    1982: A Reverse Story

    As much as I read about this second test in National Stadium Karachi won by pakistan against India in 1982, I feel to grab the video from anywhere possible in the world...

    Pakistan 452 (Zaheer 186, Mudassar 119, Kapil 5-107) beat India 169 (Kapil 73, Qadir 4-67) and 197 (Vengsarkar 79, Imran 8-60) by an innings and 86 runs


    Cricinfo refers to it as "The Birth of the reverse swing"

    My cricket career (as a fan & Mohalla Cricket) started in around 1984... around 1982, I had barely started going to school and do not remember much about it... Too bad I missed that with couple of years....

    anyway, so who's got a hold on this game video.. preferably Windows Media Video or the like :-P

    The last couple of lines of the article read:

    With useful contributions from Imran and Wasim Bari, Pakistan ended up with 452. India stayed in the battle for a couple of hours, after which it was all Imran.

    and yes thanks for contributing to my earlier conquest of 1992 worldcup semi final

      Well, I guess you were born a couple of years too late. Watching Imran run in from a long runup and deliver those banana shaped deliveries was a sight for the sore eyes. Too bad the TV coverage around that time wasn't too great. India had no answer to Imran, Zaheer Abbas, and Mudassar Nazar. Zaheer was hitting a century or a double century almost every game, and Mudassar was doing the same. Imran took I think 40 wickets in that series. It was after this series where Imran had the shin injury and had to play the 1983 World Cup only as a batsman.

          The famous Imran Spell in that match - where he literally bammbboozzalledd the batsmen

          The famous Vishwanath delivery - Vishu had ohhh so elegently left the ball - going OUTSIDE off stump - bat high in the air - only to watch the ball swing almost 3 FEET

          stumps knocked right out of the ground

                  Imran bowled two such spells during that series. I saw both of them live, and then recorded them on VCR and ultimately saved them carefully in my memory. Now I am replaying them as I type this. Ah wonderful stuff!!!

                  Sorry, can't share those with you guys
