Any way he was one of the best bowler in world. In his test career, he took 414 wickets in 104 matches with the average of 23.62 and scored 2898 runs as well with the average of 22.64. In One Day internationals he is the most wicket taker bowler in world with the figure of 502 in 356 matches. With the average of 23.52 and as a good all-rounder he scored 3717 runs with the average of 16.52. The impressive thing about Wasim Akram was that he has more than 400 wickets in both type of cricket.
