Throughout the course of the cricketing history, the game has witnessed iconic duos of fast-bowling. One of them includes the name of Pakistani pacers Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis. The two Ws, for a long period of time, rattled many batting line-ups with their unprecedented skills in both home and away conditions.
However, there was a widespread belief that the former skippers of the boys in green are jealous of each other’s success and never shared a strong bond.
However, Wasim Akram moved forward to disdainfully spurn this notion as he said that it is a fantasy, promulgated by many, without having any realistic grounds.
Addressing his relationship with Waqar Younis, the Lahore born said that the two bowling giants shared a healthy competition, which urged them to do better than the other.
But, there was not even an inch of jealousness. The cricketer turned commentator also added that they had their differences on and off the field, but both remained focused towards helping Pakistan fetch a plethora of victories.
