Wasim Akram Plays For India!

A fairy appears to one of India's fast bowlers and grants him a wish. His eyes immediately pop up and looking into the distance expectantly he says, "Wish I could bowl like Wasim Akram for one day."

Sachin On Song
Sachin gives the Englishmen a torrid time. India are well placed for a score of 300. 90/1 in 15.
Killing Sachin's Song
Sachin exits & India are able to manage only 64 in the next 21 overs. A late rush by Dravid 62 (72) & Yuvraj 42 (38) help India reach 250.
Gully Cricket
Andy Caddick's last over sees 4 wickets in 4 balls. The best of gully cricket you will ever get to see.
Kaif does a Jonty Rhodes
Zaheer gets Knight & Kaif does a Jonty to get rid of Trescothick. England are 18/2 in 7.
Wasim Akram Ashish Nehra !
Wasim Akram Nehra bowls the spell of a lifetime 10-2-23-6. England have no clue to what they are experiencing.
Last Man Standing
Freddie's efforts are in vain. England crumble for 168 in 45.3. Nehra should have wished to bowl like Akram forever. Sigh!
