Islamabad, Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram is among the fastest bowlers in the cricket world so far. Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram’s recently released autobiography, “Sultan A Memoir”, has shocking details of how a senior player washed his clothes and utensils when he was new to the team, from his approach to inducting new cricketers into the team.
In his autobiography, Wasim has said shockingly that the influence of big people is necessary to make a place in the Pakistani team. Wasim, who started his international career in 1984, is considered a fast bowler and master blast cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has also praised him. Wasim Akram, a left-arm fast bowler, has played 104 Tests and 357 international matches. He has been counted among the greatest players ever.
But the allegation of match-fixing hurt him a lot. In his autobiography, Wasim has also mentioned personal stories like his parents’ divorce in his childhood to being hungry for days due to poverty in Mosal. In his autobiography, he praised former captain Imran Khan and also wrote that he learned a lot from him.
Wasim’s autobiography has also created controversy, as he has written about several cricketers, Salil Malik, a middle-order batsman, taking advantage of Wasim’s junior status and treating him like a servant, from giving him massages to washing his clothes to cleaning his boots. Wasim has written in his autobiography that it was done. Salim Malik had said against him that every hotel he stayed in had a washing machine for laundry.
