words of wisdom
Wasim Akram’s words of wisdom for India’s speed bowlers Beginning on June 7 at London’s The Oval, India and Australia will compete against each other in the final of the ICC World Test Championship.Wasim Akram, a renowned cricketer from Pakistan, has some words of wisdom for the fast bowlers of India who will be competing against Australia in the final of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC), which will begin on June 7 at The Oval in London.Shardul Thakur, an all-rounder, is a likely starter for India’s pace attack. Jaydev Unadkat and Umesh Yadav are also in contention if the selectors decide to play an additional seamer.
The seasoned combo of Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj will serve as the backbone of India’s pace attack.According to the report by the International Cricket Council (ICC), the former star pacer has given the current crop of Indian quicks the advice to remain patient while competing against Australia.Akram is quoted as telling the Indian quicks to “Stay patient against Australia’s top order and not fall into the habit of dropping too short early in their spell.” This is in contrast to the Indian quicks’ usual practise of doing the opposite.
He cautioned the bowlers led by Rohit Sharma not to get overconfident when facing the new ball because they had the necessary expertise.”We all know it swings for 10 to 15 overs, so don’t give away additional runs in the first 10 to 15 overs as a fast bowler. (Early on) don’t get too enthusiastic if there is a bit of bounce since that is what the Australians want,” he said.During his brilliant 17-year career in the red ball format of cricket, Akram amassed a total of 414 Test wickets for Pakistan, earning him the reputation as one of the greatest speed bowlers in the history of the game.
During the fifth and final match against England in 1992 at The Oval, the former paceman got his career-best Test figures of 6/67, which led to his team to a victory that will be remembered for a long time.According to Wasim, “This pitch typically favours teams from the sub-continent,” yet whenever we went here, it was always around the end of August or the beginning of September.However, it is June when the WTC was happening and Akram was of the view that the square is “different, fresh” as well as the ball.
