Wasim proposes fast-bowling fund


wasimWasim Akram has proposed setting up a fast-bowling fund as a way of continuing to contribute to Pakistan’s fast-bowling future.

Wasim, along with Aaqib Javed and Mudassar Nazar, is currently overseeing a PCB-organised camp for the country’s most promising fast bowlers and opening batsmen at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

The experience has already spurred him to consider broadening his role in the future. A more regular, involved position was all but ruled out given his media and business commitments, but he is keen to make some kind of contribution.

“My idea really is to set up a kind of fund, a Wasim Akram fast-bowling fund. Depending on how much time I can give, instead of payments, the money can go into this fund. From this, we can then send, say two bowlers and cover their costs at the academy in Pakistan or an academy in Australia to hone their fast-bowling talent. I have given the idea to the chairman and he liked it, so it could be a regular thing,” Wasim said.
