Wasim Akram was one of the finest bowler of his time and not many bowlers are at par with this great left arm fast bowler. Pakistan cricket was lucky that they were graced with a bowler of Wasim’s caliber and skills.
He had command over both the inswing and the outswing which made him a potent bowler because this quality is rare amongst left arm pacers around the world.
Wasim Akram- The King Of Swing !!
Wasim was an able exponent of pitched up bowling and in particular the yorkers which were hard to even defend and if you combine that with a pace of more than 140 kph then those deliveries were virtually unplayable.
Wasim Akram deadliest yorkers compilation.
Wasim Akram’s track record in all formats of the game was absolutely spectacular as he took more than 900 international wickets at a very decent average and strike rate. He never let the batsman to dictate terms and always had some sort of reply in his armory.
Even when he played a recent match in the cricket All-Stars he did not show signs of rustiness and his spells were top draw for a bowler who was playing after such a long time and at an age of 49.
Bowlers like Wasim Akram are born once in a lifetime and its safe to say that cricket will not see a bowler like him for ages. For theses reasons he is rightfully called the “Sultan of Swing” and this title is just a glaring example of his class and eminence.
