On Thursday, former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram played down his heated interaction with Babar Azam during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 match. However, a clip of Akram having a heated chat with Babar went viral online, and the fans were not happy with the Akram treated the current Pakistan skipper.
Akram, who is the president of the Karachi Kings franchise in PSL 2022, to issue a clarification on the entire episode.
“Hello! Surprised to see reactions to my talking to Babar at the boundary last night. What I was saying was, ‘why our bowlers are not bowling yorkers or slower ones offside off.’ Nothing else. Babar is a wonderful boy and has tried his best. And what he wants for dinner,” Akram wrote on Twitter.
After Wasim was furious with the Karachi Kings’ bowlers, Babar was listening with full attention.
Karachi lost the eighth consecutive match in the ongoing tournament after failing to defend 29 runs from the last 2 overs against Multan Sultans.
With their play-offs hopes over, Karachi Kings will be looking to win the remaining two games against Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators on Friday and Sunday.
