Tauqir Zia, the former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has slammed Wasim Akram, the former Pakistani bowler, and said that he shall not be passing his comments or giving lectures to younger cricketers when his own past is tinted.
The reliable reports suggested Zia saying regarding Wasim that he shall have been banned for a lifetime or the punishment for his tainted past shall have been much greater than the lifetime ban.
Wasim Akram shall not give lectures to young cricketers: Former PCB Chairman
According to Zia, the king of swing shall not be allowed to mentor the young cricketers when he himself doesn’t have a crystal clear past and shall accept the allegations against him made in the 1990s. The former cricketer also denied Justice Qayyum’s report accuses.
“Players with a tainted past should also not be nominated for any national awards,” Zia added.
The former chairman also talked about the way Wasim Akram’s career ended and discussed his insincerity with the team back in 2003 when ICC, due to an injury, sweep him down of captaincy, and Pakistan lost the World Cup.
Recently, his fellows, Aamer Sohail and Atta ur Rehman have also caught attention for commenting about the disgrace which according to them had been brought by Wasim to the team and he became the major reason why Pakistan lost three consecutive World Cups.
