LAHORE – Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram will arrive in Colombo later this month on a brief tour to help Sri Lankan players improve their balling skills.

“50-year-old former left-arm quick will conduct training sessions for fast bowlers apart from addressing the coaching staff of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC)”, Island Cricket  reported on Wednesday.

Akram will be the Guest of Honour during next week’s Dialog Cricket Awards.

Known as the ‘Sultan of Swing’, Wasim Akram is considered as the role model for the best fast bowler of next generation.

Earlier, there were rumours that the  legendary bowler is being offered to become Pakistan coach. However, a PCB confirmation is yet to come.
