Wahab Riaz Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

Wahab Riaz One of the fastest spells I have seen in a long time\”, this is what Michael Clarke had to say during the post-match presentation on Wahab Riaz after his onslaught with the ball against Shane Watson in the quarter finals of the 2015 World Cup. Defending 213, Wahab forced Warner into a fatal upper cut and bounced Clarke into submission forcing his creaking back to arc back further. Watson though saw the brutality of a Pakistan fast bowler who exploded with bouncers hurled at 150 km/hr. This certainly was one of the highlights during the World Cup down under.

The big stage and owning it is no big deal for Wahab. During the 2011 World Cup, Riaz had scalped a fifer in the semi-finals against arch-rivals India to give Pakistan a more than sniffing chance for the finals. But a batting mishap, so common for Pakistan in big games, cost them the game. But Wahab was in the limelight. Pakistan had lost Amir and Asif a year earlier to fixing. But Wahab’s arrival showcased the Pakistani speedster coffers are replete with quality and quantity.

But the 2015 magnus opus over from Wahab to Watson made him a first choice selection in almost every format. There were murmurs of him being the next skipper as Misbah hung his boots post the World Cup. However, since then, one thing for sure was Wahab and a magic round the corner with the red or white ball hasn’t been looked upon as a surprise or shock. It is just a Wahab thing! Uninhibited, raw, quick and extremely harmful to the fate of a batsman.
