Pakistani fast pitcher Wasim Akram has said he would not like to become the coach of the Pakistan cricket team. He said he didn’t like the comments coaches get from fans on social media and therefore wouldn’t like to become the coach of the Pakistan cricket team.
In a recent development, Misbah Ul-Haq and Waqar Younis were sacked as coaches of the Pakistan team and Matthew Hayden and Vernon Philander were appointed new coaches of the Pakistan team. These changes were made after Ramiz Raja became the head of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
“The bad behavior that’s shown on social media. It shows who we are. I’ve never seen this happen in other countries.” Akram told Cricket Pakistan.
“When you become a coach you have to give the team at least 200-250 days a year and that’s a lot of work. I don’t think I can handle so much work away from Pakistan, from my family,” Wasim Akram said. . added.
“I’m not a fool. I keep hearing and seeing on social media how people behave badly with their coaches and seniors. The coach is not the one who plays. It’s the players who play. . The coach can only help with the planning. So if the team loses, I don’t think the coach is as responsible as we as a nation hold him. “
“So I’m scared of that too because I can’t tolerate someone behaving badly with me. And we become like that. I love the people, their enthusiasm, and their passion for the game, but not the bad behavior that’s shown on social media. It shows what we are. I’ve never seen this happen in other countries. ” Akram added.
