Former Pakistan captain and bowling ace Wasim Akram thanked fellow bowler Waqar Younis after he congratulated him on his achievements throughout his career.

“Thanks buddy, wouldn’t have been possible without you at the other end,” Akram wrote on Twitter.

Sharing pictures of Akram, Younis congratulated Akram for his contribution to Pakistan cricket.


“Pride of performance, Hilal-e-Imtiaz, ICC [and] PCB Hall of Fame. 916 inter [wickets] with three hattricks,” he wrote sharing some stats of his bowling career.


Calling him a “legend”, former Pakistan cricket team coach Younis said heroes come and go but “legends are forever”.

Akram had been formally inducted into the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Hall of Fame.

The 1992 World Cup winner Akram, who took a total of 916 wickets and scored 6,615 runs in his international career from 1984 to 2003, was inducted into the PCB Hall of Fame by veteran West Indies cricketer Sir Isaac Vivian Alexander Richards.

Vivian Richards, one of the all-time greats and an ICC Cricket Hall of Famer, presented Akram a commemorative cap and plaque before the beginning of the 28th match in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL), played between Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators.

Akram is now one of the eight Pakistani stalwarts who are members of the PCB Hall of Fame.
