Ponting Names Pakistani Pacers “Best He’s Ever Faced”

Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has picked legendary left-arm pacer Wasim Akram as one of the best fast-bowlers, and speedster Shoaib Akhtar as the quickest bowler he ever faced.

While replying to a question on Twitter, Ponting share the names of the bowlers that caused him the most trouble during his playing days.

“Wasim Akram and Curtly Ambrose were easily the best fast bowlers I’ve ever faced. Shoaib Akhtar clearly the quickest but Harbhajan Singh got me out more than anybody,” wrote Ponting.


Ponting enjoys a stellar record in his 16 Test matches against Pakistan. The former Aussie captain scored 1537 runs against the Men in Green at an impressive average of 66.82, which included five centuries and six fifties.
