Legendary Pakistan pace bowler Wasim Akram has lauded the national team after they whitewashed Australia 2-0 in the recently concluded Test series in the United Arab Emirates.
Not only was this the first time in 20 years that Pakistan have beaten Australia in a Test series, but it also helped the country shoot up to third place on the Test team rankings.
“This is an incredible win for Pakistan,” Akram said. “Pakistan gave an extraordinary performance, something I had not expected before the series with Saeed Ajmal not there and because of batting weaknesses.
“I had thought Australia would be tough to beat but kudos to our players like Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq and spinners that they made Australia look an ordinary team.
“I had never thought that Pakistan’s batting will perform so consistently, but they did and Younis topped the charts.”
