Such was Wasim Akram’s plan failed in 1999, told Waqar Younis – ‘I will not be out on Kumble’s ball’

The Pakistan cricket team visited India in 1999. The last Test of the two-match Test series was being played at the Ferozeshah Kotla ground in Delhi. Pakistan were 1-0 ahead in the series and they were looking for a 2–0 clean sweep in the series. In that Test match played in Delhi, Anil Kumble took 10 wickets, creating history in the second innings. The captain of Pakistan at that time was Wasim Akram. Akram has said some important things about this test match. He said that I told Waqar that you play your shots, I will not give my wicket to Kumble. Akram’s plan failed in this match and he too became a victim of Kumble.

Akash Chopra interviewed Wasim Akram on YouTube channel. It is said for Akram that he wanted Kumble not to take 10 wickets, for this he was out on the bowler of another bowler. When Akash Chopra asked Akram about this, he said, ‘No, it would be against sportsmanship. I told Waqar Younis that you play your normal cricket, I will not be out on the ball of Anil Kumble. As captain, I told Waqar to play his natural cricket and play shots off the ball of Javagal Srinath. It was a big day for Kumble and India.
