8. Ahsan Malik 5-19 vs South Africa, Chittagong, 2014
Netherlands had been in limelight due to some splendid performances all around the ground during the 2014 edition of T20 World Cup. Nevertheless winning against a team like South Africa is always a tough ask. Swart gave Netherlands their first breakthrough after electing to bowl on a decent tack. Ahsan Malik tested the batsmen with his variations right from the beginning, thereby sending well set Hashim Amla back to the pavilion. Malik was constantly looking to attack the stumps, and hence went on to take the 1st 5 wicket haul of that tournament. Netherlands unfortunately fell short of 6 runs to win the match, but Ahsan’s spell proved to be one of the best spells in a World Cup game.
