Pakistan has a rich legacy of fast bowling that is perpetuated with the constant influx of exciting pacers into the cricket setup. The recent rise of Naseem Shah and Shaheen Afridi in the international arena has further strengthened this notion, making Pakistan a competitive unit.
Giving his verdict on the impressive performances of Naseem and Shaheen, former speedster Shoaib Akhtar believes the two individuals have the potential to reach the heights of greatness established by Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis in the past.
“Naseem and Shaheen have the potential to become next Waqar and Waqar respectively,” Akhtar claimed in an online session with the Pakistan cricket team. Akhtar added that maintaining the unique fast bowling aggression was the key to achieving more success in the future.
