The other half of the Two W’s also wished his partner on his birthday.
Apart from local stars, many of the international stars also sent wishes to the cricket great.
Surprisingly, there was a hastag “#Four1Four” used by his fans with their birthday wishes, whose reason is still uncertain, probably, it depicts the number of wickets (414) Wasim Akram has cracked in his test career.
