Former Pakistan pacer Ata-ur-Rehman has blamed his former national teammate Wasim Akram for destroying his career.
“You ask Akram what he said during the inquiry against allegations of match-fixing,” Rehman said in a video.
“I won’t remain silent till he tells the world that I was speaking the truth all along during the investigation.” he added.
Earlier, former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Khalid Mehmood had said that harsh punishments would have been handed to the players who were named in the match-fixing inquiries if the claimants had stuck to their statements in the inquiry.
Rehman went on to say that former batsmen Rashid Latif and Aamir Sohail, who he believes claim to be highly patriotic and pious, were well aware that Akram was involving in match-fixing.
“Akram played a Test match under their leadership in South Africa. Had he made amends by then?” he asked.
Rehman accused the duo of playing politics.
“They only work to serve themselves and they don’t care about the country. They play politics and blackmail others.” he concluded.
