Tom Moody names Wasim Akram among hypothetical T20 greats

KARACHI: Former Australian cricketer Tom Moody has named Pakistan’s legendary fast-bowler Wasim Akram, among cricketers who would have done well in Twenty20 cricket despite the fact that they did not get a chance to play this form of the game during their illustrious careers. Moody also named West Indies batting great Sir Vivian Richards and Australian leg-spinner, one of the finest to grace the game, Shane Warne alongside Akram. Akram is arguably the greatest fast-bowler the world has seen due his bowling prowess. The left-arm pacer claimed 414 wickets in 104 Test matches at a fantastic average of 23.62. He also scored 2898 runs at a handy average of 22.64, while batting lower down the order. In the 50-over format, Akram claimed 502 wickets in 356 matches at an average of 23.52 and economy rate of 3.89. He also accumulated 3717 runs at a strike-rate of 88.33 and with the help of six half-centuries. Moody, who played eight Test matches and 76 One-day Internationals (ODI) for Australia between 1987 and 1999, also said that Akram was the best bowler he played against.
