New Delhi: Pakistani pacer, Shoaib Akhtar had earned himself the reputation of being one of the fastest bowlers on the planet during his peak. There was hardly any batsman who would have 100% of his concentration maintained and won't feel intimidated when it comes to facing Akhtar.
Here's one of such incidents when Australia A's Brad Haddin took two steps behind the stumps while facing a delivery from Shoaib Akhtar.
The ball was eventually called a 'No-ball' by the umpire and a free hit was given.
On the subsequent delivery, Haddin went behind the stumps again but the ball hit the stumps directly. Since it was a free-hit, the Australian batsman couldn't be given out.
