Wasim Akram criticizes Indian newspaper for spreading ‘fake news’

Karachi: Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram has reprimanded an Indian newspaper for spreading fake news that he would be interested in running as chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Earlier today, Times of India (TOI), one of India’s top newspapers posted this news and in response to the tweet, 55-year-old Wasim reminded them to stop spreading fake news and make amends to their sources.

“TOI is one of India’s best and credible newspapers and such baseless news can only damage that image,” he wrote.

Sultan of Swing added that he was never interested in it.” The position of chairman of PCB is specialist work and I was never interested in it. Thank God I’m happy where I am in my life,” he tweeted.

On the other hand, he congratulated former cricketer Ramiz Raja on his nomination as a member of the Board of Directors (BoG).

“I am confident that Rams will bring positive change to Pakistani cricket as he has the vision and experience to make it happen. Pakistani cricket needs a big lift and my support is with you.”

It should be noted that PCB BoG will elect the 36th chairman of the board on September 13 at the Gaddafi stadium.
