Former Pakistan great, Shoaib Akhter has lavished praise on fellow speedster Mohammad Asif saying greats like AB De Villiers and VVS Laxman were clueless facing him.

Akhtar said that the premier South African batsman once started crying while facing discarded Pakistani bowler Mohammad Asif in the Asian Test Championship

Speaking to Sports Today, Akhtar recalled how the likes of VVS Laxman and de Villiers were clueless while facing Asif while the latter once also literally started crying while facing the out of favour Pakistani speedster.

“Even bigger than Wasim Akram, the guy that I’ve seen bowling is Mohammad Asif. I have actually seen batsmen crying while facing Asif. Laxman once said ‘how will I face this guy’, AB de Villiers literally started crying during the Asian Test Championship,” Akhtar said.

“But I think after Asif, Bumrah is the smartest fast bowler presently. People were doubtful about his fitness in Test cricket, even I was watching him closely. He has a quick bouncer, is deceptive and sharp and a good character this guy is,” Akhtar said.
