Former Legendary pacer Wasim Akram is very disappointed with the way Ramiz has taken the decisions and he suggested that Ramiz should assess the employee’s performance before making decisions.

Former Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram is not happy with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja by his decision-making. 

Akram believes that he should have observed the employee in the first couple of months then he should make the decisions.

“Whenever a new CEO or President joins an organization, he assesses the performance of employees for the first 90 days or two months. After that, the process of changes starts as it is the prerogative of the person in charge. However, here [PCB] it has happened earlier than usual,”

said Akram while speaking on A Sports. 

He also talked about leaving the former Pakistan coaches Misbah ul Haq and Waqar Younis who had stepped down from their respective roles after Ramiz’s appointment. 

They were appointed in September 2019 and still had a year each left in their contracts. 

Former Australian opener Mathew Hayden and former South African pacer Vernon Philander had been assigned to the Pakistan cricket team coaching staff after their resignation. 

“Anyways bygones are bygones, but I know that these guys [Misbah and Waqar] worked hard,”

he added when questioned about Misbahul Haq and Waqar Younis’s resignation as Pakistan’s coaches before the start of the T20 World Cup

He also heavily criticized the media for their biased opinions and added that it is not possible to make every person happy. 

He further stated that players shouldn’t care about the media talks and not bother about anything else. 

“As far as media is concerned, I’m sorry to say that some people become personal. Sometimes the reason why they are against a player is that he might have refused to give them an interview, that’s it,”

he said. 

“It’s not possible to make everyone happy so there is no point listening to social media. Just do your job, the right, and fair job, and don’t worry about anything else,”

he concluded.
