Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal, the favorite of trolls, was again on their target after adding an unwanted record to his name. Umar was dismissed for a duck against Sri Lanka in the first T20I at Gaddafi stadium. 

Akmal was trapped in front of the wickets by Nuwan Pradeep on his first delivery. This counted as his ninth T20I duck in 83 matches. He left Shahid Afridi behind who has eight ducks in 99 T20Is.
