WATCH: On This Day in 2008 - Shoaib Akhtar wreaks havoc vs Delhi

Remember that iconic night at Eden Gardens in 2008, when Shoaib Akhtar announced himself in the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League with a signature fiery spell of fast bowling that crushed Delhi Daredevils in a 134-run chase?

Here's the video, for you to relive on e of the most cherished memories in Kolkata Knight Riders' history of the tournament.

Akhtar's figures of 4 for 11 in three overs, which included the wickets of Delhi's top four batsmen - Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, AB De Villiers and Manoj Tiwary - rattled the visiting team, who were eventually bundled for 110 runs in the 18th over.
