Pakistan’s bowling inventions in Cricket

Sarfraz Nawaz Malik is a former Pakistani Test cricketer and politician who discovered reverse swing.

Commentators did not realise this was reverse swing at the time, though they realised that he had an uncanny ability to move the old ball in the air. He passed on his knowledge to Imran Khan, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis who made this new type of bowling famous in the late 1980s and 1990s
