Pakistan opener who won the World Cup Aamer Sohail blamed former captain Wasim Akram for ensuring Men in Green did not win the World Cup in 1996, 1999 and 2003.
According to Sohail, after making Akram the captain of Pakistan for the 2003 World Cup at the last minute and staying with him because the leadership role jeopardized Pakistan’s cricket time.
Furthermore, Aamer named Ramiz Raja and Saleem Malik as better captains compared to Akram.
“Very simple. Put the 1992 World Cup on one side and talk about the 1996 World Cup. In 1995, Ramiz Raja was the captain. “Saleem Malik was the previous captain, he was very successful and if he could spend another year as captain then Wasim will not lead the team,” Sohail was quoted as saying by The Dawn.
“If you look at what happened until 2003, there is persistence before every World Cup to remove the captain and put Wasim Akram in that role,” Sohail added.
Next, Sohail, who plays below Imran Khan during the successful 1992 World Cup campaign, sarcastically slammed his former captain for giving Akram a presidential award.
“Look, Wasim Akram’s biggest contribution to Pakistani cricket is to make sure Pakistan does not win the World Cup after 92. Imran Khan must be very grateful to him, and him, by giving him a presidential award. If he [Wasim] sincerely with Pakistan, we will easily win the 1996, 1999 and 2003 World Cups. “
Sohail, best known for his courageous remarks during his post-retirement commentary, demanded an inquiry into Akram on the matter.
The latest hotfix case of Umar Akmal has opened a can of worms in the cricket fraternity in Pakistan.
“All this drama happened for a reason. This must be investigated. The culprit behind all this must be brought to the front, “concluded Sohail.
