Wasim Akram questions Wahab Riaz’s presence in team huddle, choice of cap he wore

Wasim Akram was surprised to see Wahab Riaz in Pakistan’s team huddle before their T20 World Cup game against India. Wahab retired from international cricket in August 2023 but is currently the chief selector and senior team manager.

The cap that Wahab wore is not the official Pakistan team cap for the T20 world cup.

His appearance in the huddle raised questions, especially when he wore a cap different from the official team hat. Pakistan’s T20 World Cup journey faced a setback after a surprising defeat to the USA in their opening match, making every subsequent game crucial.

Wahab was part of the panel which selected Pakistan’s T20 World Cup squad, and is serving as the senior team manager for the tour.

Mansoor Rana is listed as team manager, and it is not clear what the distinction is between the two roles. Gary Kirsten was appointed as head coach shortly before the tournament took place.
