Cricket'Take money and get destroyed': Wasim Akram feels sorry for bowlers amid IPL run fest

Srinagar: Former Pakistan captain and KKR mentor Wasim Akram has said that he is happy to not playing in this era after seeing the IPL 2024 run fest in which bowlers are getting destroyed.

In the IPL 2024, Sunrisers Hyderabad have emerged as one of the front runners to secure an early place in the playoff stage of the Indian Premier League 2024. The Hyderabad side have shattered multiple batting records already in this tournament.
Impressed with the free-scoring SRH side led by World Cup-winner Pat Cummins, Wasim Akram has sympathised with the premier bowlers plying their trade in the cash-rich league.

Speaking to Sportskeeda ahead of SRH’s rematch with RCB, former Pakistan skipper Akram opined that bowlers are getting destroyed in the ongoing season of the IPL. “Thank God, I am not playing cricket in this era. I mean they are scoring 270 in 20 overs. It’s like 450 or 500 in a 50-over game. If it happened once, it was okay, but this has happened three-four times, which shows how strong the batting is. It is illegal to score 100 runs in 5 overs. How can this happen? Even if you bowl full-tosses, it is tough to do it. For bowlers, it has become like take money and get destroyed here. I feel for the bowlers in this format,” Akram said.

Akram branded SRH as the most destructive side in franchise cricket.
“Heinrich Klaasen is one of my favourite players in the world if you talk about white-ball cricket. His ability to hit sixes is incredible. Abdul Samad is doing a good job as a finisher. He is playing his role well. Also, Pat Cummins’ presence as a captain has brought some calmness in the SRH dressing room,” Akram concluded.
