Wasim Akram suspects conspiracy against Kamran, Rana

Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram feels that the match-fixing slur on Kamran Akmal and Rana Naved might just be a conspiracy.

Wasim Akram was leaving to India to take over as a bowling consultant for IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders, during his departure he told reporters that he was shocked to read reports that Kamran Akmal and Rana Naved were under investigation by the PCB for match-fixing.

"I know this is not true because these players are not involved in this menace at all", he added. Later, he said "There has always been a conspiracy to link our players to this scandal to spoil the image of Pakistan cricket which is sad. In Pakistan it happens regularly and it disturbs our players a lot".
