Series - 3rd Test

    118.6 Pathan was on 23 (Final Score = 102)
    Danish Kaneria to Pathan, no run, fullish and outside the off, played at with hard hands, the ball slips past bat, the reactions from Akmal, who gloves the ball to the floor, and the bowler, suggest that there might have been an edge to that

    Pakistan in Australia Test Series - 1st Test

    74.6 Ponting was on 30 (Final Score = 57)
    Mohammad Asif to Ponting, no run, forward with bat and pad to a good delivery that nips through the batsman's defence, if he nicked it it was of no consequence since Kamran Akmal failed to take it cleanly
    Replays suggest Ponting probably got an inside edge. So perhaps we can put that one down as a drop to Kamran Akmal.

    NatWest Series [Pakistan in England] - 2nd ODI

    40.6 Morgan was on 1 (Final Score = 16)
    Mohammad Hafeez to Morgan, no run, edged, and dropped by Kamran! It was a really thick edge and a big deflection as Morgan tried to cut, the keeper did well to even get a glove to that

    Bangladesh in Pakistan ODI Series - 5th ODI

    25.3 Dhiman Gosh was on 21 (Final Score = 29)

    Shahid Afridi to Ponting, 1 bye, Ponting comes down the pitch, Afridi beats him with a quicker ball but Akmal misses a stumping chance

    ICC World Twenty20 2007 - 1st semi final

    19.6 Taylor was on 36 (Final Score = 37*)
    Mohammad Asif to Taylor, 1 run, low full toss pulled high in the air off the bottom of the bat and that's a poor piece of keeping from Akmal who calls for it... and then fluffs it. That may be amusing, but let's hope for his sake that it doesn't come down to a run...

    ICC World Twenty20 2009 - 1st semi final

    8.2 AB de Villiers was on 1 (Final Score = 1)
    Shahid Afridi to de Villiers, no run, dropped by Akmal. Lovely ripping leg break turning from the off stump line, AB pushed hard at it, got the thick edge and Akmal couldn't hold on to slightly difficult chance

    ICC World Twenty20 2010 - 4th match, Group A

    6.5 Mohammad Ashraful was on 11 (Final Score = 65)
    Abdul Razzaq to Mohammad Ashraful, FOUR, educated edge just wide of the keeper Akmal, who put a surprisingly low-key effort. A big dive was possibly in order, but it ran away for four

    7.1 Shakib Al Hasan was on 7 (Final Score = 47)
    Mohammad Hafeez to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, was that a drop from Kamran? short of a length, Shakib can't connect with the flick but possibly got a thick inside edge, and Kamran put it down

    15.4 Mahmudullah was on 0 (Final Score = 0)
    Mohammad Sami to Mahmudullah, no run, dropped by Kamran Akmal! Thickish inside edge that darted in, and Kamran had to regroup and dive to his left. In the end, he did well to stop what would have been a sure four

    ICC World Twenty20 2010 - 21st match, Group E

    14.2 AB de Villiers was on 34 (Final Score = 53)
    Abdur Rehman to de Villiers, no run, goes for the sweep shot, it bounces over the middle stump line and Akmal doesn't collect it cleanly. Was there an edge? The replays aren't conclusive. BAd angles basically

    Pakistan in England T20I Series - 1st T20I

    12.2 Yardy was on 13 (Final Score = 35)
    Saeed Ajmal to Yardy, 2 runs, dropped by Kamran, tough chance as it flicked the edge, Kamran didn't even get a hand on it, it just flicked the edge and went off his knee

    Pakistan in South Africa Test Series - 3rd Test

    62.5 Prince was on 58 (Final Score = 59)
    Shahid Nazir to Prince, no run, oh no! Akmal's had a(nother) shocker there. Prince got a big inside edge and there was a regulation catch, low to his right, which slips out of his gloves while the players are busy celebrating. It's unlikely to have made a huge difference, in truth, but it won't have done Akmal's confidence, nor his reputation, any good

    ICC Cricket World Cup 40th Match, Group A

    39.4 Krejza was on 0 (Final Score= 7)
    Abdur Rehman to Krejza, no run, that beat everything, Akmal included. Missed stumping? Perhaps. Akmal's day had been too good to last

    ICC Cricket World Cup, 1st Quarter-Final

    31.1 Chanderpaul was on 24 (Final Score = 44*)
    Saeed Ajmal to Chanderpaul, no run, regulation miss of a stumping from Kamran. Zipping offie outside off, leads Chanders out and he misses the flick. Kamra had to collect and break the stumps, instead it hit his glove and thudded into his chin.

    ICC Cricket World Cup - 2nd semi final

    29.3 Tendulkar was on 70(Final Score = 85)
    Shahid Afridi to Tendulkar, no run, Dropped again Shahid Afridi holds his head again! Dropped by Kamran. Tough chance, though. It was the leg break and Tendulkar edged his defensive push. The ball deviated a lot and Kamran couldn't move his hands to his right in time. Tough chance for Kamran's standards. How many is too many? So many lives!

    41.2 Dhoni was on 24 (Final Score = 25)
    Wahab Riaz to Dhoni, 1 run, edged and dropped! Kamran it is, a thick edge flies to his right, hitting the fingers and bouncing out. That was a really tough chance, there's no slip in so he's got to go for it, he stretches into the dive ... but can't hold on!

    ICC World T20 - final group match, Group D

    31.4 Wade was on 17 (Final score = 22)
    Azhar Ali to Wade, 1 wide, 83.5 kph, and Kamran misses a stumping, Wade walks out to one going down leg quickly, but Kamran fails to gather, Azhar has his hand on his face in anguish

    15.5 Nassir Hossain was on 1 (Final Score = 16)
    Shahid Afridi to Nasir Hossain, no run, beaten as Afridi slowed it up, the conventional legspinner, Nasir played at it and got a thin edge that was dropped by Kamran Akmal, sharp chance put down

    0.6 Amla was on 2 (Final score = 6)
    Raza Hasan to Amla, no run, dropped, Kamran's let Amla off. Amla tried to whack the ball inside out over the off side once again and edged it, fairly routine chance and Akmal fails to hold on. Amla was well out of his crease, could have been stumped as well

    92) Mohammad Irfan to de Villiers, 1 wide, another one down the leg side and is called a wide. But there was some interest by the bowler. It did take a faint nick, but wouldnt have mattered as Kamran didn't take it cleanly

    93) Saeed Ajmal to Amla, no run, beautifully bowled! How did that miss the stumps! It was tossed up outside off, it dipped in very quickly as Amla went for the drive and squeezes between the bat and pad, goes over the stumps. A stumping chance missed too as Akmal gets surprised by that too..It hits him on his chest

    94) Mohammad Irfan to Iqbal, no run, dropped!Iqbal goes feeling for the cut outside off, nicked through to the keeper and Kamran shells it diving low to his right, not an easy catch but he should be taking that

    New 95) World T20, 16th Match, Group 2: Australia v Pakistan at Dhaka
    9.6 Finch was on 34 (Final Score = 65 )
    Saeed Ajmal to Finch, no run, another doosra and I cannot understand how that has missed off stump! Tentative push from Finch, who had not picked it and is lucky to survive as the ball bounces right over the off bail and thuds into the keeper's gloves and promptly falls out. There was an outside edge too Ajmal throws a forlorn look back as Pakistan drop a crucial catch

    Total runs made by batsmen after dropped catches/Missed stumping so far = 2739

    Every WK body drop catches it's okay his batting is still far superior than all the replacements we have tested.

    He can make into the team as a batsman alone.

    As a Batsman alone he is is far better batsman than Hafeez, Asad , Azhar , Afridi, Malik, Misbah and Yk in limited overs. His aggressive batting strengthens our 1 dimensional lineup of tuk tuks.

    Better player of fast bowling than Hafeez, Asad , Azhar, Afridi, Malik, Misbah and Yk.
    Better player of spin than Hafeez, Ahmed Shahzad, Afridi, Misbah and Azhar.

    I wonder why he is failing since so many matches now.

    AND dont give the retarded excuse of playing him as an opener. We have better openers than him so its either middle order or nothing.

    A good player like Kamran(according to only you ofcourse) should be good enough to bat in the middle order.

    It's a shame because I was willing to forget some of these drops if he managed to contribute like he has done in the past but if he's going to keep failing with the bat, he's a huge liability.

    Mohammad Irfan to de Villiers, 1 wide, another one down the leg side and is called a wide. But there was some interest by the bowler. It did take a faint nick, but wouldnt have mattered as Kamran didn't take it cleanly

    WHat? I've never been a Kamran fan. Just because I rot for Umar does not mean that I support Kamran as well. Most people can separate the two and judge them individually.
