Legendary swing bowler Wasim Akram is widely regarded as the greatest bowler to ever play the game. A long career that spanned almost 18 years, Wasim’s expertise with the ball was unparalleled as he bamboozled the best batsmen of his generation with exorbitant amount of swing and pace.
Having made a successful transition into commentating and intermittent stints of coaching T20 franchises, Wasim still remains an active figure in the public domain. The passion and devotion with which he used to don the green jersey of Pakistan remains fresh as he was observed to be interacting with Sarfaraz Ahmed and his troops ahead of the start of their World Cup opener against West Indies.
Wasim was seen handing out tips to the Pakistan pacers and dishing out secrets to succeed in English conditions. While Wasim’s advice certainly holds great value, Pakistan’s batters did not offer a reasonably total for their bowlers to defend.
