Islamabad: The form of the Akmal brothers, Kamran and Umar, who have so far failed to live up to their billing, is worrying the Pakistani camp.
The Pakistani team management has advised the Akmal brothers to improve their performances in the series against England in order to secure their places in the team.
Umar's form and his inability to play the moving ball has created doubts about making the best use of this talent this summer, The News reports.
A well-placed Pakistan team source said that both Umar and Kamran have been advised to concentrate on their batting as only performance can guarantee them permanent places in the team.

"There is no doubt that Umar Akmal is a great talent but unless and until he performs consistently, we cannot guarantee his place in the team. In fact none of the players have a permanent place in the team, those who perform, would stay in the playing XI," a coaching staff member said.
