Shoaib Akhtar uncovers VVS Laxman's deception

The third Test between Pakistan and India in 2004 was dogged by controversy. VVS Laxman had led a seemingly charmed life during his innings of 71 when ball after ball from Shoaib Akhtar beat him for pace, without ever once striking the stumps.

This picture depicts the moment when Shoaib Akhtar extended his follow-through, giving him a glimpse of VVS Laxman's stumps for the first time.



Laxman had been defending only two stumps without bails the entire time having pocketed the middle one on his arrival at the crease.

Shoaib Akhtar's rage is clear for all to see. He points at Laxman, correctly indicating that he suspects the batsman has done this himself.

Maybe it's the calming influence brought on by the presence of Celine Dion?
