CricketIf you get more money for playing only 4 overs…..: Wasim Akram asks young pacers to first class cricket

Srinagar: Former Pakistan captain and legendary pacer Wasim Akram has asked young Pakistan pacers to focus on First Class and play only couple of T20 leagues for easy money.

“If you get more money for playing only four overs, then this will be an easy decision. Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, and Wasim Jr. should play first-class cricket. Apart from PSL, they must play 1-2 leagues in a year, but also in long format matches. Pay attention; if we had time, we would have played 4-day matches,” Akram told Cricket Pakistan.

About PCB’s stance of roping in a foreign coach, Akram said, “If you had asked me, I would have told you that foreign coaches will not come; everyone is afraid that the contract will also end if the board changes. If you are not getting a foreign coach, get the services of a Pakistan, the reason for the decline in the performance graph of fast bowlers in T20 cricket”.

Reacting on Pakistan’s recent performance, Akram said ‘the fear of losing’ is hurting the Babar Azam-led side.

“The reason for this is the fear of losing. We have to lose and win, but we should not be afraid. I do not say that (prepare) Green Top pitches but must have a little bounce, batting for two days, should turn on the third and fourth day,” said Akram.
