Wasim Akram on Saleem Malik
Wasim Akram mentioned Saleem Malik in his biography Sultan : ‘A Memoir’. “He would take advantage of my junior status. He was negative, selfish and treated me like a servant.

I was angry when some of the younger team members in Ramiz, Tahir, Mohsin, Shoaib Mohammad invited me to nightclubs,” said Wasim Akram.
Saleem Malik on Wasim Akram
Earlier this year, Saleem Malik made some interesting comments about Wasim Akram on a local news channel.
“When I would go to Wasim to hand him the ball, he would snatch it from me, because he wasn’t talking to me. There was anger because I had become captain, whereas Wasim and Waqar wanted it.
“Both of them weren’t speaking to me, and yet we won the series. Wasim would snatch the ball from me and walk away, and I would walk along with him. Waz wasn’t talking to me,” said Saleem Malik.
“I would tell him: ‘Waz, you’re the No.1 bowler in the world.’ I am saying it to him while he’s walking to his run-up in anger. I said ‘You’re the No.1 bowler, you dismiss him, you don’t, it doesn’t matter to me. You have your own reputation,” he added.
