Top 10 Greatest Pakistani Bowlers of All Time


9. Aaqib Javed :

Top 10 greatest pakistani bowlers of all timeIf there is any talk on a man, who even after possession of prodigal swinging abilities was underrated, then the name of Aaqib Javed will spring to our minds. He was overshadowed by the radiance of Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis during his playing days.

He made his international debut, when he was only 16 years old in 1988/89 season. He had a special love affair with the arch-rivals: Indian team against whom he picked up 54 wickets in 39 ODI’s with three 5-wicket hauls. He is also the youngest bowler to take a hat-trick in ODI’s which he took to deflate the Indians. He also gave tremendous support to Wasim Akram and Imran khan in 1992 World Cup in the absence of Waqar Younis.

He featured in 185 international matches for the Pakistani team and took 236 wickets. He accumulated five 5 wicket hauls and four 4-wicket hauls in his career.
