International Cricket Five-Wicket Hauls by Wasim Akram
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wasim Akram, a retired Pakistani cricketer, took 31 five-wicket hauls during his career in international cricket. In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "five-for" or "fifer") refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded as a notable achievement, and fewer than 30 bowlers have taken more than 15 five-wicket hauls at international level in their cricketing careers. A fast bowler who represented his country between 1984 to 2003, the BBC described Akram as "[o]ne of the greatest left-arm bowlers in the history of world cricket," while West Indian batsman Brian Lara said that Akram was "definitely the most outstanding bowler [I] ever faced."
