Shahid Afridi Bowled to Chris Gayle. Wahab Riaz was the man who had to go through the same kind of beating as Abdul Razzaq got from Azhar Mahmood. The former bowling coach of Pakistan cricket team in the recent world cup won the battle against the current bowler. The current bowler of Pakistan cricket team got the fame through his real pace when he bowled to Shane Watson in the world cup. That spell of the bowler against Shane Watson was the popular spell of the world cup.
Wahab Riaz was one of the main bowlers of Pakistan in the world cup in the twenty over that held in India. He did not perform according to expectation. They both had the competition when Azhar Mahmood faced him for the very first time in England. Azhar Mahmood smashed him in that over. The left arm bowler had to be feel really ashamed.
That match was played in England and was watched by the people living in England. The weather of England did not get warm. Pakistan pace man never thought of getting hit by Azhar Mahmood. Azhar Mahmood told the selectors that he still had some cricket left. He showed the cricket fans that he could be part of the shorter format.
Wahab Riaz also had played in the previous county matches in England but he was not as popular as he was now. Azhar Mahmood on the other hand gave the same sort of performance in England in the last county tournament that was played. He had got the same four wickets in his spell of four overs and also smashed forty odd runs.
Wahab Riaz had generated lots of pace in the match against Australia. That match was not played in England so he did not have the bounce in the recent match. He got one wicket but then later on did not perform well.
