Saqlain is undoubtedly one of the best spin bowlers to have ever played the game of cricket. He revolutionised this art with his deadly Doosra – an invention of his that was used to great affect during his career.
The legend Muttiah Muralitharan himself said, “Saqlain invented the Doosra. He showed me the way”.
His figures and stats are extremely impressive, and during his short and sweet career (cut back by injuries) he etched his name in the record books with sheer talent and hard work. To this day his records are intact and his achievements are in abundance.
