Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal has boldly stated that he is a changed man and fans will see that the next time he plays for his country.
Akmal has a history of becoming embroiled in controversies, but he pointed out that he has been investing more time in training and playing cricket as of late.
The 29-year-old admitted that his mind used to focus on “irrelevant things”, but insisted that this is no longer the case.
“I have changed myself a lot. My family has a big role to play in this. I have not appeared in headlines or social media for the past three to four years. I am trying to focus on my training and cricket now. That is why my focus has shifted from other irrelevant things,” he told cricketpakistan.com.pk. “You can say that you will see a new Umar Akmal the next time my fans see me. I am trying very hard to curtail my off-field activities. I plan on giving more time to my cricket and training.”
