Wasim Akram slams ICC

Wasim Akram, the former Pakistan captain, has slammed the ICC for their policy in dealing with bowlers' illegal actions. "The ICC has just gone mad," he was quoted as saying in The Telegraph, a Kolkata based daily. "They are just there and come out and create problems for cricketers. They are more concerned with identifying the angles of chucking."

While on the offensive Akram had a go at the ICC's Anti Corruption Unit as well. "They [ACU] get a quarter of a million pounds every year and just sit there and send two guys all over the world who just attend matches everywhere. No reports, nothing."

Akram, who was speaking to reporters in Dubai during a promotional event, also bagged Shoaib Akhtar for his recent performances. "He [Shoaib] is just not a matchwinner anymore," said Akram. "He just comes and talks and plays one game, and then gets injured. He just thinks he is too good."

"He's the only one who praises himself all the time, which means there is something seriously wrong with him," said Akram. "He should let the ball talk. He talks before and then doesn't perform."
