Wasim Akram needs no introduction. The former cricketer turned commentator and a social figure who has been recognized internationally and is still relevant despite retiring years ago. The cricketer was hailed as one of the best fast bowlers who could ball at a significant pace and is now one of the most recognized voices in cricket as a commentator. He has been cast in endorsements for numerous local and multinational brands considering his fan following and recognition in Pakistan.
What Did Wasim Akram Do And How Did He Give Away His Number?
The former captain of the Pakistani cricket team updated his Facebook status where he asked people to call him. This comes as a surprise considering how well-known Wasim Akram is. Posting his number on Facebook like that and asking millions of people to contact you is an open invitation to ask people to explode your phone with obnoxious calls and texts.
As soon as he posted, the commenters took the opportunity to make fun of Wasim Akram’s most-frequent remarks that he makes as a commentator during a cricket match.
The comments poked fun at the fact that Wasim Akram often claims he had a chat with players in the morning before the match and guides them about how to perform on the field, considering he himself had a remarkable career on the field, which instantly became an internet-meme.
