Former Pakistani bowling legend Wasim Akram was known as the sultan of swing during his playing days. Widely regarded as the best left arm bowler to play the game of cricket, Akram has left a legacy behind him, after retiring from the game.
Recently, 51-year-old Akram played a friendly match before Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2018 edition. The match was between the members of Multan Sultans. It was 10 overs each side match. The players were divided into two teams; Wasim Akram Sultan XI and Shoaib Malik Tufan XI. It was Akram’s side who won the game with 7 wickets, chasing a target of 74 runs in 10 overs.
Wasim Akram dismissed the skipper of opponent team, Malik. Shoaib edged Wasim trying to cut a ball way outside off-stump. The video is surfacing on the internet because, interestingly, the umpire had given it a wide initially but as soon as Akram appealed he changed his decision to out.
Here is the video:
