May 25, 2011
The very first time when one achieve a champion’s title, it is splendid and becomes memorable for a lifetime.Wasim Akram in 1989 made his first Hat trick during an International cricket match between Pakistan and West Indies. In Sharjah playing against West Indies in a champion’s trophy, Wasim knocked down Malcolm Marshall, Jeff Dujon and Curtly Ambrose giving Pakistan an incredible win.
Wasim’s first Hat trick reassured the talent he possessed which flourished later and bestowed a series of achievements in International Cricket. Akram has not only given his career a boost with his outstanding performance but also represented the Pakistan cricket team internationally to be recognized among other teams.
Pakistan got an 11 run win in against West Indies which also entitled Wasim as Man of the Match. He managed to give 38 runs in 9.4 overs taking 5 wickets including the Ha-trick. Wasim’s first Hat trick was a moment of sheer joy and complete victory. He sustained a thrilling affect on the confronting team by taking their most reliable and valuable wickets.
With his outstanding bowling during One Day International, West Indies with much effort could not secure its position and lost the match. Our left-arm fast bowler hit both Marshall and Ambrose between his eight over, which weakened West Indies’ back. Wasim once again emerged as an unbeatable bowler who can take his team towards victory in just an instant or by one wise move.
His strategy never fails when it comes to making the wickets fall. Therefore, he will always be remembered as a legend that will be followed by everyone playing cricket on the streets of Pakistan and even in international grounds.
