    Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram has achieved it all on the cricket field. He has over 900 international wickets, was part of the 1992 World Cup winning squad and retired as the greatest left-arm bowler of all time.

    There are numerous highlights in his glittering career but one particular match remains etched in his mind to this day. And that is the 1999 win in the Chennai Test against India.

    Widely considered as one of the greatest wins in Pakistan’s Test history, the Akram-led team defended a total of 271 in Chennai despite a magnificent century by Sachin Tendulkar.

    India were well placed in the chase at 218-5 but Pakistan held their nerve and thwarted Tendulkar who was battling severe back issues. So brilliant was Pakistan’s 12-run win that the team received a standing ovation from the Chennai crowd, which remains one of the most poignant moments in Test cricket.
