Wasim Akram, a legendary fast bowler, has made a surprising disclosure in which he claims that his old teammate Saleem Malik treated him like a servant when they were both playing for Pakistan in the early stages of Wasim Akram’s career.
According to Wasim Akram, who made his first appearance for Pakistan on the international stage in 1984, senior colleague Malik forced him to give him a massage and clean his clothes and boots. The information was disclosed by Wasim Akram in his biography titled “Sultan: A Memoir.”
“He would take advantage of the fact that I was his junior. He was pessimistic and self-centered, and he treated me like a slave. He insisted that I give him a massage, and he gave me orders to clean his clothes and boots “have a look at this snippet from the biography.
“When some of the more junior members of the squad, like Ramiz, Tahir, Mohsin, and Shoaib Mohammad, asked me to nightclubs, I became enraged.
“From 1992 through 1995, Akram was a member of the team that Malik captained, and during that time, there were rumours that the two players did not get along.
Malik, on the other hand, refuted the charges and claimed that Akram had made them up in order to sell his book.
“I attempted to give him a call, but he did not pick up the phone. I shall inquire of him as to the inspiration behind the things he has written, “Malik is reported to have said this by Pakistani media outlets.
“If I had a limited mind, I would not have let him to bowl because I thought he would not do well. I shall inquire of him the reason behind why he wrote such comments against me.”
