England’s pace duo James Anderson and Stuart Broad honored Pakistan’s legendary speedster Wasim Akram by recalling one his best spells ever.
In the aforementioned spell, Akram picked up 5 wickets while conceding just 10 runs 7 overs to book a place for Lancashire in the Benson and Hedges Cup final after a victory against Leicestershire in 1993.
The Sultan of Swing was in full flow as he destroyed the opposition and left the batsmen shocked at his skillset.
Anderson responded by making three heart-eyed emojis to signify his love for the legendary Pakistan pacer. Meanwhile, Broad made comparisons to the reverse swing generated by the legendary fast-bowler during his stunning spell that helped the Men in Green lift their maiden World Cup trophy in 1992.
“The same level of reverse swing as 92 WC Final Fire except this time Neil Fairbrother is smiling….” Broad tweeted.
