Happy Birthday Shoaib Akhtar: Five Greatest Spells By The ‘Rawalpindi Express’
Former Pakistan Speedster, Shoaib Akhtar turns 44 on Tuesday. Born on August 13, 1975, the right-arm-pacer is regarded as one of the most fearsome bowlers to have played the game. Known as Rawalpindi Express, the bowler was gifted with lightning-fast speed. His deliveries have also injured many batsmen, forcing them to leave the field. The veteran used to follow the nose and toes policy as the pacer looked to disturb the batsman with a bouncer and then rattle the stumps with a toe-crushing Yorker.
