Pakistan have produced many talented cricketers and former pacemakers Wasim Akram Is one of them.
Akram played a key role in Pakistan’s first ODI World Cup triumph in the 1992 edition of the marquee. The legendary Pakistani sailor nicknamed “Sultan of Swing” also led the Green team, which made it to the 1999 World Cup final.
Despite being such a big name in world cricket and a respected figure in Pakistani cricket, Akram has never coached the national team after hanging his boots. Recently, the left-shooter revealed the reason he doesn’t want to coach the Pakistani cricket team.
“When you become a coach, you have to give the team at least 200 to 250 days a year, and that’s a lot of work. I don’t think I can do that much work outside of Pakistan and my family. And the way it is, I spend time with most of the players in the PSL, they all have my numbers and they keep asking for advice. “ Akram said on the show “Cricket Corner” for Cricket Pakistan.
“I’m not a fool. I hear and see on social media again and again how people misbehave with their coaches and seniors. The coach is not the one who plays. It is the players who play. The coach can only help When the team loses, I think the coach is not as responsible or accountable as we hold him as a nation, and that’s what I’m scared of because I can’t have anyone misbehaving with me. And we get like that. I love the people, their enthusiasm and passion for the game, but not the wrongdoing that is shown on social media. It shows who we are. I’ve never seen that in other countries. “ Akram added.
Misbah-ul-Haq resigned his head coach role while last month Waqar Younis resigned from the bowling coach position. Former Pakistani weirdo Saqlain Mushtaq and all-rounder Abdul Razzaq are the interim coaches who lead the Babar Azam-led squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
