Wasim Akram is one of the games greatest players of all time . Wasim is regarded as one of the finest fast bowlers ever produced by the sport .
Wasim Akram's cricketing style was on display for twenty years, with his enthralling left-arm speed, his explosive batsmanship, and his inspiring leadership.In a world where nothing is known to outsiders, he kept his own advice about his cricketing days for another twenty years, full of drama, controversy, and even mystery.In a world where cricket's greatest left-arm bowler and one of its enduring survivors were selected from the streets of Lahore and groomed by Imran Khan to become the world champion, he was Man of the Match in the 1992 World Cup final, which Pakistan won.Wasim Akram posted a note about his memoir on Twitter, saying that he is honoured to share his tale, Sultan, with cricket lovers and my dear followers in the Indian subcontinent, both on and off the field.Nevertheless, dividing my time between my new home city of Karachi, my wife Shanieras old home city of Melbourne, and my adopted city of Manchester has given me a fresh outlook on cricket, my nation, and my life.I hope my followers will read Sultan, and I am excited to share my journey with them.Wasim Akram's most famous collaboration was with Javed Miandad, Imran Khan, Waqar Younis, and Moin Khan.He had a less well-known but still listening partner for the past year or so: me, as his co-author. Of course, I said yes immediately, but partly because I've always been fascinated by how great players are up close, how they see and describe the game.I've read horror stories about ghosts as a group of unsuspecting, unreliable, or unforeign subjects, despite the fact that I've heard them all.Wasim could not have been more true, and he worked collaboratively sincerely, with sincerity, and even more openly, even on difficult topics such as the death of his first wife, Huma, or living with diabetes.I was struck by Pakistan crickets' ability to pull itself apart rather than for putting it back together, said Udayan Mitra, Executive Publisher, HarperCollins India. Wasim is one of the game's greatest players of all time: the best left-arm fast bowler ever, one of the best all-rounders of all time, and a role model and mentor to so many with whom he has freely shared his vast cricket knowledge.We are so proud to be bringing Sultan, Wasims, a book about the great Gideon Haigh, to Indian Subcontinent readers.I'm looking forward to reading it!Wasim was a master. He broadened the range of what could be achieved in his art with dedication and dedication, and it made fast bowling unrecognizable from what it was like before himALLAN BORDER, ESPNcricinfoNot just any great bloke, but perhaps the greatest left-arm quick that the cricket world has seenSTEVE WAUGHWasim is regarded as one of the finest fast bowlers ever produced by the sport.He is also a former Pakistan cricket captain and is widely known throughout the cricketing world and regularly writes about world cricket events.Akram holds the world record for most wickets in List A cricket with 881, behind Sri Lanka's off-spin bowler Muttiah Muralitharan in terms of ODI wickets.He is considered one of the founders, and probably the best guitarist of, reverse swing bowling, and is often referred to as the 'Sunsultan'.
