English right-arm pacer James Anderson praised former Pakistani pacer Mohammad Asif’s skills. “I studied Asif closely to learn the wobble seam,” Anderson said. “That helped me become a better bowler,” he said. Fast bowler James Anderson said that before the 2010-11 Ashes series, he watched Muhammad Asif bowl a wobble sam from a Coca-Cola ball. That inspired me to watch his videos.
Before the 2010-11 Ashes series, we played a series against Pakistan, in which a spot-fixing case was very popular, yet the way Asif bowled was astounding,” pacer James Anderson observed.
