Wasim Akram is revered by Mohammad Amir, a left-arm speed bowler. He also emerged as a hot pace potential in 2007 and 2008, despite his impossibly young age. He had been identified as a particular potential by Akram himself during a pace camp he conducted in Lahore in May 2007, even before he travelled to England on a U-19 trip. By 2010, he had established himself as the world’s hottest pace bowling prospect, but his career was ruined within months after he was accused of spot-fixing.
In 2009, he had a strong debut on the domestic circuit, impressing with his quick speed and swing. In his first season with National Bank of Pakistan, he got 55 wickets and was named to the Pakistan World T20 team.
He was a vital opening link in Pakistan’s title run, hovering in the mid 80s and even hitting 90 mph on occasion. In the final, he bowled many nerveless final overs and one extremely vital opening over, dismissing tournament top-scorer Tillakaratne Dilshan for a five-ball duck by peppering him with fast, short balls. He continued his good form in ODIs, with match-winning figures of 4 for 28 against Sri Lanka in August before putting up solid performances in the Champions Trophy.
On his Test debut in Sri Lanka, he took six wickets. Following that, he grew significantly during trips to New Zealand, Australia, and England, increasing his speed and new-ball and reverse swing. He was at his peak during the 2010 England tour, when he became the youngest bowler in Test history, at the age of 18, to capture 50 wickets. But his life came crashing down around him when he was accused of bowling purposeful, pre-planned no-balls in a Test match as part of a spot-fixing scheme. Following an ICC tribunal’s inquiry, he was sentenced to a five-year ban in February 2011. At Southwark Crown Court, he pleaded guilty to the offences and was sentenced to six months in jail.
Following his release, Amir repeatedly expressed regret for the event and aided the ICC in disseminating its anti-corruption message. He made his international comeback in January 2016, as part of Pakistan’s limited-overs team against New Zealand, after being allowed to return to all forms of cricket in September 2015. He made waves again in his next international assignment, the 20-over Asia Cup in Dhaka, when he shattered India’s top order with three wickets in a hostile speed bowling session.
