happy birthday Wasim Akram ! wish you happiness in your life !
Let some fast bowler take as many wickets as Wasim first then we might talk.
But drop catches and ridiculous umpiring cost games and wickets...
I once saw him bowl a delivery that swung out and then dipped late and came back in.
Umpire didn't give it. He was furious.
Later the umpire was asked why he didn't give it. He said something to the effect of it wasn't physically possible that the ball could be coming back in, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.
There is a video of this floating around on YouTube.
Happy birthday to the closest to a pace bowling genius-Wasim Akram.He was a magician who could do thinks with a cricket ball that no other paceman could do.No paceman ever had more variations or natural talent even if there may have been quicker or more accurate bowlers.Had Wasim done justice to his great reservoirs of talent he would have been the greatest pace bowler of all time.
