The young bowler has caught the eye of Pakistan's legendary Wasim Akram and ha an action that is distinctly similar to the left-arm pacer. A video of the young child bowling went viral on Thursday.

Video of a young boy bowling at a single stump emerged and was quickly circulated around the Pakistan cricket community — with fans marvelling at his ability to bowl with such control, pace and swing at such a remarkably young age.

The video soon landed in front of Sultan of Swing Wasim Akram.
