Shoaib Akhtar names Mohammaed Shami as potential ‘king of reverse swing’



Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar feels Rohit Sharma’s Test career will only grow after his century in both the innings of his debut match as opener while pacer Mohammed Shami can become the king of reverse swing. Akhtar also lamented that no Pakistani pacer has sought his advice while Indians like Shami has been keeping in touch with him regarding fast bowling.

Akhtar said that he once advised Shami, who played a major in India’s big win over South Africa in the first Test, to try and become a tearaway pacer while also using reverse swing as a lethal arsenal.

“After India’s (50-over) World Cup disappointment, Shami called me up one day and said he was feeling sad that he could not do well for India. I told him not to lose heart but maintain fitness. The home series is coming and you will do well I said.
