Former Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram made shocking revelations in his biography, “Sultan: A Memoir’. Akram accused former Pakistan captain Saleem Malik of bullying him when the pacer was in the early stages of his career. The former pacer alleged that Malik used to treat him like a servant as he made him give massages, clean his shoes, and also wash his clothes. 

"He would take advantage of my junior status. He was negative, selfish and treated me like a servant. He demanded I massage him, he ordered me to clean his clothes and boots," read an excerpt from the biography.

Now, Saleem Malik has responded to the allegations. While he denied most of the accusations made by Akram against him, Malik gave a bizarre explanation about asking Akam to wash his clothes. Malik said that Akram had a washing machine facility and he didn’t have to wash the clothes by hand.

"I was trying to call him but he did not answer. I will ask him what the reason for writing of what he did," the former batter was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.  "It's not as if he was washing it by hand," Malik said. "If I was narrow minded, I would not have given him the chance to bowl. I will ask him why he wrote such remarks about me."

Notably, Akram had also revealed that he did not like when some younger members in the team invited the pacer to nightclubs. "I was angry when some of the younger team members in Ramiz, Tahir, Mohsin, Shoaib Mohammad invited me to nightclubs,” wrote Akram. 

Ramiz Raja was at slips because his father was a commissioner: Wasim Akram

The pacer also made a bold remark about the current PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja as he claimed that Raja was at slip because his father was a commissioner. 

“The first over the next day was delivered by Asif Faridi, a local quick; I was thrown the new ball for the second. I was in my fourth over when John Wright, New Zealand's captain, nicked to Ramiz at second slip. For all his batting kill, Ramiz was at slip for reasons of rank, because his father was a commissioner and because he'd attended Aitchison College - he dropped more than he caught, frankly,” he wrote.
