The Pakistani cricket team might be flopping miserably, but its yesteryear fast-bowling legends continue a hoary tradition of performing off the field. The latest to join the elite list is Wasim Akram, arguably the best left-arm fast bowler the world has ever seen, when he got engaged to his Australian girlfriend Shaniera Thompson.
