Pakistan finds cricketers from nowhere: Wasim Akram

Pakistan cricket has a knack of surprising the world with its endless supply of talented players. Although the country is presumed to lack quality infrastructural facilities like the ones found in Australia and England, it still gets to unearth rare gems, who go on to excel in the international arena.

Talking about this aspect of Pakistan cricket, legendary pacer Wasim Akram focused on the abundance of raw talent available in the streets of Pakistan. He gave the example of teenage pace sensation Naseem Shah, who has hogged the headlines with his terrific pace and sharp bounce.

"Pakistan cricket relies a lot on skill. Suddenly you see a bowler come out of nowhere, we have Naseem Shah who bowls close to 150 kph, he is actually very sharp and really, really quick. We find cricketers from nowhere, that's the beauty of Pakistan cricket,” Wasim said in an interview recently.
