Islamabad:While India and Pakistan battled it out in the opening One-day cricket match at Karachi on Saturday, former Pakistan captain and legendary pace bowler Wasim Akram surrendered himself before a sessions court in the same city to escape arrest warrant issued in connection with a dispute over the ownership of a vehicle.

Akram surrendered to the court on Saturday as it declared him an absconder for failing to respond to its summons in connection with a criminal case filed by an old acquaintance, Saadat Hussain, who claimed that the former pace bowler had taken his jeep in 1996 and failed to return it.

Akram surrendered before the court and was granted bail after he furnished surety for Rs 5000.

Hussain had filed a police complaint against Akram stating that he lent his jeep to the former cricketer in 1996 at Lahore and Akram failed to return it and later even made alterations and continued to use it.
