Cricket is considered a batter’s game where bowlers do the hard work of running in and bowling to them all day long. However, some bowlers give a hard time to the batters as they trouble them with their numerous variations. There have been many top bowlers in cricket history who had it in them to bowl out an opposition single-handedly. But what if they were paired with another bowler of similar ability, how would that turn out for the batters? On that note, let’s pair some great bowlers from both past and the present era of cricket to create some lethal bowling combinations:
Brett Lee, Shoaib Akhtar
Both Brett Lee and Shoaib Akhtar were the most feared bowlers in the cricketing world in their playing days. Having both of them running in one after the other would’ve been nothing short of a nightmare for the batters. They had brought many great batters down on their knees through their speedy bouncers. Both also had the tremendous ability to bowl perfect Yorkers and knock the stumps out. Akhtar and Lee together would arguably be the most feared bowling pair ever in the history of cricket.
