Babar Azam, Pakistan's T20 captain, has had a difficult time leading the Karachi Kings club in the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022. In Pakistan's T20 League, the Karachi Kings have lost eight consecutive matches and are already out of contention for the playoffs this season.

Wasim Akram, a former Pakistan captain and cricket hero, is the franchise's president. During a recent PSL 2022 match against Multan Sultans at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, he appeared to have an intense argument with Azam.

The massive brawl between Akram and Azam quickly became a topic of conversation on social media. During the just finished PSL 2022 match between Multan Sultans and Pakistan cricket supporters were convinced that Azam was 'scolded' by Akram on the boundary line.

The renowned former left-arm pacer has finally clarified his side of the heated conversation with Azam. Akram commented that he was surprised to see the responses on social media regarding his conversation with Azam at the boundary. The former Pakistan captain explained that he was only asking why aren’t bowlers bowling yorkers or slower ones offside off. He remarked that Azam is a fantastic young man who has given his all. Akram also added that he asked Azam what he’d like for dinner.

Saqlain Mushtaq, Pakistan's head coach, has praised all-format captain Babar Azam's leadership qualities ahead of next month's historic home series against Australia. Azam has led Karachi Kings to eight straight T20 defeats in the Pakistan Super League and has only two half-centuries to his name.

Mushtaq told the press on Thursday that Babar Azam is the world's best player, and he has excelled for Pakistan. He commented that all six groups in the PSL are extremely good, but the squad with the most momentum will win. Karachi Kings, sadly, was unable to maintain its momentum.

Mushtaq added that Azam is a world-class cricketer and a strong leader who can bowl both spin and quick. He praised Azam for scoring a lot of runs for Pakistan, and every cricket specialist on the planet knows who he is.
