“I do not believe I should have been treated differently from anyone else. I just believe there should be a standard of care when dealing with all people. I understand there are proper safety precautions but that doesn’t mean people should be humiliated whilst undergoing them,” he said.

An important member of the 1992 World Cup-winning team, Akram has 414 wickets to his name in 104 Tests and 502 ODI wickets in 356 matches.

The 53-year old was part of the commentary team at the just-concluded World Cup in England and Wales.
