We lifted the Cup at the same venue 22 years ago
Pakistan’s former fast bowler Wasim Akram hopes that World Cup final on March 29, 2015 will become memorable for every Pakistani as they lifted the same cup 22 years back on the same venue.
According to ICC-Cricket, Wasim Akram said, “I am anxiously waiting for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 to start, and, throughout the event, I will be itching to go out and bowl myself. It will be tough for me not to go into flashback mode and remember my magical deliveries at the MCG, which I consider as some of my very best”.
“It is time though for this generation of cricketers to prove themselves and I hope that when the final comes around on March 29, it will be as memorable an occasion as it was when we lifted the Cup at the same venue 22 years ago,” he added.
Though Akram strongly supports his home team in winning the 2015 World Cup, but the Pakistani team isn’t among his personal favorites when it comes to performance.
He said, “Pakistan is always an unpredictive team as when and what it can do, nobody could answer in this World”. However, Akram selected Australia and South Africa as its favourite teams that have full capabilities and performance history to win the international event, media reported.
