Waqar Younis


Waqar Younis 5-91 v EnglandBack to boards

Waqar Younis' only appearance on the Lord's Honours Boards came when he took 5-91 in Pakistan's two-wicket victory over England in 1992.

England won the toss and elected to bat first, with the Lord's crowd getting to witness Younis' talents for the very first time with the ball.

Once his legendary partner Wasim Akram had dismissed Graham Gooch for 69, Pakistan's bowling attack began to take control of the match with Younis' first wicket of the match seeing him remove Graeme Hick for 13.

Younis would finish the innings with a place on the Honours Boards, dismissing Allan Lamb, Sir Ian Botham, Chris Lewis and Phil DeFreitas as England crumbled to a score of 255 all out despite their promising start.

Following a score of 293 by Pakistan, the tourist again dominated with the ball with Younis taking a further two wickets in England's second innings, which - alongside four wickets from Akram - would eventually inspire his side to a two-wicket victory at the Home of Cricket,
