30 is the number of dismissals effected by wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal of Pakistan. It includes 12 catches and 18 stumpings. Akmal is the most successful wicketkeeper in World T20.
Kamran Akmal has been one of the most successful wicketkeepers for Pakistan. He has been quite handy with the wicketkeeping gloves and a useful bat who came good in the most difficult of situations. Batting lower down the order in Test cricket, Kamran has bailed out Pakistan on numerous occasions. In the limited overs format, he used to open the batting, coming up with useful cameos to provide good starts to Pakistan’s innings.
In 2009 World T20 final against Sri Lanka, he made a timely knock of 37 as an opener to pave the way for Pakistan’s triumph. Coming to wicketkeeping in World T20, he has surged ahead of big names such as Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka and MS Dhoni of India. In 30 World T20 matches, he has effected 30 dismissals, the most by any wicketkeeper in this tournament. The 30 dismissals include 12 catches and 18 stumpings.
