Legendary Pakistan pace bowler Waqar Younis sent a heartwarming birthday message to his former bowling partner Wasim Akram on Monday.

Akram turned 53 and was wished by many players and fans.

However, given the history Akram and Waqar have and the fact that they will always be remembered as one of the most formidable new ball bowling duos in history, Waqar went down the sentimental route when wishing Akram a happy birthday.

“Thank you for all the inspiration during my cricketing days Wasim Bhai.. I wouldn’t a been able to achieve what I have without you bowling from the other end. Have a long, happy and healthy Life,” Waqar said on Twitter, while accompanying the message with the hashtags Happy Birthday and Legend.

Akram said he received the best birthday gift ever when Pakistan beat England by 14 runs in the World Cup on Monday.

Pakistan’s next World Cup match will be against Sri Lanka in Bristol on Friday.
