Lehmann recalls Wasim Akram as the best bowler he ever faced

SYDNEY: Former Australian cricketer Darren Lehmann recalled one of his duels against Pakistan’s former fast bowler Wasim Akram, sharing a video where he hits him for a six.
Lehmann said Akram was the best bowler he faced in his international career spanning nearly seven years and that he had got lucky on that day by winning that particular duel.
The former Australian coach shared a video in which he hits a good length ball for a six over deep mid-wicket. Akram bowled a bouncer on the next delivery and sledged the Australian batsman. He then takes a single off the next ball and completes his half-century.
As the left-handed batsman completed his half-century the commentator said, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but the six went over the fence champ.”.


On Wednesday, former Australian captain Ricky Pointing shared a video of him facing Shoaib Akhtar, terming it as the fastest spell he ever faced in his career.
A few days earlier he termed an over from Andrew Flintoff from Ashes 2005 as the best over he faced. Darren Lehmann was part of the World Cup 2003 winning squad captained by Ponting.
Lehmann played 27 Tests and 117 ODIs and has nine centuries and 27 international centuries to his name. His personal best score in ODIs against Pakistan team is 103 in Lahore.
Wasim Akram is Pakistan’s highest wicket-taker in ODIs and Test cricket. The Lahore-born cricketer has 916 international wickets in his 18-year-long career.
