It has become somewhat of an attraction lately as international cricket has returned to Karachi after a long time with this ongoing Pak vs SL ODI series.

Shahid Afridi had a five-wicket haul against Australia in a Test match in 1998 which has earned him a place on the prestigious plank.

Meanwhile, the Sultan of Swing, has his name on both the boards for ODI and Tests match records.

Usman Shinwari became the seventh bowler to take an ODI five-wicket haul at the National Stadium Karachi.

Ramiz Raja also paid a visit to the NSK Honours Board! His name is there for scoring 113 runs against England in 1987 world cup match, which Pakistan won.
