Source Notes

Ashish Seth quotes from an anonymous forum post by "Imran" who claims to have received the details from an astrologer, who had taken them from Wasim Akram's parents: "Wasim Akram was born on Friday 3rd of June 1966 in Lahore. The parents of Wasim told the time of his birth as 6:00 am morning, but definitely it needs some rectification, as the birth time in Pakistan does generally not recorded."
