It’s not often that a renowned person is targeted by trepidation. But when it does, it invokes a flurry of terror. However, Pakistan cricket legend Wasim Akram was lucky to survive one such freak accident in Karachi on Wednesday.

According to reports, Akram was on his way to the National Stadium for a fast-bowling camp when an unidentified man started firing bullets at his car which hit the tyre of his vehicle. Luckily, he came out unscathed after the encounter came to a halt.

“A car hit mine, I stopped him and then his guy stepped out and fired at my car,” the 49-year-old told the Express News, before adding that he took a notice of the gunman’s vehicle number which was handed over by him to the local police for further investigation.

Akram, widely known to be one of the best fast-bowlers of all time, took an aggregate of 916 wickets in international cricket, before calling a time on his career in 2003.
