Pakistan should not go to India amid threats: Waseem

KARACHI: Former captain of Pakistan Waseem Akram on Saturday said Pakistan should not go to India for World Cup Twenty20, if they had security threats, Aaj News reported.

“I am ready to serve Pakistan cricket team, given that Pakistan Cricket Board asks for it. Due to busy schedule all the year, I have to do all the works with planning,” he said while talking to media in Karachi.

Replying to a query over poor performance of the national team in Asia Cup 2016, he said there was visible lack of strategy in the team. Unless team was united, the team could not perform well.

To a query, Waseem said Shahid Afridi was a best option for the team. He said there was no use of forming inquiry committee over poor performance in Asia Cup.

“It is not the right time to take team players on task. Players should be taken into confidence at this time when a big event is just around the corner,” he said.
