Wasim Akram Bowls to Misbah After 15 Years. Michael Slater from Australia got a swinging Yorker from the Pakistani legendary bowler Wasim Akram in Australia. Pakistan was in Australia for the test series and the one day international matches. Wasim Akram was at peak at that age. And he was bowling very sharp and swinging to the Australia batsman. The opener of Australia cricket team did not have any clue. Whether he should have gone back or come forward to the swinging deliveries of Wasim Akram.
Michael Slater was given out leg before wicket as the ball of Wasim Akram swung very sharp. Wasim Akram was quite excited about the first wicket the Australia lost. The opener of Australia cricket team was playing really well in the test series against Pakistan. Early wickets with the new ball the main problem for the Pakistan cricket team in that particular series.
Due to the swing bowling of Wasim Akram, the other batsman of Australia standing at the non striking end felt very relaxed. Mark Taylor kept on having a good eyed on the swing bowling of Wasim Akram. He never wanted to face the bowling of that left arm bowler. He was forced to face the swing bowling of Waqar Younis, who was also bowling pretty well.
Michael Slater thought that he could survive the first over of the legendary Wasim Akram. But it did not happened what was in the mind of the opener of the Australia. Australia players have been very tough to get out by the bowling side since they had plenty of experience. Wasim Akram had all the skills to beat the bat and bring the ball back to the opener of Australia.
Wicket of Michael Slater was an important break through for the Pakistan cricket team. Shoaib Akhtar was another bowler who could have bowled very good bowling on that pitch.
