Wasim Akram expressed dissatisfaction about several current Pakistani players accepting commentator jobs for the 2023 World Cup.
Due to their poor performance in the Cricket World Cup 2023, the Pakistani cricket team has received a lot of criticism from the sports community, especially at home. Babar Azam’s team has come under fire from a number of current and past players for their dismal World Cup performance. One of the all-time great bowlers, Wasim Akram, expressed disapproval of Pakistan’s World Cup performance as well. He found it hard to believe that a few current Pakistani players were appearing as experts on television.
In light of the World Cup being held in India, Akram appears to have poked fun at Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir, who had both accepted positions with a Pakistani TV network. Despite his retirement from international cricket, Amir hasn’t ruled out the chance of coming back if the right circumstances materialise.
“The players who are engaged with representing Pakistan are doing well, but what about the rest? While watching television, a few of them express their desire to represent Pakistan as players. In an A-Sports discussion, Akram said, “How is it possible?
Actually, Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir are among the players whom former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq believes belong in the Pakistani team.
In response to criticism of the speed at which India’s Virat Kohli achieved the record 49th ODI century, Imad and Amir recently spoke up for Kohli.
“Virat Kohli considers his surroundings and strategizes every action on the pitch. He’s brilliant at run chases, knowing when to attack and when to go for a six. There’s not a better player right now, he’s a special player. It is unfair to criticise him in this way,” Wasim had stated.
“I find it incomprehensible that people are always comparing Virat Kohli to other players; such comparisons are absurd. It’s also important to take the player’s intentions into account. He was playing ball-to-ball and exerting himself during the match against Sri Lanka, Amir had stated.
