LAHORE: Legendary Pakistani fast-bowler Wasim Akram has named the batsman which he had the most difficulty bowling to, but admitted that the choice was not an easy one. “It’s a really difficult question to answer to,” he said, while responding to a question during a panel discussion on a private TV channel. “I’ve played against Viv Richards, Desmond Haynes, Gordon Greenidge, Allan Border, Mark Taylor, Mark Waugh and Steve Waugh. But if I have to pick one guy it has to be Martin Crowe.”

Akram said that the former New Zealand cricketer managed to score runs against him and Waqar in their 1993-94 series. “In three Test matches, Waqar got 30 wickets and I played two Test matches and got 16 wickets and it was reverse-swinging after 10 overs. We were quick. I mean, we were at the peak of our careers. 23 or 24 years old, both of us were. He [Crowe] got two hundreds.”
