File photo of Virat Kohli during a workout
Virat Kohli props past the boundary ropes and goes to the middle. He keeps waiting and getting ready to face the bowler. On the other hand, it is Wasim Akram who is getting ready to steam in. It’s going to be quite a competition, right? Akram is considered one of the best pacers ever and Kohli, one of the best batsmen of all time. Well, the former Pakistan captain was asked how he would feel and what he would do if he were at his best in a hypothetical scenario and bowled to Kohli.
Akram said he would feel confident bowling to Kohli as he would be new on the field with a few wickets falling. And he said he would bring up his entire range of tricks to tackle someone of Kohli’s caliber.
“I would have had a lot of confidence. If he comes out to bat at 3 or 4, it means two wickets are down and that means he is new on the field. Then I will attack,” Akram said on the talk show. ‘To be honest’ on Nashpati Prime.
“I will move the ball away from him and into him, and as Plan B, I would bowl a bouncer for him. I will bowl a bouncer for him with a fielder in the deep, and then with the fielder called in. “I will try all the tricks,” he said.
Akram played 104 Tests and 356 ODIs and took 414 and 502 wickets in the two formats respectively.
He also has three Test hundreds, with a top score of 257 *.
