Wasim Akram mocks newspaper for confusing him with Karachi mayor


Former Pakistani cricketer and bowling legend Wasim Akram mocked an Urdu newspaper which used his picture for a news story about Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar.

The news on a statement by Karachi mayor about Karachi Metropolitan Corporation’s (KMC) agreement with government has a smiling photo of the former left-arm pacer.

Tweeting the newspaper’s clipping, Wasim Akram wrote: “I thought we cleared this up, guys. You had one job to do.”

Replying to the tweet, a social media user posted an old error made by an Urdu newspaper of using former cricketer Moin Khan’s picture on a story about the death anniversary of legendary Pakistani actor Moin Akhtar. “You’ve still a few miles to go,” the user wrote.
