LAHORE: Ex-Pakistan coach Waqar Younis on Wednesday denied former bowling partner Wasim Akram’s statement regarding the alleged incident which led to Indian spinner Anil Kumble’s 10-wicket haul.

Yesterday marked 18 years since the second innings of the second Test between India and Pakistan at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in which Kumble claimed 10 wickets for 74. He became only the second bowler in the history of Test cricket after Jim Laker to achieve the feat.

In order to commemorate the day, veteran Indian batsman Virender Sehwag tweeted a snapshot of an old article with Wasim’s quotes and praised the left-armer for his sportsmanship.

The former pacer also added that “age is catching up with Wasim bhai”.

Meanwhile, Kumble himself observed the momentous day with a link to the footage of his 10 scalps.
