Wasim Akram reveals why he doesn't want to coach Pakistan

Wasim Akram, the former Pakistani fast bowling legend, has explained why he hasn't or won't coach the national cricket team. Akram has said that he will not be able to give the time that a full-time coaching job demands while talking to 'Cricket Corner' on Cricket Pakistan.

"When you become the coach, you need to give at least 200 to 250 days a year to the team and that's a lot of work. I don't think I can manage so much work away from Pakistan, from my family. And as it is, I spend time with most of the players in the PSL, they all have my number and they keep asking for advice," Akram said.

Fans' misbehaviour was also cited as a reason for Akram's decision not to coach the national team.

"I am not a fool. I keep on hearing and seeing on social media how people misbehave with their coaches and seniors. The coach isn't the one playing. The players are the ones playing. The coach can only help with the planning. So, if the team loses, I don't think the coach is as responsible or accountable as we hold him as a nation."

"So, I'm afraid of that as well, because I can't tolerate anyone misbehaving with me. And we are becoming like that. I love the people, their enthusiasm and passion for the game, but not the misbehaviour that is shown on social media. It shows what we are. I have never seen this happen in other countries." Akram added.
