In an ongoing drama about the leakage of chats between Pakistan skipper Babar Azam and PCB COO Salman Naseer, Waseem Badami accepted his mistake of making the chat public.

Babdami revealed that he and his team decided not to show the screenshots of the private chat on-air just an hour before the show, but the decision was changed at the last minute after a video message from PCB chief Zaka Ashraf.

“We have to make a lot of quick decisions when we produce a live show. A lot of people are involved in it too. Naturally, some decisions prove to be right and some wrong. As a team, we made a wrong decision, sharing Babar’s chat with a senior PCB official. In short, we were sitting together and deciding an hour before the show that we shouldn’t make a private chat public,” Badami said in a video posted on his official X account.

Badami revealed that Ashraf was the person who not only provided them with the screenshots but asked them to show them live.

“About five to seven minutes before the show, we received a clip where Zaka Ashraf is saying: ‘I am giving you this screenshot and I am asking you to show it live on screen’. Ashraf also gave us permission to share that. He was taking responsibility on TV; we thought we could share it. But it wasn’t the ideal decision. We conveniently forgot that Babar Azam’s consent was also important. I’m saying this on behalf of my team and the management. I am not proud of it, we are not proud of it. When something like this happens, you learn from it and try not to repeat the same in future,” he added.

What did Babar say to the PCB COO in the leaked chat?

The private chat between Babar and the PCB COO was broadcast on a local TV show.

The chat showed the official asking Babar if he called or texted the PCB chief during the World Cup.

“Babar, there’s also been news circulating on TV and social media that you have been calling Chairman and he’s not answering. Have you called him recently?” read the message allegedly sent by the PCB COO.

“Salam (greetings) Salman bhai. Maine to sir ko koi call nai ke [I haven’t called sir],” was Babar’s reply.
