Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal has played against some of the best bowlers in cricket history, but which two does he consider to be the best of the best?
In a question and answer session with fans on Twitter, Akmal revealed that the two best bowlers he ever faced were legendary Australia pace bowler Glenn McGrath and renowned South Africa seamer Shaun Pollock.
Both McGrath and Pollock are considered to be among the greatest fast bowlers to have ever played the game of cricket.

The 38-year-old has not played for Pakistan since April 2017, but has been doing extremely well on the domestic circuit.
Akmal had a highly successful campaign in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, where he was the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament with 906 runs in 11 matches for Central Punjab, which included three centuries and three fifties, at an average of 60.40.
Having played a pivotal role in leading Central Punjab to victory in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, Akmal is now preparing for the Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he will represent the Peshawar Zalmi.
In last year’s PSL, Akmal finished as the second-highest run-scorer in the competition after accumulating 357 runs in 13 games, which included three half-centuries, at an average of 27.46.
