Wasim Akram’s Controversial Remark After Pakistan’s ODI WC Loss Sparks Uproar

Former Pakistan cricketer Wasim Akram faced a backlash after he was caught using a controversial term ‘Cha*ar’ on live television following Pakistan’s defeat against Afghanistan in the ODI World Cup match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Akram’s Storied Cricket Career

A renowned figure in the world of cricket, Akram’s illustrious career spans 104 Test matches and 460 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) for Pakistan, during which he took 414 and 502 wickets, respectively. He was also known for his proficiency as a batsman, scoring over 6,000 runs in Test cricket and over 3,700 runs in ODIs.

The loss against Afghanistan marked Pakistan’s third consecutive defeat in the ODI World Cup, putting the 1992 champions in a precarious position. The team currently sits in the fifth position, but another loss, particularly against South Africa, could potentially seal their fate in the knock-out stages of the tournament.

Afghanistan’s Rise in the World Cup

Meanwhile, Afghanistan’s victory over Pakistan in the ODI World Cup marked their second win in the tournament, having previously defeated defending champions England in New Delhi. With a total of four points, Afghanistan has climbed to the sixth position in the mid-table standings, showcasing their growing prowess in international cricket.

During the match, Rahmat Shah’s outstanding performance, highlighted by his unbeaten 77 runs off 84 balls, played a pivotal role in Afghanistan’s victory. Shah’s strategic shot selections, particularly his remarkable straight six off Hasan Ali, propelled his team closer to the sought-after win, showcasing his exceptional skill and situational awareness on the field.
