    November 16 down the years - Birth of the Burewala Bombshell

    1971
    Birth of the Burewala Bombshell. There have been few more scintillating sights in cricket history than Waqar Younis in his pomp. With batsman hopping and stumps flying, he and Wasim Akram took reverse-swing to a new level in the early 1990s with their toe-crushing yorkers. He was at his best in the early 1990s - after bursting onto the scene against New Zealand in 1990-91, Waqar took 109 wickets over a three-year period at an average of 18.07, at the incredible strike rate of 33.55 balls per wicket. He later became captain of Pakistan, and took 7 for 36 - the second-best figures in ODI history - against England at Headingley in 2001. He was also a huge success in county cricket, first for Surrey and then Glamorgan, for whom he took a career-best 8 for 17 against Sussex at Swansea in 1997.

    Waqar Younis was indeed one of the greatest bowler produced by Pakistan ............

    its quite unfortunate tht was victim of politics
    It’s better to keep your mouth shut and give the impression that you’re stupid than to open it and remove all doubt

      Birth of (arguably) the greatest, most devastating fast bowler of last 20 years.

        what a scintillating experience it was to hear from the commentators;
        at stumps flying all over the place

        Where the hell did all the money go !!
