Akram unaware of PCB's offer

Karachi, Jun 19: Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram has said he was not aware of the Pakistan Cricket Board's announcement which stated that the former captain was appointed as a mentor to budding cricketers, during a camp scheduled to start this week.

PCB on the other hand, had announced that they wanted the legendary seamer to mentor the young and talented bunch of cricketers during the camp that is scheduled to start from Wednesday, June 20, according to reports.

"We hope Wasim will take out some time to mentor the talent as his experience will be very helpful," Alam was quoted as saying by the Express Tribune.

Meanwhile, the legendary pacer who is currently in UK, has said that he was not aware of PCB's plans and confirmed that he wasn't contacted by the officials of the Pakistan Cricket Board regarding the issue.

"I have no idea as no one has contacted me from the PCB yet. I'm ready if properly invited. I'd love to work with young talent. I think I can be really helpful but the PCB has to ask me first so that I can work around my schedule" Wasim said.

The 46 year old former captain, has been unable to offer help to country nor its baord, due to a few disagreements with the board and its officials.

While the board has cited Akram's busy schedule as reason for not roping him but Akram has maintained the same as he has repeatedly said that he would love to work with Pakistan players provided the board extends a proper invitation.
