An Urdu newspaper got confused between former cricketer Wasim Akram and Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar. The newspaper published the picture of Wasim Akram instead of Waseem Akhtar along with the news story on latter’s statement.

Taking to the Twitter, Wasim Akram posted the snapshot of the news story on his account.  Wasim Akram wrote: “I thought we cleared this up, guys. You had one job to do.” Wasim Akram, however, did not share the name of the newspaper in his Twitter post.

A Twitter user commenting on the post shared a snapshot of another newspaper that published the picture of former cricketer Moin Khan with a news story on the 5th death anniversary of legendary actor Moin Akhtar.

His wife Shaniera Akram mocking Akram’s twitter post wrote,” You are the mayor of Karachi again? Why are the wives always the last to know…”

Wasim Akram’s post intrigued his Indian followers since unable to read Urdu in the snapshot of the news story, they asked if Wasim Akram had become the mayor of Karachi.

The Pakistani followers then clarified them about the mistake of the newspaper. They, however, appreciated Wasim Akram and suggested that he has all the capabilities to become the mayor of the city.

“What does it say? from the replies — I can only speculate — are you the new mayor of Karachi? please tell me, the suspense is torturing me!!! BTW – I always saw myself with the in-swinging yorker, too bad I’m right-handed … I miss you :(“, said a Twitter user from India.

Wasim Akram is not going to be mayor Karachi any time soon but he is anticipated to join the team Karachi Kings in the upcoming fourth edition of Pakistan Super League. He was previously associated with Multan Sultans and Islamabad United.
