Islamabad: Tall fast bowler Mohammad Irfan wants to increase his pace as he gets tips from legendary fast bowler Wasim Akram for this June's Champions Trophy in England.
At 7-foot-1 (2.16 meters) Irfan is the world's tallest pace bowler and has taken 14 wickets in nine one-day internationals in an injury-hit career.
The 30-year-old Irfan was sidelined for more than two years due to injuries after making debut in 2010 against England before becoming an integral part of the national team since December last year.
Irfan says his height is a "big advantage for me, but I have to add some speed in my bowling."
Akram has been training Pakistan fast bowlers at a camp in Karachi and Irfan says "it's great help to get tips from a legend."
