The Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 season is currently going on and Karachi Kings, led by Pakistan’s national team captain Babar Azam has been going through a tough time. Babar, who made headlines after their stunning semi-final show in the ICC T20 World Cup last year, has been going through a tough time too as his team is now at the bottom of the points table.
Karachi Kings lost to Multan Sultans on Wednesday night, despite posting a decent competitive total on the board. During Multan’s chase, Karachi Kings’ president, the legendary bowler Wasim Akram, was seen involved in an animated discussion with the captain Babar Azam. And, the video soon became viral on social media with several Pakistan cricket fans looking unhappy with the way Akram was seen speaking to Azam as well.

We should keep this @wasimakramlive as faar as possible from our cricketers. These old legends are toxic people, can’t do job professionally and always ready to put blame on others. Better bowler and better coach is different thing. #qayyumReport

However, later, Wasim Akram took to Twitter and clarified what was the discussion about. “Hello ! Surprised to see reactions on 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 ???? 1/2,” Akram wrote.

Meanwhile, Karachi Kings’ knock-outs hopes are now over and the team will try to forget this season quickly too. Babar Azam led Pakistan’s next assignment will be the much-awaited home series against Australia as well.
