Wasim Akram’s Leaked Video: Was He Talking About Cricket Team Or PTI Govt?
Former cricketer Wasim Akram is in the spotlight following a ‘leaked’ video of his in which he is talking about bringing a change, causing people to question if his comments were directed at the cricket team or the government.
On Thursday, a video of the former star bowler went viral on social media in which he was criticising someone’s performance and talking about a solution to the issue.
In the video, he can be heard saying that old methods had been overused, adding that to bring change, one had to change their methods, mindset and do something innovative.
He further said, “It is beyond comprehension that they make big claims, but their performance is zero.”
The video concluded with Akram saying that he had thought of a solution to change the situation. Interestingly, former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar also tweeted about the video, in which he said he supported Wasim Akram’s leaked video.

One user questioned if we were about to be exposed to something new in the cricket team.

Yet there were others who were confused about who the word ragra was targeted at.
Okay, I don't even know who Wasim is talking about but I am still pro ragra. I mean look at what they have done to cricket. Cricket ki e baat ho rahi hai na Wasim bhai?#WasimPressConference

There were those who said that the video was not leaked, but part of a publicity stunt for an upcoming programme or campaign.
Wasim Akram's video is a staged video and by no means 'leaked' as being claimed. The body language of Wasim Akram suggests that he is a willing actor in this video which is meant for some pro government campaign. I think #WasimPressConference is a continuation of that campaign.

I hope it doesn't turn out to be a fake and low advertising stunt. #WasimPressConference
