Dubai: Wasim Akram has alleged English and Australian cricketers practised ball tampering before they learnt the art of reverse swing.
“Nobody knew for 15 long years what we were actually doing. They thought it was ball tampering. But in fact it is reverse swing,” Akram said. “In England when I was playing County cricket, they said ball tampering was when one scratched the ball. “Later in England and Australia, bowlers resorted to applying vase,” he was quoted in a paper.
