Kolkata: “Pakistan Cricket Board lacks discipline,” says Wasim Akram on Tuesday. Staying in India for his IPL commitments, Wasim Akram was heard lashing out at the Pakistan cricket board for their lack of commitment and discipline towards cricket. He said that that the board needs to be more well orgainsed to take Pakistan cricket forward. The Sultan of Swing was even seen hurling out at the decision of dropping a couple of key playuers from the national side in the world cup 2015. Whenever the team doesn’t do well, we sack the players. How come we drop Umar Akmal, how can we drop Ahmed Shehzad? They are young guys and the PCB has invested in these boys for the last 10 years,” said Akram.The duo was dropped for Pakistan’s tour to Bangladesh allegedly due to indiscipline during the World Cup.
Pakistan’s performance has not been upto the mark in the recent past. After getting defeated to the host team Australia in the world cup, Pakistan was brownwashed by Bangladesh even. Infact the team could not set their mark in the test series even. Amidst such scenario, the world class left arm pacer has lashed out at the Pakistan cricketing heads. Adding to it, he has even said that the board had never offered Wasim to take charge of the team. At present he is with KKR ,serving as their bowling coach.
“Pakistan and England are surely missing out not financially but on the skill. The batsmen, the bowlers, they get to learn a lot, plus the exposure of playing in front of thousands of spectators.” “Playing against big crowd gives you confidence, which you certainly need. Hopefully Pakistan and England will definitely play in the IPL in the future,” added Akram.
