  • Due to personal grudges some ex players make fun of pak cricket in front of entire world that too in this difficult time in pak cricket and leave question mark on Pakistan cricket credibility and its integrity.Best think Was is doing to ignore such people as any exchange of comments and statement can only hurt pak cricket. Waseem Akram has name in entire cricketing world and he is known as Pakistani great.

  • This is unfair to blame a cricketer like Akram after 17 years of retirement. It is sad he has go through this.

  • I remember Sarfraz Nawaz taking 9 for 86 in Melbourne in 1978 -79 , when on TV a reporter asked him after the game how he would be celebrating ? He replied, having a few drinks and made a point of stressing Non Alcoholic only, my religion does not permit me to drink alcohol. Next game at Adelaide Oval he Is having beers with us In The members bar, I asked him about his statement on TV, he whispered that he did not want to offend the Pakistani supporters. Now he is pointing finger at other cricketers of gambling. How ironic is that.

  • Wasim Akram is one of the greatest ever cricketers period. It is depressing to see people not half as talented as Wasim trying continuously to besmirch his name
