Former England cricketer Andrew Flintoff is one of the most sensational talents dished out by his country. With a sparkling set of all-round skills, he donned English jersey for 79 Tests, 141 ODIs and 7 T20Is while producing a number of match-changing performances.
Recently, the cherished player went on to credit the Pakistani legend Wasim Akram for making him a successful cricketer. Flintoff revealed that he learned a lot of lessons when he shared a dressing room with a former Pakistan skipper for Lancashire while playing at an age of 16.
Calling Wasim his hero, the 42-year said that the left-arm quick took him under his wing by making him familiar with a lot of trick of this trade. Therefore, he didn’t shy away from concluding that Wasim played a big part in his career. Flintoff shared all this in a podcast with Shoaib Akhtar who was one of those lucky players who got to rub the shoulders with Pakistani genius.
