The Myth of Shoaib Akhtar's Menace to India.
Shoaib Akhtar played seven tests against India (including the current one in Karachi). He got 8 wickets on the first one in Calcutta, including two stunning dismissals of Dravid and Tendulkar. And that was how the myth began. But he was never a major threat to India, contrary to what the myth suggests. He got only 8 wickets more in the five completed tests after that first one in Calcutta. Even in the current test match, when Indians struggled against the moving ball, he could get only two wickets.
