Imran Khan must be very grateful to him and him by giving him a presidential award. If he [Akram] sincerely with Pakistan, we will easily win World Cups 96, 99 and 2003. All this drama happened for a reason. This must be investigated. The culprit behind all this must be brought to the forefront, “he added.
