Former Pakistan captain and bowling legend Wasim Akram’s autobiography, Sultan: A Memoir, has been released, and it has revealed several sensational incidents related to cricket in the sub-continent country.
Akram has written about Ramiz Raja, the current head of the PCB. The two played together between 1985 and 1997 and were part of the 1992 World Cup-winning team.
Akram said Ramiz used to stand in the slips because his father was a police commissioner. Akram further said that Ramiz would drop catches more than he took.
“During the Test match against New Zealand, the first over of the day was bowled by Asif Faridi, a local quick. I bowled the second. I was in my fourth over of the day when John Wright, New Zealand’s captain, nicked to Ramiz at second slip, who dropped the catch. He was in the slips because of his father, who was a commissioner, and because he’d attended Aitchison College. He dropped more than he caught,” he wrote.
