A day after Pakistan suffered a loss against India, former Pakistani cricketer Aamir Sohail claimed that World Cup-winning former captain, Imran Khan is responsible for the current abysmal state of the sport in the country, Times of India reported.
“I want to say clearly here and for once we must face the truth that Imran is responsible for the state of affairs in our cricket,” Sohail said.
Sohail was addressing Pakistan’s latest defeat to India in a Champions Trophy match on a news channel, with fellow guests Zaheer Abbas and Younus Khan.
“Imran damaged Pakistan cricket by encouraging our bowlers to tamper with the ball. This has led to a culture where we can’t produce good new ball bowlers or quality openers,” Sohail added.
