DateLine: 1st October 2009


Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram and former Australian skipper Steve Waugh have been inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame.


Herbert Sutcliffe, Clarrie Grimmett and Victor Trumper, are the other three cricketers who were added, bringing the total number of players in that club to 60. The trio is no more.


"It is a great honour to be inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame and to see my name feature alongside such greats of the game including the likes of Don Bradman," Steve Waugh said.


Akram said the induction is an acknowledgment of his career.


"This honour is the perfect icing on the cake of a decent career. It is a great feeling to know your contribution and achievements in this fascinating sport are being acknowledged in such a way," he said.
