I’ve by no means seen any Pakistani batter hit a reverse lap or sweep shot: Wasim Akram 

Each Akram and Misbah had been a part of a dialog panel dialogue as Akram requested Misbah why Pakistan’s batter lacked creativity. 

“This can be a million-dollar query. How come…okay, I perceive that you’re probably the most skilled, you recognize your sport and you recognize your weak spot and power. However in our cricket, I’ve by no means seen anybody hit a reverse lap or sweep shot. I do know they do bought cricketing pictures, in direction of mid-on, mid-off, sq. leg, and mid-wicket,” requested Akram. 

Mere baad marna chordh diya hain inhone. 2007 closing ke baad,” replied Misbah. (They stopped hitting it after the 2007 T20 World Cup closing). Wasim replied: “Oh…now I bear in mind.”

Misbah added: Logon ne dekha ki isko jeene nehin de rahein hain toh humbhi nehin marenge. Jo 15 chauke maare they woh kisiko yaad nehin. Maine zindagi mein woh shot kabhi miss nehin kiya. Agar mein samne marta, udhr bhi toh fielders the. Agar spinner bowl kar raha he and high-quality leg circle me khadi hain, predominant uske upr se maar sakta tha, woh bhi flight bowl ko. Mera execution hello galat thi.” 

(Individuals noticed that they aren’t letting me reside, however they will not let me die as effectively. Nobody remembers my 15 boundaries, I by no means missed that (lap) shot. If I might have performed a straight shot, fielders had been additionally positioned in that place. I can hit the lap shot even to a spinner, however my execution towards India was fallacious).
