Amir Sohail Pinpoints Campaigns to market Wasim Akram As Captain
Amir Sohail during an interview has blamed Wasim Akram for Pakistan’s 1996, 1999, and 2003 World Cup defeats. So, here is what Pakistan’s former captain had to mention.
Aamir said Wasim was made the captain of the national side within the last-minute till the 2003 World Cup and he feels that's an enormous reason for his or her failure to win a World Cup after 1992.
“It’s very simple. Put the 1992 World Cup to at least one side and mention the 1996 World Cup. In 1995, Ramiz Raja was captain. Saleem Malik was the captain before that, he was very successful and if he could have spent another year as captain then Wasim wouldn't are leading the side,” left-handed Aamir remarked.
The left-handed opening batsman further added,
“If you check out what happened till 2003, there was this persistence before every World Cup to get rid of the captain and put Wasim Akram therein role,” he claimed.
The 53-year-old Aamir also said that Wasim’s biggest contribution was to form sure Pakistan didn’t win a World Cup after 1992.
The former skipper lashed out at Akram while saying,
“Look, the most important contribution by Wasim Akram for Pakistan cricket was ensuring Pakistan doesn't win a World Cup after 92. Imran Khan should be very grateful to him, and he is, by awarding him the presidential award.
If he [Wasim] was sincere with Pakistan, we might have easily won 1996, 1999 and 2003 World Cups,” claimed Aamir.
Aamir who was a neighborhood of the 1992 World Cup-winning side, also said that this matter should be investigated.
“All of this drama happened for a reason. this could be investigated. The culprit behind all this should be delivered to the forefront,” Aamir, who played his last World Cup in 1996, concluded.
