Vaughany & Tuffers Cricket Club | Shoaib Akhtar on England's win and how to bowl at 100mph | Podcast

Telegraph, 07 Dec 2022
Michael, Phil and Ben reflect on England's sensational win over Pakistan in their first match there in 17 years.

Jimmy Anderson and Ollie Robinson starred with the ball while four of the batting line-up grabbed themselves a Test century. But it was the captaincy of Ben Stokes that was most impressive - Michael called it the best he's ever seen in a Test match!

Joining the show this week is the man nicknamed the Rawalpindi Express, Shoaib Akhtar. He discusses England's win, why their aggressive style is good for Test cricket and also the pitch which looked destined to leave us with a draw.

We also get his views on fast bowling, how players can work to improve their pace and his memories of dismissing Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar with the very first ball he bowled to him!
