Video: Wasim Akramâ€™s once in a century delivery against England
In a Test match against England at Oval in 1996, ace pace-man and Sultan of swing, Wasim Akram bowled a wondrous delivery to Robert Croft to leave everyone gasping for breath.
Delivered from round the wicket by Wasim Akram, it seemed like a normal delivery. It angled down the leg side and for a moment it looked ripe for Croft to flick it through the mid wicket region. Croft missed it and it hit his pad for Akram to go for an appeal.
In the slow motion replay though, everyone was shell-shocked, as instead of angling down the leg side, the ball had swung the other way. But as it happened so quickly, it deceived everyone including perhaps the magic-man from Pakistan - Akram.
