The ‘Sultan of Swing’ was a pretty handy batsman in his own right. But even he would struggle to come to terms with the fact that his highest Test score is more than some of the greatest batsman of his era- Sachin Tendulkar [248 vs Bangladesh], Sourav Ganguly [239 vs Pakistan] and Jacques Kallis [224 vs Sri Lanka].

Akram’s finest hour as a Test batsman came in a 1996 Test match against Zimbabwe in Sheikhpura. Coming into bat at No.8, with his side reeling at 7-237 in response to Zimbabwe’s 375, Akram led from the front and smashed a whirlwind knock of 257 off 363 balls- an innings which included 22 fours and 12 sixes.
