Pakistan cricketer Umar Akmal became the butt of all jokes on social media after a reported quote from him went viral. Not just the meme-fest but a new hashtag (#UmarAkmalQuote) started trending on Twitter as soon as Akmal’s reported faux pass spread like wildfire. Akmal reportedly posted a photo with former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzak and his post read: “Mother from another brother.” Social media users took note of the mistake as the real phrase is ‘brother from another mother’.
Not just on social media but things aren’t going great for Akmal in his professional life as well. He has been suspended by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday with immediate effect under Anti-Corruption Code pending investigation.
Umar Akmal, who was part of the Quetta Gladiators in PSL, will in all probability be replaced by the franchise. “Quetta Gladiators are allowed to apply for Umar Akmal’s replacement in the HBL Pakistan Super League 2020,” PCB added.
