Default Wasim makes charity farewell

Wasim makes charity farewell


Wasim ranks as one of the game's all-time greats
Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram will play what may be the last match of his career in Lahore on Wednesday.
He will appear for a Pakistan XI against a World XI in a charity game to raise funds for the Zindagi Trust for underpriveleged children.

West Indian Courtney Walsh and Dean Jones of Australia will come out of retirement to play for the World side.

Wasim took a record 502 wickets in one-day matches and 414 in Tests during his career.

"I always wanted to play my last match in Lahore," he has been quoted as saying.


"Playing in front of my home crowd for a noble cause will not only give me pleasure, but satisfaction."

Victory at the Oval means Pakistan, under Wasim's captaincy, seal a series win
