The video of his blistering bowling skills reached none other than the greatest left-arm fast bowler, Wasim Akram himself.

At the time, the bowling legend sent out a tweet asking for the whereabouts of the young sensation:

Thanks to the power of the social media, Wasim Akram was finally able to get in touch with the young prodigy in question. His name is Hasan Akhtar and he just can’t wait to be trained by the bowling legend himself.
