Wasim Akram slams PCB for the low crowd, PCB calls urgent meeting


Pakistan has faced a lot of neglect from the cricketing teams over the years. With the West Indies tour, the country would be happy to see international cricket return to its shores, however, they have plenty of worrying signs for them as the crowd turned out in very minimal numbers. According to the report, less than 4000 crowds were available for the 2nd T20 match. Pakistani Cricketer Wasim Akram has slammed the Pakistani Cricket Board for the less turnout of the crowds. In his tweet, Akram said that it is very concerning and he probably knows the reason but has left it to the fans to answer.

The PCB has called for an urgent meeting after the attendance remained low even in the second T20. And it is likely that they will allow fans to enter the stadium ODI series free of cost. Fans complained on social media that the entire process for entering the stadium was cumbersome and time-consuming. Wasim was expecting more crowd at the match but was disappointed and said “This is VERY concerning. This is not a backyard game this is an International Series”

Pakistan has been coming off a good form with their showcasing in the T20 World Cup where they reached the semi-finals. The men in green clean-swept the Bangladeshi side in both Tests and T20s recently which is why the PCB was expecting an enthusiastic group of supporters for the home series.

Even Shahid Afridi raised concerns on Twitter. He said that despite the turnout of small crowds is concerning as the Pakistan team has done very well in recent. In his own words, “Despite the return of international cricket in Pakistan and the consistently excellent performance of our team, the small number of spectators at the Karachi Stadium is certainly disappointing. But it is important to know why this it is and how it can be improved”

Pakistan have already won the T20 series against West Indies by winning the first two matches. The final T20 will be played on 16th December and the ODI series will start from 18th December.
