Ex-Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal said India left-arm pace bowler Arshdeep Singh is world-class just like Wasim Akram.
Wasim is arguably the best left-arm seamer to have played the game as he bowled with serious pace and could make the ball move a large distance.
With Arshdeep sharing many of the same traits the Sultan of Swing had, Ajmal acknowledged that the 24-year-old is something special.
“You have seen Wasim Akram. He is a world-class bowler. Arshdeep bowled brilliantly,” he said on his YouTube channel as quoted by NDTV.
Ajmal is currently involved in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as he is Islamabad United’s assistant coach.
The team enjoyed a strong start to PSL 8 as they beat the Karachi Kings by four wickets in their first match.
Next up for Islamabad United was a match-up against the Multan Sultans, who they lost to by 52 runs.
Their next game will be against the Peshawar Zalmi on February 23.
