Akram has recently taken up a coaching assignment with Pakistan Cricket Board. He is training juniors in Karachi. Akram spends most of the time commentating on cricket from various venues around the world.

Reports say that Akram's car was caught in a traffic accident and an altercation followed. During this exchange, someone fired and a bullet hit the tyre of Akram's car.

Police said Akram was not the intended target but was lucky to escape the bullet. However, the 49-year-old legend reportedly said the car deliberately crashed into his vehicle. A driver was at the wheels of Akram's car.

"A car had hit my vehicle and when we asked him to pull over, he stepped out and opened fire. His appearance resembled that of an official," Akram has been quoted in the Dawn.com.
