Islamabad: Former Pakistan captain and legendary fast bowler Wasim Akram Tuesday rejected rumours he was vying for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman post, adding that he was “never interested in it”.
Responding to a report by the Indian publication Times of India, Wasim Akram rubbished reports he was trying to land the job.
“Please stop spreading such fake news. Get your sources right. TOI is one of India’s top and credible newspapers and such baseless news can only hurt that image,” he tweeted.
“PCB chairman’s post is a specialised job and I was never interested in it. Thank God, I am content where I am in my life,” he added.
In a subsequent tweet, Wasim Akram congratulated commentator Ramiz Raja for his nomination to the PCB board of governors, expressing the confidence that Raja can bring positivity to Pakistan cricket as “he has the vision and experience to achieve that”.
“Pakistan cricket needs a big lift and my support is with you,” tweeted the former captain.
