Wasim Akram, Babar Azam to conduct online session to inspire women cricketers

Former Pakistan captain and a wizard with the ball, Wasim Akram, alongside a batsman who has been making the headlines regularly - Babar Azam - are set to deliver an online session for Pakistan's women's team.

The motive behind this session is to keep cricketers' spirits high and ensure they are in the right frame of mind as cricket activities come to a standstill because of COVID-19 crisis.

The refreshing sessions from two prolific players of different eras will involve 35 women cricketers who will be getting tips about strategizing and acclimatizing to different conditions.

The left-armer with 502 wickets will share his experiences and guide the youngsters about various facets of the game. Wasim had a similar session with the men's team a few days back.

Babar Azam's voluminous rise over the past few years have made everybody excited in the world of cricket and his ever-growing fan club marvels on his exceptional prowess. 

Babar sits atop in T20I rankings and has consolidated number three spot in ODI rankings respectively. He is becoming a consistent performer in the Test format as well and sits at five in the Test rankings. 

Babar will share what he has learned in his career and how he manages to score heaps of runs on a consistent basis.

“I have grown up watching videos of Wasim Akram and how he brought laurels for Pakistan with both bat and ball from some adverse of situations," said Aliya Riaz

"It is a great opportunity for me and I am eager to learn from the greats of the game and understand his work ethic which made him stand apart from the rest," she added. 

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is taking several initiatives to keep the players' morale high and focused on their goals as the country battles with the unprecedented health crisis that has confined people to their homes.
