The renowned Pakistani fast-bowler, Wasim Akram, showered extensive compliments on the Indian cricket team, humorously suggesting that a match between India and the rest of the world would be evenly balanced in the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.
In an interview with A Sports, Akram lauded India’s exceptional fitness levels, attributing it to the culture of fitness fostered by Virat Kohli, which has become a habitual practice for the entire Indian team.
Responding to a viewer’s query about how to counter Team India and their formidable bowler, Jasprit Bumrah, Akram quipped, “You’ll need to either steal Bumrah’s shoes or the bats of the Indian batsmen,” injecting a touch of humor into the conversation.
Delving into further detail, he highlighted that Team India had been diligently preparing for the World Cup for over 1.5 years, a dedication that has become evident to all observers. Akram also noted the formidable nature of the Indian bowling attack, emphasizing the strong body language of bowlers like Siraj and Bumrah, which has consistently troubled batsmen. This lethal combination is further
complemented by the contributions of Shami, Jadeja, and Kuldeep.
