The Former cricker Wasim Akram lashed out on former fastest bowler Shoaib Akhter and called him ‘Batmeez’ during an interview with ARY News.
“I don’t know why people take Shoaib Akhtar’s statements so seriously, If someone has no “Tameez” , then he doesn’t know anything in life,” stated Wasim Akram.
Moreover, Wasim Akram talked about captain Babar Azam as according to the reports he is not being happy with some of the players selected in the squad, Akram stated that Babar needs to learn the art of looking at players and friends differently.
“Babar is one of the best players in the world right now. He’s got unbelievable talent and he’s growing as a leader. However, he needs to decide whether he wants his friends in the team or he wants the players that would benefit Pakistan? I think the sooner he decides this, the better it would be for him”, he further stated.
He also needs to learn the art of winning. If he thinks he can turn an average player into a match-winner, then he needs to back him. This mindset needs to be installed in Pakistan cricket.”
During the interview, Wasim Akram was asked whether Pakistan should review the decision to select Mohammad Amir again?.
Answering to the question, Akram said “I think it is too late for Amir now ,he should have made that decision earlier. The team has been selected now.”
