September 29, 2020

LAHORE: Former Pakistan pace bowler Aaqib Javed has picked legendary left-arm seamer Wasim Akram as his favourite bowler of all time.

“My all-time favourite bowler is Wasim Akram,” Javed said in an interview on youtube. Aaqib also said that England fast bowler James Anderson was the “best fast bowler ever [in history]”.

Anderson recently became the first pace bowler to take 600 Test wickets. “Anderson proved himself the best fast bowler ever [in history] because he’s taken the highest wickets in the list of fast bowlers,” Javed said.

“My all-time favourite batsman is Brian Lara,” he said. Aaqib also picked limited overs captain Babar Azam as his favourite Pakistan batsman right now.
