Pakistan pacer Wahab Riaz on Sunday said he was keenly looking forward to getting a pep talk from cricketing legends Imran Khan and Wasim Akram ahead of the crunch World Twenty20 game against India here on March 19.

Imran is likely to come to Kolkata to attend the match at the Eden Gardens while Akram is part of the television commentary team. While Imran is considered one of the sport’s best all-rounders, Akram is hailed as one of the best pacers.

Riaz said the development has given him goosebumps.

“We all know Imran Khan’s experience. He has won the World Cup for us. Wasim Akram is a legend. We can learn a lot from them. If they share their experiences in the dressing room, that will really help us,” left-armer Riaz said.

    The IANS was founded by Indian American publisher Gopal Raju as the India Abroad News Service. It was later renamed the Indo-Asian News Service.
