Former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin has expressed that Wasim Akram to be the toughest bowler he has ever faced throughout his career.
“Wasim Akram was the best bowler because he had a lot of variety,” said Azharuddin while speaking to Hindustan Times. “Even when you were batting on 100 or 150, you’re not very sure; he could still get you out. That was his forte. That was the best thing about Wasim Akram. He is probably the toughest bowler I have faced,” he said.
He added that West Indian quickie Courtney Walsh was also one the best bowlers and was very difficult to read. “I found Courtney Walsh very difficult to read; he was the hardest bowler to read,” said Azharuddin.
Azharuddin’s comment comes a few days after Indian batting star Virat Kohli revealed that he would have feared batting against Wasim if he played against him.
Few days back, Mohammad Azharuddin has walked out of an interview after question on match-fixing were directed towards him.-Business Recorder
