Former Pakistani cricket captain Wasim Akram's car has been shot at in Karachi, Pakistan, the country's police have revealed.

Reports say the shooting took place near National Stadium, in Karachi's Karsaz area, but the ex-bowler escaped unhurt.

Police said the incident appeared to be a case of road rage. Gun violence is not common in Karachi, though much of it is linked to militant groups.

Wasim has told the Express News channel: "A car hit mine, I stopped him and then his guy stepped out and fired at my car."

Police have confirmed that they are looking for the owner of the car to arrest him.
