List of international cricket five-wicket hauls by Imran Khan

Imran Khan , retired Pakistani cricketer , took 24 five-wicket hauls during his career in international cricket. In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a “five-for” or “fifer”) [1] refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings . This is regarded as a notable achievement, [2] and as of 2014 fewer than 45 bowlers have taken more than 15 five-wicket hauls at international level in their cricketing careers. [3] [4] [5] A right-arm fast bowler who performed his country between 1971 and 1992, Khan was described by the BBC as “one of the finest fast bowlers cricket has ever seen”, [6] while ESPNcricinfo declared him as “the greatest cricketer to emerge from Pakistan, and arguably the world’s second best allrounder after Garry Sobers “. [7] [8] [9] In 1983 He Was named as one of the Five Cricketers of the Year by the Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack , [10] and Was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in January 2009. [11] [12] [6] while ESPNcricinfo declared him “the greatest cricketer to emerge from Pakistan, and arguably the world’s second best allrounder after Garry Sobers “. [7] [8] [9] In 1983 He Was named as one of the Five Cricketers of the Year by the Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack , [10] and Was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in January 2009. [11] [12] [6] while ESPNcricinfo declared him “the greatest cricketer to emerge from Pakistan, and arguably the world’s second best allrounder after Garry Sobers “. [7] [8] [9] In 1983 He Was named as one of the Five Cricketers of the Year by the Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack , [10] and Was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in January 2009. [11] [12]

Khan made his Test debut in 1971 against England at Edgbaston Cricket Ground . [13] His first test five-wicket haul came in 1977 against Australia in a match at Melbourne Cricket Ground which Pakistan lost. [14] In the same year, he took his first pair of five-wicket hauls in a single match against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground . [15] By the end of his career, he had claimed five-wickets hauls in both innings of a match on three occasions. [15] [16] [17] His career-best figures for 58 runs against Sri Lanka at Gaddafi Stadium , in March 1982. [16] He took ten or more wickets in a match on six occasions. [18]

Having made His One Day International (ODI) debut in August 1974 [19] contre England at Trent Bridge, Nottingham , [20] Khan’s solitary ODI five-wicket haul cam in 1985 contre India in a match at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium Association qui Pakistan lost. [21] He took 6 wickets for 14 runs in the match, which was his best bowling career in ODI cricket. [21] By the time he retired from international cricket in 1992 after nearly 21 years, [19] Khan had taken 23 five-wicket hauls in Test cricket [4] and one in ODIs. [21] As of 2014, He is twelfth overall among all-time combined five-wicket haul takers, a position which he shares with Sydney Barnes , Kapil Devand Dennis Lillee . [Note 1] [3]
