During his playing days, Shoaib Akhtar terrified batters with his raw pace. The former Pakistani player holds the record for bowling the fastest pitch (161.3 km/h, 100.2 mph). He also often turned out to be a handful for the Indian batters, getting quite a few runs at times. The way he destroyed India’s top league in the 1999 Test at the Eden Gardens is legendary. In the first innings, he took four wickets, including those from VVS Laxman, Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar. In the second innings, he was accused of hindering the field while Sachin was running and was eventually out.
