    Will he do it?

    Wasim Akram has 490 ODI wickets.

    Potentially he may only have 6 matches left till he retires. Will he get the necessary wickets or won't he?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    If he plays against Namibia and Netherlands he will.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    He might not even retire
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box

    He's stated that he will probably

    Anyway what is really surprising me is that he keeps taking OD Matches off...I see it that he doesn't really want 500 Wickets, although I sure as hell would!

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    He was the first one to get to 400 so he must be hopeful og getting to that 500 figure to make it a landmark, a symbol of the achievements of this great pace bowler.......

    Yeah but just taking matches off as he pleases shows that either he's super confident he'll get the Wickets in the WC or he just doesn't care...

    Is it him missing them or is he being left out by the management?

    Well Mark always had doubts over Akram getting 500 wkts in ODI.I can safely say that if Akram do play all the 6 WC matches then he will surely get the ten wkts to reach the 500 mark!
