When Woakes came in, there were no bouncers, no short deliveries, they let him settle down and runs were coming easy. We’ve got a 17-year-old (Naseem), who bowls 90mph, a 20-year-old (Shaheen Afridi), who is around 88mph, and they should be bowling a lot more overs - 18-20 overs each innings, no matter the situation,” External link

Wasim Akram stated : “I am excited about these two boys and I hope they continue the tradition of great pace bowlers from Pakistan. They are the future for Pakistan and I hope that they learn from Chris Woakes, Anderson and Broad and look at the length they bowled consistently, which enabled them to swing the ball against West Indies,” “This is where Waqar Younis’ experience as the bowling coach will be vital in guiding these two young bowlers. Pitch it up, let it swing, as short bowling won’t work. Too often young bowlers get very excited in England and want to bang the ball in, but consistent line and lengths with the Dukes ball will work” External link

I played my first Test match against Sachin in 1989 then I played against him in 99.

Outswing will trouble you when you go to chase the ball. So that was his simple technique. When played us on the front foot we used to bowl bouncers at him which hampered our lines,” External link

Wasim Akram said : “He (Kohli) is the modern great but compared to Sachin, these are two different players altogether. Both are aggressive but of varying nature. As a bowler you look at a batsman’s body language, if I sledged Tendulkar he would have become more determined because he was aggressive but calm in nature,” External link

Wasim Akram told ( about Viv Richards ) : “He would have hit me a lot in 1988. He was a muscular guy and I was very skinny. It was the last over of the match and I was bowling at a good pace. I had realised by then that I have become fast. Viv Richards realised I was a difficult bowler and thought I have a quick-arm action. I bowled a bouncer at him and his cap fell down. Someone like Viv Richards dropping his cap was a big deal,” External link

Wasim Akram said : “When I went out I saw Viv Richards standing without his shirt. He was sweating and having his bat in his hand, he also had his pads on. I got scared and ran back to Imran Khan. I told him that Viv Richards was waiting for me with a bat in his hand. Imran Khan told ‘what should I do. It’s your fight, go and handle it’. I went out and told him sorry. I told him that nothing of this sort will happen again and he said you better not, I will kill you. My street smartness worked for me then,” External link

Wasim Akram told : “I remember that Test match like it was yesterday. India and Pakistan were known to play close matches. I remember a Test match in 1987 in Bangalore when Sunil Gavaskar scored some 90-odd and then this Chennai Test. It was such a close Test match, into its last day. I think India needed some 20-odd runs, and the partnership between Mongia and Sachin was flourishing. Sachin was reading Saqlain bloody well, and was aware when he bowled the doosra,” External link
