Teams will run behind Pakistan if they perform well – Wasim Akram

Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram has once again expressed his disappointment on New Zealand, England’s cancellation of the Pakistan tour. The veteran of the game is not happy with the way the two nations have treated Pakistan in recent weeks. While New Zealand refused to play in Pakistan just a few hours before the first ODI, England cancelled the tour citing bio-bubble fatigue as the reason.

Wasim Akram believes if Babar Azam’s perform well in the upcoming T20 World Cup, the attitude of the teams will change.

“I know you’re all very disappointed with New Zealand and England when they cancelled their tours. Especially New Zealand, for cancelling it at the last moment. I am equally disappointed, equally down and equally sad. But life has to go on. Like our chairman Ramiz Raja said, support Pakistan. The team they have picked for the World Cup, let’s support them for once,” Akram said in a video uploaded by Cricket Pakistan.

“We will criticize them (Pakistan team) later if the need arises and will figure out solutions too. But right now, we all need to come together as a unit and support out team. If teams don’t want to come, let them not. But if our side performs well, teams all around the world will run behind Pakistan. So all the best, Pakistan team. We are all behind you,” Akram added.
