Mirpur: Known to have shaped careers of many, Pakistan legend Wasim Akram on Wednesday gave some valuable tips to mercurial Afghanistani leftarm pacer Shapoor Zadran. Akram was seen showing Shapoor how to deliver the ball from a high arm action as the Afghan pacer listened to him with rapt attention.

The Pakistani great even showed him the action and how to release the ball and asked Shapoor to pick up the action during the innings break of India-Afghanistan match at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. “I dont know what he said. Maybe he gave him some tips and they would work in the free time,” Afghanistan skipper Mohammad Nabi said.
Shapoor’s inspiring bowling of 2 for 39 set up Afghanistan’s historic win over Bangladesh, their first ever against a Test playing nation in the biggest upset of the Asia Cup.
