Don’t Become Andre Nel: Wasim Akram Gives Important Suggestion To Gerald Coetzee


Wasim Akram has been impressed by the spirited performance of Gerald Coetzee in this tournament so far and has considered him the future superstar of cricket. He has shown the potential of his all-rounding abilities in the much-needed semi-final game against Australia. He scored some vital runs with the bat in the first innings and also took some important wickets in the second innings.

Although his great character couldn’t ensure the win for South Africa, his aggressive and fighting character has impressed the former Pakistani bowler, Wasim Akram. He stated in a recent interview that He is the next superstar of South African cricket. Gerald Coetzee bowled around 150 kmph constantly and looked into the eyes of Australian batters. He is young, talented, hungry, and has a good attitude to become a future superstar. However, my suggestion would be, “Don’t become Andre Nel”.

Andre Nel was popularly criticized for his aggressive and rude behaviour, which didn’t allow him to play for South Africa for so long.
