Former Pakistan cricket captain Wasim Akram narrowly escaped an attack as his car came under fire in Karachi on Wednesday, according to reports.
Reports suggested that two unidentified men opened fire at the legendary fast bowler’s car on Karsaz Road near Karachi’s National Stadium. Akram, who thankfully escaped unhurt, called the police helpline and reported the incident.
“I have noted down the vehicle’s number and given it to the police,” Akram was quoted as saying by Express News.
Akram’s manager Arsalan Hyder said, “Wasim was driving himself, and the car next to him tried to jam his car to one side and opened fire. He did not get hit”.
Akram, one of Pakistan’s greatest cricketers, played 104 Tests and took 414 wickets and scored 2898 runs. In ODIs, he took 502 wickets and scored 3717 runs in 356 matches.
