New Delhi: Imagine, the king of swing Wasim Akram is bowling and in front of him is former Team India captain Virat Kohli. When former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram was asked what he would have done if he had a chance to bowl in front of Kohli, Akram explained how he would have put this run machine under pressure and picked up his wicket.
Let me tell you that Wasim Akram is counted among the greatest fast bowlers of all time. Recently, he sent former England captain Michael Atherton to the pavilion in a charity match played in the memory of Shane Warne. On the show 'To Be Honest', Wasim Akram said about bowling to Virat, "I would have been very confident in bowling against him, if he came to bat at number three or four. Because that means two wickets of the team have fallen. If he is new to the crease, I would have attacked. I would pitch the ball to the middle stump and then swing it outwards, close to them. If it didn't work, I'd switch to Plan B. '
Wasim further said, "I would bowl the bouncer ball and put the fielder in the deep and then send him back, by doing things like this, I would have got Virat out. Wasim Akram has played 104 Tests and 356 ODIs for Pakistan. During this time, he has taken 414 and 502 wickets in both formats.
