About this title

Synopsis:

Shoaib Akhtar has been one of the most colourful characters in the history of cricket. He is the fastest bowler in the world, who set an official world record by achieving the fastest delivery when he clocked in at 161.3 km/ph (100.2 mph) twice in the same match. Having taken more than 400 wickets in international cricket, he is a phenomenal cricketer too. Tagged as being undisciplined, Akhtar's career has been plagued by injuries, controversies and accusations of poor attitude. Here he tells his side of the story. The early years of deprivation, the relentless self-imposed discipline, the way he played both on the cricket grounds and outside. His is also the inside story of Pakistan cricket, no holds barred: the strange ways of the cricket board, the hierarchies and manipulations and, above all, the magic of the game itself.

About the Author:

Shoaib Akhar is a former Pakistani cricketer and fast bowler. Called the Rawalpindi Express for having the fastest ball in recorded modern cricket, his performance boosted Pakistani cricket performance in the 1990s and he has been called a legend of Pakistani cricket.

His successes include bowling Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar off successive deliveries at the Asian Test championship match at Calcutta, and that ball was the first he ever bowled to Tendulkar. He retired from professional cricket in 2011, following the world cup.
