"Very disheartened at Manchester airport today, I travel around the world with my insulin but never have I been made to feel embarrassed. 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," the former Pakistan captain tweeted.

 

Akram, who has taken 414 Test wickets in 104 matches, has played County cricket in the UK. The former left-arm pace bowler, a star of Pakistan's victorious team at the 1992 World Cup, was a part of the commentary team in the 2019 edition of the tournament.
