Wasim Akram Outraged Over PCB’s Exclusion of Imran Khan from Independence Day Video

Renowned cricketer Wasim Akram has publicly expressed his disappointment and anger at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for their decision to exclude Imran Khan from a celebratory video released on the 77th Independence Day. The video, which was intended to highlight the achievements of the Pakistani cricket team, sparked controversy due to the notable absence of Khan.

Akram took to Twitter to voice his shock and disapproval of the PCB’s decision. He stated that he was taken aback when he watched the brief clip on the history of Pakistan cricket, which inexplicably left out the contributions of Imran Khan. Akram, a former captain himself, emphasized that Khan’s contributions to Pakistani cricket are unparalleled and that he played a pivotal role in transforming the team into a formidable unit during his tenure.

The omission of Khan, who is not only a legendary figure in cricket but also a significant player in Pakistani politics, led to a wave of criticism against the PCB. Fans accused the board of succumbing to political pressure and bias, thereby excluding Khan from the video.

In his tweet, Akram further highlighted that Imran Khan is regarded as an icon by cricket enthusiasts worldwide. He suggested that the PCB should rectify its mistake by removing the controversial video and issuing an apology to Khan.

The incident has put the PCB in a difficult position, with severe backlash coming from various quarters. Amidst this controversy, it is worth noting that Wasim Akram is set to be part of the commentary panel for the upcoming Asia Cup 2023, which will be held in Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
