Legend Wasim Akram to skip IPL 2017

Kolkata Knight Riders bowling coach and mentor Wasim Akram will miss the next IPL edition, the franchise announced through a press.

The former Pakistan captain has cited professional commitments and time constraints for his inability to be part of KKR for the upcoming season.

Wasim Akram said,



I have loved the camaraderie in KKR team and have enjoyed every opportunity to mentor the highly talented team over the years. I wish the team continued success.


This isn’t the first time Akram has missed an IPL edition. He had skipped the 2013 edition to spend more time with family.
