Wisden has included Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar’s bowling figures of 6-11 against New Zealand in their list of best Test spells of the 2000s.

The Pakistan pacer bowled the fiery spell during the first Test at Lahore in 2002. Pakistan went on to emphatically win the opening game of the two-match series by an innings and 324 runs.

Muttiah Muraltharan’s sensational spell that returned figures of 8-70 against England was at the top of the list.
