Karachi Kings’ president, Wasim Akram categorically stated that he did show any obscene gesture to anyone after Lahore Qalandars’ win against Karachi Kings in a game played on February 16 at Dubai.
Talking about the whole controversy that took place after the match, Akram revealed that a man from the opposite camp was constantly passing comments against him, players and the team owner.
“If anyone will misbehave with my team or my owner, I will not tolerate it,” said Wasim Akram while talking to ARY News. “However, I did not give any obscene signal, I am around 53 years old, I am vastly experienced, can I do any obscene gesture to any girl or woman?”
Akram further cleared that he was looking for that man and he expected the management of that team to stop that person from giving such statements about the opposite team.
“If someone will misbehave in our box, my owner will stop him from doing that, he will ask him to enjoy cricket, to celebrate and will restrain him from passing comments about individuals,” he said.
According to the former fast bowling great, even the head coach of Karachi Kings, Mickey Arthur asked him about the man who talked indecent about him for straight 45 minutes.
Wasim Akram also questioned why the boxes of both the teams are given at the same place, there are heated moments in cricket matches which can create forgettable moments.
“Do not give boxes to both the teams so close,” suggested Akram.
Moreover, the former captain emphasized that if there is confusion, one should ask him about what happened there instead of starting propaganda on social media and the mainstream media.
The 52-year-old echoed the words of Karachi Kings’ owner, Mr Salman Iqbal who said that Pakistan Super League is for Pakistan and whoever wins the tournament, it will be a win for the whole country.
