Srinagar , April 29: Former Australia top all-rounder Shane Watson and former South African batting genius AB de Villiers have recalled them facing Worlds fastest bowler Shoaib Akhtar.

On Wednesday, it was 20th anniversary of former Pakistan speedster breaking the 100 mikes barrier. Akhtar was first ever bowler to break the 100 miles per hour barrier. He bowled the searing thunderbolt to Craig McMillan in an ODI in Lahore on April 27, 2002.

To celebrate that feat Cricket Australia (CA) had shared a video of Shoaib Akhtar, bowling a stunning delivery against Shane Watson in Australian.

In a video, Shoaib Akhtar bowled a sharp bouncer to Shane Watson in an ODI in 2002 that even missed jumping wicketkeeper Moon Khan.

Watson replied to CA’s tweet appreciating Akhtar.

“What a way to spend my 21st birthday!! 😳😳😳, Shoaib Akhtar was so good and so bloody fast!”

AB de Villiers also shared his opinion by revealing that he still gets nightmares.

Shoaib Akhtar was termed as Rawalpindi Express. He clocked 100 mph twice in his career.

He played 46 Tests taking 178 wickets, 247 wickets in 163 ODIs, and 19 wickets in 15 T20Is.
