Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis were Pakistan’s greatest bowling duo as on their day they could destroy any batting lineup that came against them. 14th December was one such day when the two Ws led Pakistan to a famous victory against Zimbabwe at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in 1993.
In this low scoring test match Pakistan set Zimbabwe a target of 240 runs and the visitors were on their way to a memorable victory as they marched to 135 having lost just one wicket. But at this very point the two Ws came to the party. Wasim picked up 5 wickets while Waqar Younis bagged four wickets as the Zimbabwe batting lineup was blown away after conceding just 52 more runs.
Waqar Younis was declared man of the match for picking up 9 wickets in the match.
