He also reminded the players that the former captains, Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram represented Pakistan with broken bones.”They represented Pakistan with full commitment while suffering from injuries. Learn to challenge yourself in life to become a great cricketer, you will move towards betterment when you will start asking questions from yourself,” he added.

He also cited the example of former captain Imran Khan who is now the Prime Minister of Pakistan.”Honesty and planning in his life have led him to the post of Prime Minister,” he concluded.

It must be noted here that the PCB has given chance to current cricketers to interact with their on-field heroes. Recently, Javed Miandad, Wasim Akram, Mushtaq Ahmed, Shoaib Akhtar, Mohammad Yousuf, and Rashid Latif interacted with the current players.
