Srinagar, May 20: Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram Wednesday said it was a proud moment for him to see Bangladesh cricket improving immensely in last decade or so.
Akram remarked he misses going to Bangladesh, its food and cricket as well.
“I miss coming to Bangladesh… Bangladesh have always been very close to my heart. The people… the food… and of course cricket as well,” Akram told Tamim during the live video session.
“For me it is very proud moment to see Bangladesh cricket improve immensely in last 10-12 years. World top players like yourself, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur (Rahim), Mustafizur (Rahman)…all these guys… it’s really good to see.”
Complimenting legendary pacer, Tamim told Wasim he feels lucky to have not faced him.
“We are lucky Wasim bhai. I don’t want to face you. We are very lucky that you are not playing,” said Tamim.
Wasim, in reply, said he bowling to Tamim and Shakib would have been a watchful contest.
“But it would have been a very good battle. Especially against you and Shakib. Being a left-hander, it would have been a very good battle,” Akram said.
