In response while reacting strongly Wasim Akram said, “Please stop spreading such fake news. Get your sources right. TOI is one of India’s top and credible newspapers and such baseless news can only hurt that image. PCB chairman’s post is a specialized job and I was never interested in it. Thank God, I am content where I am in my life.”

On the other hand while commenting on the expected appointment of Ramiz Raja as the chairman, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Wasim said, “I am confident that Rams will bring a positive change in Pakistan cricket as he has the vision and experience to achieve that. Pakistan cricket needs a big lift and my support is with you.”
