With a touch of humour, Akram then addressed people from Pakistan and India who might wonder if he eats ‘Nihari’ and ‘Naan.’

He shared that he does not eat those traditional Pakistani dishes and rather opts for a healthier start to the day.

Fuelled by his morning meal, Akram heads to the gym, where he channels his energy into rigorous workouts, maintaining his exceptional physical condition.

Following Pakistan’s disappointing loss against Afghanistan in the ICC World Cup 2023, Akram didn’t mince words, highlighting concerns about the players’ fitness levels and lack of regular fitness tests.

“It was embarrassing today,” said Wasim. “Just look at their fitness levels. We have been pointing this out for two weeks that these players have not had fitness tests for two years.”

“Their faces look enormous,” he added. “They seem to be consuming eight kilos of mutton every day. There has to be a test at some level.”

As Pakistan’s highest wicket-taker in both Test and ODI cricket, Akram’s illustrious career spans 18 years, marked by numerous accolades and memorable performances.

His pivotal role in Pakistan’s triumph in the 1992 World Cup, where he was named Player of the Match in the final, solidified his status as a cricketing icon.

Today, Wasim Akram continues to contribute to the sport as a respected commentator and cricket analyst, lending his insights and expertise to ICC events and bilateral series worldwide.
