کرکٹ کی تاریخ کا حیران کن واقعہ! پاکستان کے نو کھلاڑی آؤٹ ہو چکے تھے جو کوئی نہ کر سکا شعیب اختر نے آخری وکٹ پر وہ کمال کر دیا

Shoaib Akhtar was never known for his batting in the world of cricket. He was a fast bowler and hence he was known for his aggressive pace and lethal wicket taking ability. He was fast and there is no doubt in it. In fact Shoaib Akhtar was the fastest bowler in the history of cricket. This is one achievement that we have not seen taken by any other international bowler. There were many fast bowlers hailing from different countries who were all very fast when they were at their in those days there were no speed guns invented to measure the speed of their deliveries. Shoaib had speed guns in his era and as per them he used to clock 90 mph most of time. Those who have seen and played cricket know that this is a pace which is really hard for a bowler to maintain because this is seriously fast.

He hit the hundred mile barrier twice in his career. He was not that much fit when he started playing international cricket and yet he did some unbelievable work with the ball. Shoaib Akhtar with the bat is a different story. He had some good moments with the bat as well. This innings of him was played in the beautiful city of Cape Town. Now those who are known to this city know that fact that in the night under the lights, the ball moves a lot in the air. Due to the sea near by the ball swings under lights and batting in the second innings in Cape Town is always hard. There is a batting wicket prepared in Cape Town most of the time for an international game. But the wicket plays no role under the lights in the evening and night as the ball moves massively and the batters always struggle in that period.

One such moment was when he hit his highest ODI score of 43 against England. It was a world cup game back in 2003 which Pakistan lost to England at Cape Town. Shoaib was the highest scorer for Pakistan in that game and he hit some stunning shots in the match. It was an important game of cricket in that world cup for the Pakistan team. They had to win this one in order to move forward. Unfortunately Pakistan could not win this one as they were batting second and under lights the ball swung and we all know the history of Pakistani batters against moving ball. They all struggle big time and as a result the match was won by England. Shoaib hit some lusty blows in his innings but they were all not that significant. Pakistan could not win the match at the end.
