Wasim Akram: A video of former Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram is making a lot of headlines on social media. This video is from during the test match being played between Australia and Pakistan in Perth. Cricket fans are giving a lot of reaction regarding the changing expressions on his face in this video.
This video is from the third day of Perth Test. Wasim Akram is sitting in the commentary box and during this time Babar Azam’s wicket falls. Mitchell Marsh gets him caught out by wicketkeeper Alex Carey. As soon as his wicket falls, the two commentators present in the commentary box jump up, but Wasim Akram’s face pales. He gets lost somewhere for a few moments. Expressions of frustration and disappointment suddenly appear on their faces.
However, as soon as he realizes that he is in the commentary box, he brings a forced smile on his face and is seen trying to forget the sorrow of the wicket falling while supporting his fellow commentators.

Babar Azam returned to the pavilion after scoring just 21 runs in this match. It was very important for him to stand here on the pitch. He was out at a time when Pakistan team was seen making a comeback after losing 3 wickets. This was the reason that when Pakistan’s fourth wicket fell in the form of Babar at a total of 181 runs, Wasim Akram remained stunned for some time.
Australia tightened the screws
By the end of the third day’s play in the Perth Test, Australia had taken a lead of 300 runs. Here Australia had scored 487 runs in the first innings. In reply, Pakistan’s first innings was reduced to just 271 runs. By stumps on the third day, Australia had tightened their grip on the match by scoring 84 runs after losing 2 wickets.
