Luck also made a big joke with this veteran, who spread his balls on Indian soil, and at the age of 23…
Haseeb Ehsan took 27 wickets in 12 Tests.
In the game of cricket, there is often talk of psychological edge and mental state of the batsman and bowler. Just like a batsman has a bad experience with a field, then for a bowler some other ground is included in his bad memories. But never any field or country instills so much fear in the mind of a player that he refuses to bat or bowl in that country. But it happened. And it was done by the cricketer who gave sleepless sleep to the batsmen with his performance in India. But when it came to bowling in England, a fear filled his mind. Let us tell you what is the name of that bowler and what is that fear.
Actually, Pakistan off-spinner Haseeb Ehsan was born today i.e. on 15 July 1939. Haseeb, who took 27 wickets in 12 Tests for Pakistan, had a great performance against India. However, his bowling action was always in doubt. This was the reason that out of fear, Haseeb never bowled in a Test match played on England soil. But the fear he felt in England proved to be true on Indian soil. When his ball was declared a no-ball for throwing in the Bombay Test in 1960-61. It is another matter that on this tour he gave the best performance of his career in the Madras Test. Then the Indian team had scored a mountain-like score of 539 runs, but Haseeb threw 19 maidens in the bowling of 84 overs and showed the path to the pavilion to six batsmen giving 202 runs.
Cricket career ended at the age of 23
He finally had to play his last Test at the age of just 23 due to a defect in the bowling action. On the tour of India in 1960-61, he played a total of nine matches for Pakistan including five Tests. In this, he took a total of 24 wickets at an average of 28.75. He took 15 wickets in test cricket against India. By the way, in the 12 Tests that Haseeb played in his career, a total of 27 wickets were recorded in his account. During this, the feat of taking five or more wickets in an innings was accomplished twice. In the 49 first-class matches that Haseeb played, he sent 142 batsmen to the pavilion. The best score in this was eight wickets for 23 runs. In first-class cricket, Haseeb took five or more wickets in an innings 13 times, and there were two occasions when he managed to achieve the feat of taking ten or more wickets in the match.
