LAHORE: Former captain of Pakistan cricket team Wasim Akram expressed hope that he will sign the deal as consultant with IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) soon.

Talking to Geo News here, Akram declared his meeting with owner of KKR Shahrukh Khan as positive.

Akram said he informed Shahrukh Khan about his demand and now its up to him. He said he is not in a hurry but optimistic that positive results of meeting will be emerged soon.

If there will be a chance to work with KKR, it will be a great challenge because consultancy is a different field, Akram added.
