Kamran Akmal withdraws from PSL protesting relegation to silvery category.

Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal has withdrawn from the 2022 PSL edition after protesting his relegation to the silver category during the players draft.

Kamran, 39, announced on his YouTube channel that he didn’t want to play in the PSL 7 beginning from January 27 in Karachi.

The seasoned player, who is the second-highest run-getter in PSL history with two hundreds to his name, was initially demoted from the platinum category to the gold category by the Pakistan Cricket Board before the draft was held on Sunday.

“I had even protested as to why I was demoted because I had performed consistently for Peshawar in the PSL,” he said.
