Pakistan great Wasim Akram has revealed that he is in regular contact with captain Babar Azam.
This comes after Azam was traded from the Karachi Kings to the Peshawar Zalmi ahead of this year’s Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Wasim, who is the Kings’ president, has already insisted that there is no rift between him and the 28-year-old.
Instead, the Sultan of Swing stressed that the two of them talk to each other on a regular basis.
“I keep talking to Babar regularly,” he told Cricket Pakistan.
Azam is now captaining Pakistan in their white-ball series against New Zealand and made scores of 9 and 101 not out in the first two T20Is.
The third match will be played on Monday in Lahore.
