Former Pakistan pace bowler Wasim Akram was a magician as he could make the ball talk. The 'Sultan of Swing' was an absolute nightmare for the batsmen in the mid-80s and 90s. So it evoked curiosity when Akram, arguably the greatest left-arm pacer, shared a video on Twitter of a kid bowling with an action similar to his and swinging the cricket ball.

"Where is this boy??? We have serious talent flowing through the veins of our nation and no platform for these kids to be discovered. It's time we do something about it #TheFutureOfCricketIsWithOurYouth," Akram's tweet read.

Akram's wife Shaniera Akram also tweeted her husband's video.

"Another Wasim Akram maybe?" she wrote.

Akram is second only to Muttiah Muralitharan in the top wicket-takers' list in One-Day Internationals. He is the only pacer to reach the 500-club in one-dayers.

Akram was simply sensational in the 1992 World Cup final when he castled Allan Lamb and Chris Lewis off consecutive deliveries to wreck England's chase.

Akram also took 414 wickets from 104 Test matches.
