Shahid Afridi criticized his fellow former cricketer Wasim Akram for his handling of the Karachi Kings’ recent losing streak in the ongoing eighth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

During a TV show appearance, Afridi emphasized that Akram, who had taken on the responsibility of leading the Kings, should fulfill his obligations and devote more time to the team.

“Wasim bhai should give time to Karachi Kings if he has taken its responsibility. It’s not possible to lead the team from Australia. It’s part of professionalism, you should give your time,” he stressed, pointing out that it is impossible to effectively manage the team from Australia and that professionalism demands a commitment of time and effort.

In addition, Afridi acknowledged that Karachi Kings have a talented lineup and a good combination of players but are lacking confidence. He suggested that instead of parachuting in at this stage, Akram should have been with the team from the beginning of the season to provide better guidance and support. “I would suggest Wasim Bhai to be with the team. It’s not right to come and join an already prepared team,” he said.

Despite a change in leadership, with Imad Wasim returning as captain after Babar Azam was traded with Shoaib Malik from Peshawar Zalmi, the Kings have failed to turn their fortunes around. They have suffered consecutive losses against Peshawar Zalmi, Islamabad United, and Quetta Gladiators, putting them in a precarious position in the ongoing PSL 8 tournament.
