How Cricket Bat Grips Can Improve Your Game But the fact that Usain was even mentioned in the same sentence as a sprinter like Green was surprising to many. As a young child, he had passed the warm days playing soccer and cricket. Usain was an especially good bowler. One of his first sports idols was Waqar Younis, an internationally renowned Pakistani cricket star. Even as he started his sprinting career at Knibb, Usain still focused his athletic attention on cricket. Recognizing the teenager's blinding speed, his cricket coach encouraged him to give track a serious look. As compared to the test matches, ODIs are viewed with much greater interest. It is because many viewers like quick decisions and hate to wait for 5 long days to see the final results. Such viewers like to see the "making and breaking" of the cricket world record in just one go. Cricket world records in these tournaments are remembered more. But this does not mean that test match records do not carry importance. The basic difference is th ...

Akram is regarded as one of the greatest fast bowlers in the history of cricket. He holds the world record for most wickets in List A cricket with 881 and is second only to Sri Lankan off-spin bowler, Muttiah Muralitharan in terms of ODI wickets with 502. He is considered to be one of the founders and perhaps the finest exponent of reverse swing bowling. Akram had a very special talent to move the ball both ways in one delivery which is called "double swing of Wasim Akram". No one in cricket history has done it so far. [5][6][7] He was the first bowler to reach the 500-wicket mark in ODI cricket during the 2003 World Cup. In 2002 Wisden released its only list of best players of all time. Wasim was ranked as the best bowler in ODI of all time with a rating of 1223.5, ahead of Allan Donald, Imran Khan, Waqar Younis, Joel Garner, Glen McGrath and Muralitharan. [8] Wasim has taken 23 4- wicket hauls in ODI in 356 matches he played. [5] On 30 September 2009, Akram was one of five new members inducted into the ...
Pata nahi mujhe kya *** gya hay .! say Related koi status upload karnay ko dil hi nahi chahta. Waqar Younis aur Mohsin Hassan Khan ka phadda howa. Ma nay koi status upload nahi kya. Saqlain Mushtaq who highly deserved to be the bowling coach as he did not have any allegation of corruption was not selected and Mushtaq Ahmed was selected but I remained silent. Grant Flower was appointed as batting coach although we have more solid batsmen who are capable to do this job better than him, but i did not even bother myself to write on it. And today again when Court revert back Zaka ashraf as PCB Chairman and removed Najam Sethi ... i did not want to pass any comment .! Y? Y? Y?
for example Moin Khan, Zaheer Abbas, Waqar Younis? Why not Mohsin Khan or Wasim Akram?
In-dipper is a delivery which is a mixture of the yorker and inswing and the ball must be bowled at an express pace. Wasim Akram Home Page and Waqar Younis are regarded as the finest exponent of the in-dipper, but in my book it's Imran Khan (official) who had been the master in delivering those in-dippers. Imran's in-dippers were lethal - simply nailed the batsmen in no time. With a rhythmic and eye-catching action he used deliver those in-dippers which were a treat to watch for the cricket lovers. More often I use to watch his bowling display in England in 1982 and against India in 1982-83. Till that shin injury showed up, Imran's pace was terrifying and without a doubt Imran is my all-time favourite fast bowler and surely, the greatest bowler to deliver the in-dippers in the most effective manner.

Making Pakistan victorious in Asia Cup is top most aim: Moin Khan - LAHORE: Recently appointed Head Coach of Pakistan’s cricket team, Moin Khan has termed making Pakistan victorious in Asia Cup, as his topmost aim, ARY News reported. “With the victory in Asia Cup, we just want to show the cricketing world that Big 3 doesn’t make any difference for Pakistan’s cricket,” said Moin Khan. Moin Khan said taking fear of failure out from the players is necessary to defend the title of Asia Cup. My task is to win the tournament, you will see a positive attitude and positive body language," Moin added. Head Coach further said that "I know this team is capable of winning the Asia Cup again. No doubt our bowling has done well as compared to batting but I hope we achieve a balance. The more consistent we will be, it will give more confidence to the players.” Previoulsy, Moin Khan who was preferred over Waqar Younis, has also served as the manager of the national team and with the new role, he looks determi ...
Mark Nicholas name drops the double W's in his latest article about fast bowling "Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis had their moments"
In 70's 80's & 90's, there was a bunch of great fast bowlers, Imran Khan, Richard Hadlee, Malcolm Marshall, Michael Holding, Joel Garner, Wasim Akram, Curtly Ambrose, Waqar Younis, Denis Lillee, Courtney Walsh, Alan Donald, Shaun *** John Snow, Bob Wills... Also not to forget some spinners as Bedi, Qadir, Underwood, Kumble, Murali, Warne, Saqlain etc. This is the reason that players from that era as Sir Vivian Richards, Greg Chappell, Javed Miandad, Sunil Gavaskar, Brain Lara, Sachin Tendulkar, Alan Border, Steve Waugh etc have been rated so highly as they averaged 50+ against those bowlers (who themselves averaged 25 or less in tests) and spinners who dominated very well. Right now having an average of 50+ is not a big deal. Apart from Steyn. There is no bowler who lies in the league of those legends. Mitchel Johnson is improving day by day. But scoring runs against weak bowling sides doesn't make anyone a legend specially when you're playing against the 'legendary bowlers' of Bangladesh, Zimbabwe o ...
Btw, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis will be bowling in Ringwood today so if you're near there you should probably go watch that.

Waqar Younis can be a good commentator.But Pakistan batting except for Misbah lacked consistency.All getting out to reckless shots.
Sachin Tendulkar has been the most complete batsman of his time, the most prolific runmaker of all time, and arguably the biggest cricket icon the game has ever known. His batting was based on the purest principles: perfect balance, economy of movement, precision in stroke-making, and that intangible quality given only to geniuses - anticipation. If he didn't have a signature stroke - the upright, back-foot punch comes close - it's because he was equally proficient at each of the full range of orthodox shots (and plenty of improvised ones as well) and can pull them out at will. There were no apparent weaknesses in Tendulkar's game. He could score all around the wicket, off both front foot and back, could tune his technique to suit every condition, temper his game to suit every situation, and made runs in all parts of the world in all conditions. Some of his finest performances came against Australia, the overwhelmingly dominant team of his era. His century as a 19-year-old on a lightning-fast pitch at the ...

Waqar Younis likely to return as coach! *frowns and gives up hope of winning Asia Cup and T20 WC* . cc:
Experience and talent are two different things. While they can coexist, they still are very different. A talented person need not have experience and similarly an experienced person need not be talented. If you get a combination of both, thats great. Let us understand talent in perspective. Who is a talent in the first place? Is it somebody who achieves numbers or is it somebody who comes out with new ideas or is it somebody who adheres to policy? Big Question mark. My humble submission is that most of us do not know to identify talent. Case in point: Imran Khan is rated as one of the best talent hunters in the world of cricket.Look at the talent he unearthed. 1. Wasim Akram 2. Abdu Qadir 3. Inzamam ul Haq 4. Waqar Younis and many more. All these players turned out to be extremely successful. However none had international experience when they were identified. They gained experience moving on. Imran Khan had the guts to experiment with them whom he sternly believed were capable. His logic was that these p ...

*. Junaid Khan has become only third Pak FAST BOWLER after Waqar Younis and Razzaq to take 50 ODI wickets in a calendar year. +. ("WaHiD_KTK")
few years after Imran Khan was officially recorded as the third fastest bowler (in 1979) in the world – behind Australia’s Jeff Thomson and the West Indian tearaway Michael Holding and ahead of Australia’s Dennis Lillie – and before Pakistan cricket began firing in a spat of genuine pace men in the shape of Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Muhammad Zahid, Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Sami, there was one Atiqur Rehman. Even the most passionate Pakistani cricket fans know very little or maybe nothing about a bowler who could have become the Waqar Younis or Shoaib Akhtar of the 1980s. Those who are old enough to remember the 1983 Sri Lankan Under-19 team’s tour of Pakistan, may remember the sight of a young 17-year-old fast bowler from Karachi who was terrorising batsmen with sharp, fast and awkwardly rising deliveries even on the most placid of wickets. Yet, Rehman failed to play in even a single Test or an ODI. Arriving on the scene in 1982, by 1986 he was history (rather, a footnote). Born in 1965 in Ka ...

Funny story about how Waseem Akram, Waqar Younis and Inzimam ul Haq were selected in team,
Usain Bolt : In his personal life, Bolt expresses a love for dancing and his character is frequently described as laid-back and relaxed.[24][183] His Jamaican track and field idols include Herb McKenley and former Jamaican 100m and 200m world record holder, Don Quarrie. Michael Johnson, the former 200 m world and Olympic record holder, is also held in high esteem by Bolt.[24] According to the Catholic News Agency, Bolt is Catholic and is known for making the sign of the cross before racing competitively. His middle name is Saint Leo.[184] In 2010, Bolt also revealed his fondness of music, when he played a reggae DJ set to a crowd in Paris.[185] The first sport to interest Bolt was cricket and he said if he was not a sprinter he would be a fast bowler instead.[24] As a child he was a supporter of the Pakistani cricket team and admired the bowling of Waqar Younis.[186] He is also a fan of Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar, West Indian opener Chris Gayle[187] and Australian opener Matthew Hayden.[188] During . ...

Bilawal Bhatti reminds me Waqar Younis tour South Africa 1992-93 great find by Pakistan Cricket Team
International career Sachin Tendulkar Early career. Raj Singh Dungarpur is credited for the selection of Tendulkar for the Indian tour of Pakistan in late 1989,[62] and that also after just one first class season.[63] The Indian selection committee had shown interest in selecting Tendulkar for the tour of the West Indies held earlier that year, but eventually did not select him, as they did not want him to be exposed to the dominant fast bowlers of the West Indies so early in his career. Tendulkar made his Test debut against Pakistan in Karachi in November 1989 aged just 16 years and 205 days. He made just 15 runs, being bowled by Waqar Younis, who also made his debut in that match, but was noted for how he handled numerous blows to his body at the hands of the Pakistani pace attack.[64] In the fourth and final Test in Sialkot, he was hit on the nose by a bouncer bowled by Younis, but he declined medical assistance and continued to bat even as he gushed blood from it.[65] In a 20 over exhibition game in P ...
Sigh.. from Wasim Akram & Waqar Younis to crap bags like Sohail Tanvir and Wahab riaz.. :(
"I Was fielding in the covers Tendulkar came out to bat in his debut Test at Karachi. I still remember Waqar Younis was at his peak form at that time. Tendulkar tried to drive Waqar through the covers off his very first ball in Testcricket but was beaten all ends up. But I walked to captain Imran Khan and told him 'this kid looks very good' and imran agree with me." - Abdul Qadir
Waqar Younis and Narsingh Deonarine must be feeling so special and proud as they took first and last wicket of Sachin Tendulkar in test cricket.

Test hundred No . 18 - 136 Versus Pakistan at Chennai, January 1999. Result : Pakistan won by 12 runs. One of Tendulkar ' s most famous hundreds , notable for the fact that he batted with severe back spasms throughout the entire duration of his innings and almost took India home. When he fell with 16 runs required , there were 3 wickets still left but Pakistan came roaring back and won the match by 12 runs. The result disturbed Tendulkar so much that he didn ' t even turn up at the post - match presentation ceremony . On a turning wicket with India chasing 271 and Saqlain Mushtaq at his peak , aided by an exceptional attack which contained Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis as well, Tendulkar batted out of his skin when the others succumbed. He didn ' t put a foot wrong until that fatal across the line slog . Until Tendulkar was there, Pakistan didn ' t have a chance and that statement sums up the match perfectly. Had India gone on to win the match, the myth that Tendulkar never finishes off Test matches in the ...
Life comes a full circle for Sachin Mumbai, Nov 15 (IANS) Exactly 24 years to date, Sachin Tendulkar made his Test debut against Pakistan, and perhaps he walked off with the bat in hand for one last time Friday in his farewell Test — but not before playing a scintillating knock that the packed Wankhede Stadium will always remember. It was Nov 15, 1989 that Tendulkar played his first Test as a 16-year-old against Pakistan at Karachi’s National Stadium. The match is famously remembered for the teenager getting a bloodied nose, failing to negotiate a bouncer by another debutant Waqar Younis. Thus began the legend’s journey and it did not take long for him to capture the imagination of cricket buffs around the world and in the process he inspired three generations of international players. Not many were willing to wager on a Tendulkar century in his 200th Test, even against an innocuous West Indies attack. Bookies may have altered their odds after seeing the way he batted Thursday evening and the punter ...
Only player to score 50 and take a five-wicket haul in a match thrice. No other player has repeated this feat more than once.- 7 for 12, the best ODI figures recorded by a Pakistani bowler, the second best one-day bowling and the best for a spinner of all time.- Shahid Afridi is the only player in ODI history to score 7000 or more runs and take 350 wickets.- Only the eighth bowler, and the third Pakistan bowler after Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis, in ODIs to take these many wickets. 3rd highest wicket taker in T20's. - Only 4 players have won more Man-of-the-Match awards, but among active ODI players, only Jacques Kallis has more than Afridi.- His 21 wickets in 2011 World Cup are the most wickets by a Pakistani in any series and 7th on overall. - Joint on 2nd with most 5 fors in ODIs as captain, Most in World Cups, 3rd on the list of most 5 fors in ODI's just 1 behind Murali and 4 behind Waqar.- .

Before start of IND-WI series, West Indies looking to 'spoil' Sachin Tendulkar's farewell party, says Chris Gayle They actually spoiled the party to an irreparable degree and Rohit sharma seems to be the greatest 'flaw' in this celebration. You guys are comprehensively ruining the party and bringing an end of celebration before it starts. 10 days match reduced to 5 days. Weekend shows diminished. Weekend tickets wasted. All Sachin fans as well as star-sports is cursing you guys. _ Dear Sachin, Reconsider your decision and retire from retirement. You played against Imran Khan,Allan Donald,Courtney Walsh,Curtly Ambrose, Wasim Akram, Shane Warne, Muttiah Muralitharan , Glenn McGrath, Waqar Younis, Brett Lee, Dale Steyn, Shoaib Akhtar, Shaun *** Shane Bond, Lasith Malinga, Chaminda Vaas.and now you are retiring when 'laloo - poolu' bowlers are around. Regards 1989-2013
If you want to know about Mohammad Azharuddin & Sachin Tendulkar ask Allan Donald, Glenn McGrath, Curtly Ambrose, Waqar Younis, Shane Warne!
McGrath, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh - best fast bowlers of all time, IMO
on this very day a debutante met other debutante, Waqar Younis bowled against a young little boy named Sachin Tendulkar, celebrate this great rivalry, please dont forget Shivnarine Chanderpaul who is playing his 150th test match for West Indies . . have Sach's full of day
Mohammed Shami is impressive. As Wasim Akram described him, his pace and swing is very similar to young Waqar Younis.
Sachin paaji!, says Navjot Singh Sidhu Sachin ke saath meri hazaron yaadein hai. When I saw him make his debut in the first Test against Pakistan in 1989, we never thought he will go on to make 100 tons. But hamein pata tha woh ruhaani bachcha hai, jise bhagwan ne chhoti si umar mein India ke liye bhej diya. In one of the matches in Sachin's debut series, I was batting with Ravi Shastri when he got out to a bouncer by Waqar Younis. Then came Sachin. The first ball he faced was a bouncer that hit his nose. He started bleeding and fell unconscious. After coming to his senses, his nose filled with cotton wool, his jersey smeared with blood, he walked up to me and said, "Main khelega". I was shocked! He ended up scoring 57 not out. Then when I saw him hitting Abdul Qadir for three sixes in an ODI, I knew his passion was unparalleled.
Some Random thoughts about Sachin Though we know and we have seen every batting record virtually in his name, I'm completely impressed by his sporting persona and simplicity. He is regarded as god of cricket and he is ready to be lead by captains for whom is idol. ( Ex : Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, Saurav Ganguly). He is a great cricketing icon in a sport which is marred by Fixing and Ball Tampering. He is a great person when his fellow sportsperson are involved in outrageous and stupid acts like Brawling, Drinking and short temper. He is a legendary batsmen as praised by his opponent bowlers to name a few Waqar Younis, Wasim Akram, Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, Muttiah Muralitharan, Shaun *** and Allan Donald. I miss his trademark Uppish Square cut, Drives (especially on Bouncy Pitches), Straight Drives and Paddle sweep in a few days from now. - Dhanyavad (am) Tendulkar - from a common fan of Cricket and Tendulkar.
watching highlights of one of the best one day knocks ever.. Sachin hammering Pakistan in world cup 2003.. it was most brutal of innings..considering the opoonent, match situation nd especially seeing tht it was played against probably the finest attack of that time which comprised of i think best ever pace trio- Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, and Shoaib Akhtar.. nd he just teared apart them..first 5 overs of these genuine fast bowlers produced 50 runs.. as Wasim Akram told how after getting thrashed Shoaib Akhtar was reluctant to bowl any further to Tendulkar in the match..tht shot was not just a shot for mere 6 runs..it just stamped the authority of indian batsmen over Pakistani bowlers which was not tht common in decades of 80s nd 90s.. yes he might not hv got to score century in tht match but the knock will always remain at top of the list of finest innings ever..

Sachin of the 1,000 days: The Little Master's epic career Tendulkar's first innings in Test cricket is ended on 15 when he is bowled by another debutant, Waqar Younis. But he has already impressed, taking several blows to the body. At 16 years 205 days, he is the third youngest Test player (after two Pakistanis). He was directed towards cricket partly to curb his bullying tendencies, which seems astonishing given the patient chap he became. As a schoolboy he took part in an unbroken 664-run partnership with Vinod Kambli, another future Test batsman, and made 100 not out on his first-class debut for Mumbai against Gujarat when he was 15 in 1988. Day 44: 14 August 1990 India are up against it on the last day of the Second Test against England. At 109 for 4 when Tendulkar comes in they are heading for defeat at Old Trafford, chasing a nominal 408 to win. But Tendulkar scores the first of his 100 international hundreds, at 17 years 112 days old. Only Mushtaq Mohammad of Pakistan was a younger Test centurion. ...
True story of Indian pacers There’s a world of trial awaiting Mohammed Shami Sometimes indirectly, and sometimes with a rider in place, 23-year-old Mohammed Shami has already been compared to Waqar Younis. A 9-wicket-haul on debut is a big thing, especially when you are a fast bowler, and more so when you have grabbed the limelight with a sensational show of swing bowling. But however talented Mohammed Shami is, and however great the returns from his Test debut be, the world really needs to calm down about the latest pace sensation from India. It’s a very common tendency in India, and in the same breath, Indian cricket, to blow things out of proportion. Ishant Sharma, Irfan Pathan, RP Singh and Munaf Patel have been the recipients of over-the-top praise in Indian cricket in the past, and their examples are clear warnings for young pacers like Shami to not take a single milestone as a pointer of future greatness. When Munaf Patel made his debut in 2006, he bowled fast, hurried onto the batsmen and brok ...

My Sachin moment, and 8 myths about Tendulkar The year was 1989. A 16-year-old was making his Test debut in Karachi against the fearsome pace attack of Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis. I and my friends had heard of the batting wizard from Mumbai. The entire nation was looking forward to the match. The hype was such. I, however, had a problem. An exam the very next day. But I was lucky. One, there was a television at home, so I didn't have to go to the neighbour's to watch TV. Two, The television was a safe distance away from the kitchen, in a room in the farthest corner of the house. So that is how I saw Sachin for the first time -- television on mute. But a power cut meant I couldn't see him getting hit by a Waqar bouncer. Instead I got to see him bat with a band aid on his nose, with no idea what hit him. Then came my first Sachin moment, everyone in India has a few of them. After much haggling, I had got permission to watch India's innings in a one-dayer that ended an India-Pakistan exhibition match after ...
Sachin Tendulkar you are one of the reasons why we loved this game...

Sachin Tendulkar gave me invaluable insights into a top sportsperson’s psyche’ Narain Karthikeyan (right) recounted how Sachin Tendulkar came at the back of the grid, embraced him and wished him good luck before the first Indian Grand Prix started © Getty Images When Sachin Tendulkar plays his last and 200th Test match at the Wankhede Stadium next month, it will signal the end of an era in the history of the game. The retirement party would be something that the entire nation will participate in. I have been lucky enough to have shared some very special moments with the “God of cricket”, which I am able to share them with you through this piece. When Sachin started playing for India, I was quite young, but I vividly remember the tour of Pakistan, where he bled profusely while batting, after a ball [from Waqar Younis] hit his nose. But he continued to bat. Imran Khan was at the other end. It was a classic case of David vs Goliath, given the stature of both the players! Over the next few years, I . ...

One of the finest bowlers India produced. Ajit Agarkar. How can cricket fans forget his achievements which Is definately not general : Bowling Fame: # He was the fastest to take 50 ODI wickets in 23 matches. He broke the 26 year old record of Dennis Lillee (Aus) who had done it in 24 matches. Currently the record for fastest 50 ODI wickets is with Ajantha Mendis who achieved it in 19 ODI matches in 2008. Still Agarkar is the 2nd fastest to 50 ODI wickets and fastest Indian. The next Indian for this record is Irfan Pathan took his 50th wicket in his 31st ODI. # Agarkar is the fastest Indian to take 150, 200 and 250 ODI wickets. He finished with 288 wickets in 191 ODIs. # After 191 ODIs only 2 other bowlers had more wickets than Agarkar's 288 - Brett Lee (334) and Waqar Younis (307) (Shane Warne also had 288 wickets) # Ajit Agarkar is the 3rd Highest Wicket taker for India in ODIs and 13th Overall. # He has taken only 2 5 wicket hauls but he took 4 wickets in an Inning 10 times. His tally of 12 4-wicket hau ...
When 16-year-old Sachin Tendulkar faced his first ball in Test Cricket from Waqar Younis in November 1989, the Berlin Wall was standing, Saddam and Osama were still US allies, oil was at $19/barrel and the sensex was under 750 points, the Maruti 800 was a bold young challenger to the Ambassador and Fiat, the internet and mobile phones hadn’t come to India, and Doordarshan was the only TV channel. Eight Indian Prime Ministers and a mountain of mind-blogging statistics later, he retires as arguably the greatest batsman and inarguably one of the finest gentlemen to ever grace a cricket field. We all pay a tribute to the boy wonder who became a national deity.

We normally associate greatness with statistics (they might be misleading), but look at the statistics of Imran Khan in his last 51 test matches. He averaged 51.60 with the bat, and 19.90 with the ball. In my view, any batsman of 70s and 80s (unlike modern flat track "greats") was a true genius with an average of 50+, AND, any bowler with an average of less than 20 is automatically qualified as great. He was the same man who is the reason behind the success of legends Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis, the same man who captained Pakistan to their World cup win in Australia 1992. Then add to it, his captaincy against West Indies, England, India and Australia. AMAZING man. -
