Akram takes a dig at Miandad

Akram ignited the row recently when he told the media that some former players were responsible for damaging the country’s cricket and specifically questioned Miandad’s loyalty to the Pakistan Cricket Board.

“I have all my regards for Javed bhai. But then when I see him ridiculing the PCB after taking a salary every month, I wonder if he has any loyalty left in him?” he said.

Miandad, who is presently Director-General in the Board, was not amused with Akram’s comments. “One can’t become father of his father. If I open my lips then cricketers of the post 1996 era would not be able to speak a word,” he said. Miandad, however, said that he would try to approach Akram to have his version on the issue.

“If he (Akram) upholds the reported statement then I would also respond and let me tell you that after my response Wasim would not be able to even face me,” said Miandad.
Ironically although it was Miandad who discovered and provided Akram his first opportunity, the two have never really got along.
