After speedsters Shoaib Akhtar and Muhammad Asif’s date with controversy, heads turned to Umar Gul to spearhead Pakistan’s pace attack in 2006. It had been three years since Gul made his debut in 2003 at Sharjah, replacing the Pakistani spell that failed to impress during the World Cup. With a flowing high-arm action, Gul’s precision, panache with swing, and ability to bowl yorkers at will meant in him, Pakistan found its replacement for the legendary Waqar Younis.
