Wahab Riaz blowing fire on the 22 yardsYeah, you read it right folks, the Pakistani speed demon; Wahab Riaz had lighted up the 22 yards against the Baggy greens with his vicious spell of bowling in the World Cup Quarter-final. Riaz’s spell caught the Aussies completely off-guard. The left-armer’s raw pace and perfectly directed bouncers became a shivering prospect for the Aussie all-rounder, Shane Watson. On a flat Adelaide pitch, the zip with which this Pakistani pacer was bowling captivated the fans all around the globe. It even got him appreciation from the West Indies legend, Brain Lara. Unfortunately, his efforts went in vain as Australia won the match and progressed to the finals but his spell will go down as one of most hostile spells of fast bowling ever witnessed in ODI cricket.
