Top Three All-time cricketers According to Shoaib Akhtar


An ex-Pakistani fast bowler, Shoaib Akhtar, has named the three greatest cricketers of all time. Since joining the Rawalpindi Express in 2004, he has had the opportunity to play alongside or against all of these individuals.

Former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has named his top three all-time cricketers. All of these players have crossed paths with him throughout his 14-year career with the Rawalpindi Express.

“Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram, Sachin Tendulkar, and Shane Warne, the legendary spinner who died away earlier this month, are all on the list of the greatest cricketers of all time.”

Shoaib Akhtar was shocked to hear of Shane Warne’s death, and he was very fond of him.

One of the best bowlers of all time, Akhtar described him as a “large-hearted guy” in a Youtube video.

“He was a fast bowler waiting to happen. That’s the type of guy he was. I was heartbroken to learn of his death. He started too soon. “Wasim, Shane Warne, and Sachin are the finest three players for me,” he said.

The achievements of these great cricketers are well documented.

One of only two players to play in 200 Tests, Sachin Tendulkar also holds the records for most ODI and Test runs (18426 and 15921, respectively) and is the first one-day cricketer to score a century and two. He has the most century in both ODIs and Tests (49). (51).

One of cricket’s greatest fast bowlers, Wasim Akram, has been nicknamed the “Sultan of Swing.”

There are 502 ODI wickets and 414 Test wickets in Wasim Akram’s batting record. Akram is an accomplished batsman, having amassed a total of more than 6600 runs in international cricket.

Shane Warne, one of cricket’s greatest leg-spinners, amassed over 4,000 runs and 1001 wickets in his career, including 13 half-centuries.

Among his milestones are the most wickets in a calendar year (96 in 2005), the most wickets in Test cricket for Australia (708) and the most wickets for Australia in international cricket (1001).
