Umar injury under scanner


PALLEKELE – Pakistan manager Intikhab Alam denied Saturday that Umar Akmal had faked a finger injury in a bid to save his blundering brother Kamran’s place in the team.
Umar, who has been tipped to take the gloves from his brother against Zimbabwe, hurt his index finger on his right hand in practice. But some sections of the media have accused him of feigning injury to save Kamran.
The management had accused Umar of feigning injury after the infamous Sydney Test against Australia.
