Pakistani fast bowler Wasim Akram showed some glimpses of his playing days recently in a friendly match in Pakistan. Akram’s Sultan XI won the T-10 friendly match by defeating Shoaib Malik’s Tufan XI with seven wickets.

The left-arm pacer had a formidable partnership with Waqar Younis, as they gave nightmares to the batsmen all over the world. The greatest exponent of swing bowling, Akram is one of the best left-arm pacers to have played the game.

The 51-year old dismissed the current Pakistani all-rounder Shoaib Malik, as he edged one behind to the wicketkeeper. Fans came to witness the match at the Multan Cricket Stadium and Akram didn’t disappoint the fans.

He first beat Malik’s bat and then sent him back to the pavilion. As Akram was celebrating the wicket of Malik along with his teammates, opponent batsman Imran Nazir to joined them and gave a high-five.

Akram, who made his debut in 1984 finished as the highest wicket-taker for Pakistan with 502 wickets besides his name. Akram was part of the Pakistan squad that won the World Cup in 1992.

Akram played 104 Tests for Pakistan picking 404 wickets at an average of 23.92. He also has three centuries to his name including a double century against Zimbabwe.
