New Delhi: Lack of mutual trust among cricketers is the reason why players' associations have never succeeded in India and Pakistan, says legendary Pak pacer Wasim Akram.
"We have a strange culture in India and Pakistan. Players just can't trust each other. I think it is the only reason why players' associations have not worked," Akram said.
Akram said the players are also scared of offending the administrators in their respective countries.
The former captain feels Pakistan badly needs a players' body but it would be quite a task for current skipper Younus Khan to succeed in forming one.
"In our part of the world, it is a must. In India, the BCCI is quite supportive of the players. In Pakistan, it is not. If Younis succeeds, nothing like it," Akram told 'ESPN-STAR'.
