Former Australia batsman Dean Jones has admitted that he was “shi**ing myself” to face legendary Pakistan left-arm seamer Wasim Akram.
Akram featured in 104 Tests and took 414 wickets at an average of 23.62.
He is also the second-highest wicket-taker in ODI history as he claimed 502 wickets in 356 matches at an average of 23.52.
Jones’ revelation came in response to a video that showed ex-Australia batsman David Boon being struck on the helmet by a bouncer from Akram.
He recalled that he was nervous since he was “in next” and called Boon “tough” for not showing any pain.
