LAHORE: Six Pakistan cricket legends Zaheer Abbas, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Hanif Mohammad, Imran Khan and Javed Miandad have been inducted in the first ever PCB Hall of Fame list.
The first group of six PCB Hall of Famers are the Pakistan members of the ICC Hall of Fame and have hence earned an automatic induction. Zaheer Abbas, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis have expressed delight at their induction in the list.
There will be three more inductions each year from 2021 with the inductees to be chosen by an independent panel and announced on 16 October, day one of Pakistan’s inaugural Test in 1952.
Players retired from international cricket for, at least, five years will be eligible for induction into the PCB Hall of Fame.
Wasim Akram congratulated the PCB on launching the initiative, saying that it will go a long way in further motivating the players.
