Umar Akmal puts his foot in mouth again & thanks God for Misbah-ul-Haq’s retirement! Watch Video

Caught making another foot in the mouth moment, this time Umar Akmal commented on the retirement of ace Pakistani cricketer, Misbah-ul-Haq blurted out that "Sabse pehle toh main Allah ka shukriya ada karta hoon (First of all, I'd like to thank Allah)”

The right-handed batsman and a part-time Pakistani spinner, Umar Akmal apart from being an exceptional player suffers from a bizarre syndrome of blurting out the most atrocious stuff at times. Right from featuring in ridiculous music videos, misbehavior with the police and describing cricketer’s death, “very nice”, the 26-year-old cricketer recently dished a strange reason for his exclusion from the national team. Caught making another foot in the mouth moment, this time Umar Akmal commented on the retirement of ace Pakistani cricketer, Misbah-ul-Haq and for reasons best known to him, he blurted out that “Sabse pehle toh main Allah ka shukriya ada karta hoon (First of all, I’d like to thank Allah)”

The 42-year-old cricketer and current captain of the Pakistani cricket team, Misbah-ul-Haq, had announced recently that the upcoming Test series in the West Indies shall be his final international assignment. When asked about his opinion on the same, Umar Akmal launched into his signature bizarre mode and this is how he answered.


Falling prey to some serious trolling, here’s how Twitter reacted to Umar Akmal’s bizarre moment for Misbah-ul-Haw’s retirement.





Failing the fitness test, Umar Akmal cited the reason as drinking too much water that led to a weight gain. Umar Akmal has two brothers Adnan and Kamran who are also fellow cricketers. Umar Akmal told the Pakistani media that he and his brother Kamran experience weight gain even by drinking water while his brother Adnan’s biological system does not show his heavy diet on his body! Wow! Hearing this, we reckon that scientists all over the brain have either given up their research on water, human weight, and diet and going on a strike or taking Umar Akmal seriously and getting to research his new found claim!
