Shoaib Akhtar made his prominence felt in the 1999 World Cup with a long, hurtling run-up and blistering speed. In 2002 he again gave a remarkable performance turning in two of the most blistering bowling efforts of the year, both against Australia. His two spectacular performances include the Brisbane 5 for 25 and Colombo with 5 for 21. He came back against England, finishing with 17 wickets and providing, in Michael Vaughan's words, the difference between the two sides.
