About Wasim Akram
Wasim Akram (Punjabi, Urdu: وسیم اکرم; born June 3, 1966 in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan) is a World Cup-winning former Pakistani cricketer. He was a left arm fast bowler and left handed batsman, who represented the Pakistani cricket team in Tests and One Day Internationals. He was educated at Islamia College, Lahore. Widely regarded as one of the greatest fast bowlers ever, Akram holds world records for the most wickets taken in List A cricket (881), and is second only to Muttiah Muralitharan in terms of ODI wickets (502). He is considered to be one of the pioneers of reverse swing bowling. The revolutionary nature of reverse swing initially resulted in accusations of ball tampering, although reverse swing has now been accepted as a legitimate feature of the game. Akram's later career was also tarnished with accusations of match fixing, although these remain unproven. On 30 September 2009, Wasim Akram was one of five new members inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.
