Shoaib Akhtar retires March 17, 2011

Six of Shoaib Akhtar's best

ESPNcricinfo presents six of Shoaib Akhtar's best bowling performances
77

4 for 71 v India, Asian Test Championship, Kolkata, 1999
Two balls that silenced 100,000 spectators. Indian fans weren't too familiar with Shoaib Akhtar but he introduced himself in a manner that left a packed Eden Gardens shell-shocked in a minute. He broke through Rahul Dravid's defences with a fiery inswinging yorker that uprooted leg stump but what followed was unfathomable to the crowd then. India's best batsman strolled to the crease to wild cheers and walked back to the pavilion to stunned silence. Facing Shoaib for the first time, Sachin Tendulkar was at the receiving end of another inswinging yorker, which he failed to keep out and which sent the middle stump cartwheeling towards the wicketkeeper. Shoaib had well and truly arrived. He bagged eight wickets in a match-winning performance.

3 for 55 v New Zealand, World Cup semi-final, Manchester, 1999
Shoaib lit up the World Cup semi-final in Manchester in front of a partisan crowd to give his favourite opposition their first taste of what would be a regular diet from him. He hit 90 mph consistently and, though he went for a few, he aimed correctly and just at the right time to prevent New Zealand from posting a challenging score in what turned out to be a one-sided knockout. Shoaib bowled three spells, and dislodged a batsman in each. Nathan Astle was his first victim. Stephen Fleming had just slashed him to third man when Shoaib returned from round the wicket to fire in a 92mph yorker that cleaned up leg stump. And, in his final spell, pace gave way to subtlety as Chris Harris was undone by a superbly disguised slower ball. New Zealand were kept to 241 for 7, and Pakistan chased that down with no difficulty.

6 for 11 v New Zealand, 1st Test, Lahore, 2002
New Zealand were steamrolled with both bat and ball in Lahore and Shoaib joined in the hammering. New Zealand were up against it after Pakistan had piled up 643 in the first innings, and Shoaib's spell shut them completely out of contention. His six victims were all either bowled or lbw as his fiery pace and toe-crushing lengths simply proved too hot to handle. In a spell of fifty deliveries, Shoaib bagged 6 for 11 and skittled out New Zealand for 73, towards a massive defeat.

5 for 21 v Australia, 1st Test, Colombo, 2002
Australia's pre-eminence had rarely been challenged in the late nineties and the early noughties, but one Shoaib spell threatened to cause a major upset against a young Pakistan team. Pakistan were looking to limit the damage after conceding a lead of 188 in the first innings but Shoaib sprung the Colombo Test back to life in a spell that made a nonsense of an unfavourable pitch with searing pace. Called on to bowl for a second spell after Australia had been well-placed at 71 for 1, Shoaib fired in a series of inswinging thunderbolts that crippled a powerful line-up. Ricky Ponting, Mark Waugh and Steve Waugh were sent back in a matter of five deliveries and Adam Gilchrist was knocked off with a missile from round the wicket. Australia lost nine wickets for 53, of which Shoaib nipped out five, to collapse to 127 all out. The Pakistan batsmen, for their part, suffered a collapse of their own to lose by 41 runs.

5 for 25 v Australia, 3rd ODI, Brisbane, 2002
Shoaib starred in another significant win for Pakistan, this time helping them seal an ODI series in Australia. He had the cushion of a competitive score and derailed an Australian line-up that struggled to put up a challenge. Ponting fell to pace, Darren Lehmann was bowled round his legs, Michael Bevan was caught behind while the tail offered little resistance. Shoaib followed up three wickets in three overs with a couple more down the order to finish with 5 for 25 and catch Australia short by 91 runs.

6 for 30 v New Zealand, 2nd Test, Wellington, 2003
Shoaib's love affair with New Zealand's batting continued in Wellington, the hosts caving in to a devastating spell to set up a memorable victory for Pakistan. His pace acquired greater potency with the movement and swing in a windy Wellington and the New Zealand batsmen failed to measure up to that. Shoaib had picked up a five-for in the first innings but his batsmen had let that effort down, conceding a lead of 170. New Zealand looked good to put it beyond the visitors in the second innings before Shoaib struck. He removed a stodgy Mark Richardson and Scott Styris off successive deliveries, and combined with seamer Shabbir Ahmed to clean up the tail. New Zealand lost seven wickets for eight runs in 10.4 overs and Pakistan's batsmen stepped up in the second innings to chase down 274.

  • Percy_Fender on March 18, 2011, 12:49 GMT

    It was simply breath taking to watch Shoaib in his early days. He was really quick and looked the part in his run up till one saw the ball crash into the stumps. As OT12 says one of his best spells was indeed the one he bowled in a Test match in South Africa. That was truly heady stuff in a land where fast bowlers were commonplace. Thei batsman played fast bowling quite easily. But facing Shoaib was another matter altogether as it seemed that day. What was particularly endearing about him was that he had a sense of humour and could be a good acquaintance who could hav a lot of fun. He was not like others who believed that fast bowlers could only be temperamental. I wish him the very best in his retired days. We enjoyed Shoaib the cricketer who seemed to fit more in a bull fighting arena. A true Matador.

  • AW.Agar on March 18, 2011, 10:34 GMT

    He should play in twenty 20's

  • Double_A on March 18, 2011, 8:05 GMT

    Can't remember the year or the test, but sure remember the ball: Test match against Australia, in Australia, with Matthew Hayden facing. Shoaib bowls a wide-ish ball that Hayden looks to leave however it tails in late towards the left-hander and sends the off-stump cartwheeling. Amazing, classic Akhtar!

    what his sharjah spell where where pak were dismissed by sa for 166 and then shoaibs comeback spell where he destroyed southafricans

  • Gofi on March 18, 2011, 7:09 GMT

    Shoaib would join the ranks of Wasim and Waqar who were feared by most batsmen in world cricket.

    We will definitely miss his express/lethal bowling !!

  • TheRedKing on March 18, 2011, 6:10 GMT

    "CRICKET will miss you SHOAIB" ..... i never felt so sad on breaking with my gfs but your announcement made me cry and I am sad till the time I heard your retirement news, wondering that it is dream, not true :'( ...... Thank you for serving the CRICKET, sir......you are our PAK PRIDE .... :'( :'( :'(

  • on March 18, 2011, 6:04 GMT

    We love you speed star you really rocked all these years, you were phenomenal. and Specially you are a patriotic you denied to play ICL.You never been named in match fixing and I found you alway fighting for a win. Some time you proved to be expensive but it happens.

    I love when you destroyed South Africa in Sharjah Cup and helped Greens to lift the trophy.

    I will never forget you bro, you left the mark in our county and really feeling sad that after Saeed Anwar, Aamir Sohail, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younas, Muhammad Yousaf you will also disappear from the men in Green. You were the reason to be crowed pour in the stadium.

    Really Team loosing it's Star, Afridi in the only men now.

  • Nadeem1976 on March 18, 2011, 5:48 GMT

    I think those two balls he bowled against dravid and tendulkar were best balls akhtar ever bowled in his life. He also bowled Kallis clean bowled and Ponting clean bowled in same style. I will remember him for his extreme pace that legends can some time dont know where the ball is. At his best he was extremely fast and accurate. Salute to his performances and he was entertaining. His long run, his airborne style after taking wicket, his bannana curve yorkers , what bowler he was. Thanks for letting youngster a chance and retire at right time. Best of luck.

  • divya_siva on March 18, 2011, 5:48 GMT

    what a spell against south africa in a ODI where he took three wickets in an over and changed teh fate of the game. KLUSNER , BOUCHER AND SOME ONE ELSE

  • wasim_007 on March 18, 2011, 5:33 GMT

    What can I say you SHOIAB you are a Gem.....and more than a GEM....you played only for Cricket and Nation and Passion...we saw a lot bowler who used to play for money and fame but you played for the game of cricket and for the fan...for the country....you are EXTRAORIDINARY.....this is very hard to digest that you will be no more in action...WE ALL LOVE YOU!!!.....WE ARE DISAPPOINTED....EMBARRASSED...DEJECTED....AND MUCH MORE!!!!GOD BLESS YOU...MERE BHAI....GOD BLESS YOU....MAY ALLAHA GIVE YOU THE POWER TO CARRY ON GOOD DEEDS....

  • m.a.khokhar on March 18, 2011, 5:03 GMT

    what a fantastic match winner for Pakistan.. always wants to win always want to perform for his country .. Shoaib u r a true legend and one of the super fast bowler th game has ever produced... love u yara ..God bless u..

  • on March 18, 2011, 4:49 GMT

    since the begining if he would have played all the matches for pak , i think almost all the records were in favour of him.....never the less he is incredible. gud luck for ur next life

  • OT12 on March 18, 2011, 3:44 GMT

    What about his first 5 wicket haul where he crushed South Africa, that was one extreme fast bowling spell, I think it was his 2nd test. Other then that Shoaib will remain as one of the greatest sights of cricket, I wish we get anyone with such flare and presence in world of cricket, Shoab best of luck

  • Pankaj1955 on March 18, 2011, 2:43 GMT

    Not to say the least, Shohaib Akhtar was one of the most exciting bowlers subcontinent has produced. Yes, we Indians were bamboozled by him in Calcutta ' 99 show, but he was always one of the most popular players in this country. Considering his talent, he could have been like one of the all time greats such as Kapil Dev, Imran, Wasim, Murali or Kumble. It is a big loss to cricket that it was not to be.

  • on March 17, 2011, 23:15 GMT

    also a great moment was when he was dispatched for a few over thrid man by sachin in 2003 wc... he is only a handful of bowlers fast enough to feed sachin in that area for that shot, what a great site!!

  • on March 17, 2011, 23:05 GMT

    the best copy of legendary waqar younis...

  • Guduji71 on March 17, 2011, 22:33 GMT

    He is still a great bowler. His fitness has been an issue recently. His stats show his class. He will be missed not only by Pakistan but the whole 'fair' cricket loving fans of the world. Good Luck Shoab, you are another genious Pakistani.

  • crickorner on March 17, 2011, 22:30 GMT

    I think he was a great bowler but now he should retire right now.... let other players like wahab riaz and junaid khan take his place....!

  • on March 17, 2011, 21:41 GMT

    Am I the only one who feels that all 6 are bunched in a time period between 1999-2003. May be a fair indicator that Shoaib never really performed up to his potential after that period.

  • on March 17, 2011, 20:38 GMT

    Amazing pace bowler. We Indians will never forget the twin thunderbolts he bowled at Dravid and Tendulkar. Awesome spell.

  • Smartcricketer90 on March 17, 2011, 20:18 GMT

  • on March 17, 2011, 14:55 GMT

    2002 seems to be the very best of the best year for the rawalpindi express.

  • lateswing_witholdball on March 17, 2011, 13:34 GMT

    A great bowler, if he had the mentoring which wasim/waqar got he would have been even bigger. Aussies were tough on him like murlitharan and controversies hit when he reached australia, but he replied in the best way, getting through there top order like a knife through butter... and that too on asian (dead) wickets...

    he will be missed... a true great fast bowler... cricinfo should publish a list of consistently fast bowlers... shoaib would top that ... easy i think...

  • on March 17, 2011, 13:13 GMT

    I simply love this guy a pure legend.

  • aa61761 on March 17, 2011, 12:44 GMT

    What a speedster you were. It is very painful not to see you again bowling fast inswing Yorkers. It has to happen some day and you have made a good decision to retire at the same time. Give us the World Cup and end your career on high. I still can not forget your 2nd innings bowling against Australia in Colombo 2002 and how can someone forget those 2 delivers you bowled to Sachin & Dravid. You been a great servant of Pakistan cricket and doesn't matter what people same about you; you will be missed badly. You always were a crowed puller. You are champion and will be champion bowlers.
