Fast bowler Jodi Waseem Akram and Waqar Younis have been honored with the Hilal-e-Imtiaz of Pakistan's second highest civilian award in world cricket. The award was given by Pakistani President Araf alawi to Akram and Younus.

Wasim and Waqar (1995), who won the Pride of Performance Award in 1992, along with Spinner Yasir Shah, received Pakistan's third highest civilian award, Sitar-i-Imtiaz. When the awards were announced, the Pakistan Cricket Board said that 'three were entitled.'

PCB said, "Wasim and Waqar are respected commentators and they have played a role in enhancing the image of Pakistan and cricket as a commentator, while Yasir has been part of Pakistan's biggest Test victory in recent times."

Wasim and Waqar, who were part of Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan's team, who won the World Cup in Australia in 1992, played an important role in ensuring that Pakistan remained one of the top teams of their time.

Akram finished his international career with 916 wickets almost two decades later, while Waqar retired with 789 wickets in nearly 15 years of career.
