Wasim Akram told : “No. This is against sportsman’s spirit (desperately getting out to another bowler). I said to Waqar Younis that you play normal cricket, I will not get out to Anil Kumble. As a captain, I told Waqar to play his normal game and go for shots against (Javagal) Srinath. The first ball Kumble bowled inside edge and I got caught. It was a big day for India and Kumble. It was massive,” External link

Wasim Akram said : "For me, it is a very proud moment to see Bangladesh cricket has improved immensely in the last 10-12 years. World-class players like yourself, Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman -- all these guys are playing now. It is really good to see. And Bangladesh side when these guys were there, the fielding was not that great but now Bangladesh is now one of the best fielding sides in the world," External link

Wasim Akram concluded ( about William Hussey ) : “The Olympic Movement’s only remaining dead pocket in the world happens to coincide with cricket’s strongest – the subcontinent. This region, which includes India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, represents just over one fourth of the world’s population. But with the exception of Pakistan and India’s great hockey teams of the past, these four cricket powerhouses have received barely a handful of Olympic medals in nearly 100 years of competition. What better way for the IOC to spread the Olympic brand and ideals into this region than on the back of T20 or T10 cricket? The rewards for both the ICC and the IOC getting this right would be enormous,” External link

Wasim Akram pointed out : “Whoever came to the cricket board, he came with a short-term goal. There was no fixing of the First-Class structure. What’s been going on for the last 30 years, they did nothing different from it. So that is the reason. There’s plenty of talent in Pakistan. The FC structure has now finally changed but you still need 3-4 years for it to show results,” “What did India do? The money generated by the Indian Premier League (IPL) invested whole-heartedly in First-Class cricket. They changed the FC structure, the pay structure, everything. They brought in professionals - they have the best physios and trainers in the world. Former Indian cricketers have become good coaches themselves. They then, in turn, have employed individual coaches, which is the need of the hour. So that is where the difference is” External link

But with the exception of Pakistan and India’s great hockey teams of the past, these four cricket powerhouses have received barely a handful of Olympic medals in nearly 100 years of competition.
