Wasim Akram was stopped twice by security to have his accreditation checked while commentating for Fox Cricket.

“He said, ‘Show me your accreditation’, and I did,” Akram told Fox Cricket.

“He said, ‘No show it again, I didn’t see your picture.’ So I said, ‘Here we go again buddy’.”

Michael Vaughan, who is also a part of the commentary panel for the ongoing series, asked: “So you’re just going to wear your card all day now?”
