Former Pakistan captain, Wasim Akram

Wasim Akram, a retired Pakistani cricketer, took 31 five-wicket hauls during his career in international cricket. In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "five–for" or "fifer")[1][2] refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded as a notable achievement,[3] and fewer than 30 bowlers have taken more than 15 five-wicket hauls at international level in their cricketing careers.[4][5] A fast bowler who represented his country between 1984 to 2003, the BBC described Akram as "[o]ne of the greatest left-arm bowlers in the history of world cricket",[6] while West Indian batsman Brian Lara said that Akram was "definitely the most outstanding bowler [I] ever faced".[7]

Akram made his Test debut in January 1985,[8] in an innings defeat by New Zealand in Auckland.[9] The following Test, in a man-of-the-match performance, he took ten wickets over the two innings, securing his first two five-wicket hauls but still ended on the losing side.[10] He took another pair of five-wicket hauls in a single match five years later, against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).[11] His career-best figures for an innings were 7 wickets for 119 runs against New Zealand in Wellington, in February 1994.[8]

Making his One Day International (ODI) debut in 1984 against New Zealand in Faisalabad, Akram's first ODI five-wicket haul came the following year against Australia in a match which Pakistan won at the MCG.[12] In 1989, he took five wickets in an innings, in a performance that included a hat-trick (three wickets in consecutive deliveries), against the West Indies.[13] His career-best bowling in ODI cricket was 5 wickets for 15 runs against Zimbabwe in Karachi, in December 1993.[8]

Retiring from international cricket in 2003 after nearly 20 years,[8] Akram took 25 five-wicket hauls in Test cricket and 6 in ODIs. As of December 2009, his position in the all-time lists for taking five wickets in an innings the most times is seventh overall in both Tests and ODIs.[4][5]
