ICC Pulls Wasim Akram And Shoaib Akhtar Out Of Ind-SA Commentary Team

Published on 20 October, 2015 at 4:23 pm By

Following Shiv Sena’s protest at BCCI’s office this past Monday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) decided to pull Pakistani commentators and former cricketers Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar, out of the commentary team for the last two one day international (ODI) matches between India and South Africa.

The final two matches are scheduled to be played at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on October 25 and Chennai’s Chidambaram Stadium stadium on October 22nd.

The move was made in the wake of Shiv Sena threat against Pakistan cricketers and officials that would have participated in any activity in Mumbai.

Earlier in the day Pakistan umpire Aleem Dar was also pulled out from officiating in the remaining two matches of the one-day series as Shiv Sena had directly threatened to take action against Dar if he was present in the match.



On Monday morning more than 200 Shiv Sena workers had stormed into BCCI’s Mumbai Office and forced BCCI chief Shashank Manohar to cancel his talks with PCB chief Shaharyar Khan which were scheduled to take place later that day.

While no direct threats were made against Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar, according to DNA the two pulled out on their own.
