Waqar Younis (8/10)

Waqar Younis has represented Pakistan in 87 Tests and 416 ODIS across the globe. His bowling performance had earned him the title of “The Burewala Express.” One of ‘The Two Ws’ along with Wasim Akram, Waqar made a routine out of landing four or five wickets in every Test innings. He repeated this spell in 22 different matches, and at least five teams he managed to pick ten or more wickets in a single Test match. Providing a classy alternate to the rising fast and short bowling back in his day, he brought in his signature style of full and fast. Aiming for the batsmen’s toes with this style of bowling, he also added the title of “The Toe Crusher” in his long list of accolades awarded to him by the fans. He was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in December 2013, and have served as the coach for Pakistan team, and as a commentator.

Some extra trivia for you: Waqar Younis was 22 years old when he became the youngest captain of Pakistan National team, and went on to represent Pakistan in 17 Test matches and 62 ODIs as the captain.
