AZAD KASHMIR: Bagh Stallions' wicket-keeper batter Kamran Akmal thinks that Shahid Afridi's Jammu Janbaz and Shoaib Malik's Mirpur Royals will be tough opponents to face in the second season of Kashmir Premier League (KPL).
Speaking in a video interview shared by KPL 2 management, Kamran said Janbaz, who is his brother Umar's team, and the Royals have good combinations.
"Jammu Janbaz has a good combination and also Shoaib Malik's Mirpur Royals. These two teams will be tough opponents," said the opening batter.
"Overall, all teams are good, having strong combinations. We, as a team, will try to play the best cricket to win the tournament," he added.
Kamran said he and his brother Umar always share on-field rivalry. "No one is your brother and friend on the field. I and Umar always share rivalry on the field. My focus will be to guide my bowlers and share a plan to win the game," said Kamran who last represented Kotli Lions in KPL 1.
KPL 2 will be played at Muzaffarabad Cricket Stadium from August 13 to 26. Reigning Champions Rawalakot Hawks will start their title defense against Janbaz tomorrow.
