List of international cricket five-wicket hauls by Saqlain Mushtaq

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Saqlain Mushtaq, a former Pakistani cricketer, took 19 five-wicket hauls during his career in international cricket.[1][2] A five-wicket haul (also known as a "five–for" or "fifer")[3] refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded by cricket critics as a notable achievement,[4] and fewer than 50 bowlers have taken more than 15 five-wicket hauls at international level in their cricketing careers.[2][5][6] A right-arm off break bowler who represented his country between 1995 and 2004, Saqlain was described by the BBC as "a revolution in the art of attacking off-spin bowling".[7] Saqlain was named by Wisden as one of their Cricketers of the Year in 2000.[8]

Saqlain made his Test debut in 1995 against Sri Lanka at the Arbab Niaz Stadium, Peshawar.[9] His first Test five-wicket haul came in 1997 against the same team at the R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo.[10] In January 1999 against India at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, he took a five-wicket haul in both innings of a Test match for the first time.[11] He repeated this feat only once more in his career, at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground, Delhi during the second Test of the same series.[12] His career-best figures for an innings were 8 wickets for 164 runs against England at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore in November 2000.[13] He took ten or more wickets in a match on three occasions.[14]

Having made his One Day International (ODI) debut in September 1995 against Sri Lanka at the Jinnah Stadium, Gujranwala,[15] Saqlain's first ODI five-wicket haul came the following year, against New Zealand, a match Pakistan won at the same venue.[16] His career-best bowling figures in ODI cricket were 5 wickets for 20 runs against England at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in 2000.[17] As of 2017, Saqlain is one of the four bowlers to achieve an ODI hat-trick (three wickets in consecutive deliveries) on two or more different occasions, both against Zimbabwe;[18][19][note 1] one of his hat-tricks came during the 1999 Cricket World Cup.[21][22] Saqlain took thirteen five-wicket hauls in Test cricket and six in ODIs.[5][6] As of 2017, he is fourth in the list of five-wicket haul takers for Pakistan, all formats of the game combined.[23]
