The ‘Sultan of Swing’ Wasim Akram is widely regarded as the greatest pacer to embrace the sport. A crafty exponent of reverse swing, Wasim found tremendous levels of success owing to his ability to shape the ball from both angles. His lethal partnership along with Waqar Younis posed great challenges to even the best batsmen of his era.
Recently, a Major League's Baseball (MLB) tweet went viral where a baseball pitch garnered a lot of attention for the skill to deviate the ball from the striker’s reach.
The tweet was also noticed by Wasim, who tagged Waqar and mentioned how the duo have wreaked havoc in the past with their impeccable swing bowling.
With a tally of 916 international wickets under his belt, Wasim’s legendary status in the sport is unparalleled. His Twitter banter with MBL is another example of the quality of talent he possessed during his playing days.
