Wasim Akram shares ‘humiliating’ experience at Manchester airport

MANCHESTER: Former Pakistan captain and bowling legend Wasim Akram shared about his ‘humiliating’ experience at the Manchester airport.

“Very disheartened at Manchester airport today, I travel around the world with my insulin but never have I been made to feel embarrassed,” shared Akram in a tweet post.

“I felt very humiliated as I was rudely questioned and ordered publicly to take my insulin out of its travel cold-case and dumped in to a plastic bag,” he added.


Akram was first diagnosed with Type I diabetes in 1997, back when he was the captain of the Pakistan team and was at the peak of his cricketing career. He has been taking insulin injections multiple times a day ever since.

The bowling legend was part of the ICC’s commentary team for the Cricket World Cup 2019, which hosts England won on July 14.
