People talk about his 6/23 versus England in World Cup 2003...but the defining bowling effort for me was him and Srinath bowling their hearts out at Trinidad in 2002... to bowl India to victory... I was glued to my computer in those long ago, pre-video streaming days, reading ball-by-ball commentary and sweating every ball as India in a rare display won a Test overseas due to FAST bowling.

That they promptly lost the next Test in Barbados was hugely disappointing... but it set the stage for other famous wins overseas due to FAST bowling such as Perth in 2008 and Durban 2010...

With India's new phalanx of pacers... hoping for more like these in the future
