Factually speaking, Kamran Akmal doesn't give you the impression of being a toothless glovesman.
On the contrary, he comes across more as an assortment of molar, premolar, canine and what not.
If Anil Kumble is Jumbo –- a dentist is bound to question the soundness of the simile -- Akmal is Mammoth. Now take that.
But form and fortune can be as fickle as Liz Taylor in her pomp, which is roughly 1950-91 when she married eight times to seven husbands. And Akmal, although a mammoth cricketer in his own rights, experienced the same in Sydney.
Both literally and figuratively, he dropped the ball at SCG. Ball after ball to be more accurate. And now his team is reciprocating, dropping him like a hot brick.
Now that leaves us with just one Akmal in Hobart and no prize for guessing that it's not the one long in the tooth.
P.S. Was searching for Kamran Akmal's photo. All I could lay my hands on was this Nestle product.
