Aggression key to tame South Africa: Kamran Akmal

Islamabad: Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal believes the only way for Pakistan to make a comeback in three-Test series against South Africa is to play aggressively and positively against their fearsome pace attack.

Kamran, the veteran of 53 Tests, 143 ODIs and 49 T20 matches, was overlooked for the Tests in South Africa but is in line to be picked for the limited over games.

Pakistan were drubbed by 211 runs in the first Test at the Centurion and there are fears of another repeat in the second Test beginning on February 14 at Cape Town which has been notorious for low scores in the last two years.

New Zealand were bowled out for 45 recently and Australia also fell for 42 in 2011 after they had bowled out South Africa for 92 runs.

Kamran has been busy in Pakistan`s domestic season which has been one of the most competitive in recent times due to the participation of top players first for their departments in the President`s Trophy and now for their regional sides in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.
