Pakistan are currently getting ready for the three-match home Test series against England, starting on 1 December 2022. The Men in Green recently lost the final of the 20-20 World Cup against England. However, Wasim Akram was seen analyzing all the World Cup games of his country in a show named “The Pavillion”.

However, he was an instrumental part of Pakistan’s famous 1992 50-over World Cup victory. Imran Khan was the skipper of that side. During his playing days, Imran Khan was known as a party animal. Now, Wasim Akram opened up about a weird incident   

“He ordered a pint of milk because he never drank in his life.” – Wasim Akram on Imran Khan

During his interaction on ‘The Grade Cricketer’ YouTube Channel, Wasim Akram said: “For me, it (partying) was fun. I was young and Imran said, ‘let’s go to a nightclub’. He called me in my room. I said, ‘yes skipper, I am ready’. We went to a nightclub in King’s Cross (London). He walked in and people recognized (him).”

Akram added: “He ordered a pint of milk because he never drank in his life. They got him milk in a nightclub! There was a queue of only girls to shake hands with Imran. I just said, ‘that’s awesome’,” Both Wasim Akram and Imran Khan played a pivotal role in Pakistan’s 1992 50-over World Cup winning campaign. In the final against England, Imran Khan scored 72 runs. On the other hand, Wasim Akram scored 33 runs off 18 balls. While he also took three wickets for 49 runs. 

Recently, Wasim Akram made headlines by confirming that he was addicted to cocaine after taking retirement from the game. Such a huge confession from the former pacer left fans all surprised. In his autobiography, Wasim Akram said: “The culture of fame in South Asia is all-consuming, seductive, and corrupting. I developed a dependence on cocaine. It started innocuously enough when I was offered a line at a party in England. My use grew steadily more serious, to the point that I felt I needed it to function. It made me volatile. It made me deceptive.”
