The PCB’s Twitter handles and YouTube channel frequently upload videos of speeches of captain Babar, mentor Matthew Hayden, and coach Saqlain Mushtaq. However, former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram is against this practice.
“If I were Babar Azam, I would grab the guy recording the videos. Sometimes the talks are personal and should stay inside the dressing room. The social media team can record while players interact with fans or are giving interviews. I haven’t seen any other doing what Pakistan have done in the ICC T20 World Cup. They should cut it down,’ Akram said on A-Sports.
“There are recordings taking place all the time. If I want to convey a message to the players and don’t want it to come out in the open, who would stop it as someone is recording the entire conversation? So, these records guys will have to be stopped.”
In one of the videos, Babar suggested Mohammad Haris to stay till the end instead of getting out. Haris was dismissed against Bangladesh without completing the task. Akram wants that some moments should stay between the players.
