Pakistan A lost their 2nd test against Australia A in Townsville but not before Umar Akmal had posted his second century in as many games on tour.
Continuing on from his match saving 100 in the previous test, Umar played another outstanding knock scoring 129 in Pakistan A's 1st innings, leading them to a sizeable first innings lead.
Umar's knock was again an aggressive one as he scored at a strike rate of almost 90 with 14 boundaries and 3 sixes.
This was Umar's 5th first class hundred in his 26th game.
Not many Pakistani batsmen have done well in Australia; Umar's performance down under is heartening to say the least.
I don't remember the last time a Pakistani batsmen hit 2 consecutive hundreds in Australia - in an international match or otherwise.
Umar has done so and that too against a more than decent looking attack including the likes of Doug Bollinger, Jason Krejza, and Clint McKay.
He is definitely one to watch for the future.
