    Shoaib Akhtar

    The legend of Pakistan cricket Shoaib Akhtar is widely regarded to be one of the best fastest and most feared bowlers in the history of international cricket. He was called ?Pindi Express? , Tiger and ?The Terrarest of Cricket?. In 1999 Akhtar captured eight wickets in the Asian Test championship match at Calcutta, India ? In this match he clean bold Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar at successive deliveries. Ironically it was the first ball he ever bowled to Sachin Tendulkar. He is also known as one of only three bowlers to have ever broken the 100 mph barrier in cricket history, with a delivery of 101.3 mph, during the 2003 World Cup against England, and this delivery stands as the fastest recorded to date.
