Pakistan cricket is known to have churned out some of the best pacers from time to time, who have gone on to serve the national cricket team for years and made a name for themselves with their extra pace, swing and bounce.

One among such plethora of bowlers who came into the ranks from the Men in Green was Shoaib Akhtar, who is also known as the Rawalpindi Express.

Akhtar represented the Men in Green in a total of 224 matches in all forms of the gentlemen's game.

In turn, he returned with 444 wickets and remains one of the most lethal fast bowlers of all-time. He also holds the record of bowling the fastest delivery in international cricket against England during the 2003 World Cup in South Africa.
