Former captains Wasim Akram and Mohammad Hafeez opened up about players’ activities in the dressing during the rain break.

Akram, while responding to a question in the A-Sports show ‘The Pavilion,’ shed light on what players used to do in rain break during his playing days.

“I am not aware of the mindset now but phones are not allowed inside the dressing room and players usually talk during the break,” he said. “In my playing days, we used to play cards or some other games.”

Hafeez, who recently served as the director of Pakistan’s men’s cricket team, reflected on the reasons for not allowing phones in the dressing room and shared what players generally do inside the dressing room during rain break.

“I think it is good [to not allow phones in the dressing room] for the game and also for the players to stay away from the hurdles of Anti-Corruption,” the former all-rounder said.

“There is a bit of frustration [during rain] because as a player, you always want to have a game. It is tough when the break is longer but if it is short, mostly they talk with each other and have a cup of coffee or tea,” he added.

The discussion was followed by two washed-out matches in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 9 at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

The bottom-ranked Lahore Qalandars was slated to square off against Peshawar Zalmi, while the home team Islamabad United was set to face Quetta Gladiators.
