2

The Manchester airport authorities have been heavily criticized by the angry cricket fans for being disrespectful and rude to the Pakistan’s cricket legend Wasim Akram.

On Tuesday, the former fast bowler left high and dry at the airport after the staff mortified him and ordered to take out his insulin from its case and dump into a plastic bag.

Akram took to Twitter to share the humiliating experience, said it made him feel embarrassed.

“Very disheartened at Manchester airport today, I travel around the world with my insulin but never have I been made to feel embarrassed. I felt very humiliated as I was rudely questioned & ordered publicly to take my insulin out of its travel cold-case & dumped in to a plastic bag,” Akram tweeted.

That was completely unnecessary and it’s not a CAA requirement. I feel sorry that you had to go through this. You are a legend and will always be.
