KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain and swing king Wasim Akram has emphasised the need for improvement and consistency in the country’s domestic cricket structure.

Speaking to the media, the ‘Swing ka Sultan’ expressed disappointment at the shortcomings in Pakistan’s first-class cricket set-up.

“It’s been 70 years since Pakistan was created, yet we still don’t have a proper structure in domestic and first-class cricket here,” he said.

Hailing Pakistan’s performance in the Champions Trophy, Akram said the team needs to continue delivering such performances with consistency.

“We need to invest in domestic cricket. Consistent performances will come when we invest in our domestic structure.”

The former captain said it was a good sign that so many Pakistan cricketers are playing T20 cricket in England. He added that it would be even better if the players can get to experience England’s first-class cricket as well.
