Pakistan’s legendary fast bowler Wasim Akram relived his old playing days in a charity match that was played in England on Sunday.
Akram, who last played a cricket match back in 2015, took the field on Sunday in the Well Being of Women celebrity charity match in remembrance of the great Shane Warne.
While bowling to former English first-class cricketer Mike Atherton, Akram reminded fans of his never-missed in-swinging yorker that got rid of the cricketer-turned-commentator.
A classic @wasimakramlive inswinging yorker is too good for Michael Atherton! 👌🔥

“A classic Wasim Akram in-swinging yorker is too good for Michael Atherton!” wrote Cricket District, who shared a video of the dismissal.
Later on, the former pacer reacted to the video that remained circulating on social media.
“Sorry, Mike Atherton. We might get older but some things will stay the same,” Akram bantered.
Akram finished his career with 414 Test wickets at an average of 23.62 in 104 matches, while he picked up 502 ODI wickets, second-most in history, at an average of 23.52 in 356 matches.
