Former Pakistan captain and legendary fast bowler Wasim Akram has been in dismay after an Indian news outlet was propagating fake news related to him.

Indian publication Times of India, in a now-deleted post on Twitter claimed that Wasim Akram had been vying for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman post.

Responding to the propaganda, Wasim Akram in a tweet said, “Please stop spreading such fake news. Get your sources right. TOI is one of India’s top and credible newspapers and such baseless news can only hurt that image. PCB chairman’s post is a specialized job and I was never interested in it. Thank God, I am content where I am in my life.”

In his other tweet, Akram congratulated former cricketer who turned commentator Ramiz Raja for becoming the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board.

“Congratulations to @iramizraja on being nominated as BOG member by PM to being PCB chairman I am confident that Rams will bring a positive change in Pakistan cricket as he has the vision and experience to achieve that. Pakistan cricket needs a big lift and my support are with you,” he tweeted.
