He went on to play 124 First Class matches for Lancashire and nine one day England internationals after making his debut in 1998 at the age of 32.
Austin explained: 'When I bowled to him I wanted a man in front of square and early on he flicked one and it went just where I wanted the man. Later I had a man exactly where I wanted and he hit it straight to Graham Lloyd. While he was still there they had a chance but from there on it was our game for the taking and we ended up winning by 20 to 30 runs.'
'I was under no pressure to do anything. Nobody was looking at me as the main man. I just sort of sneaked into the side under the cloud of everybody else being the big name and I found a niche in the team.'
'He was very open about it. I went in and sat down with him and he told me how it worked and it is a fine art.'
Austin was an unlikely candidate to become a cricket icon of his age but that is what he achieved with man of the match awards in two of six successful county one day finals in eight appearances.
The first one day success came in the 1990 Benson and Hedges final against Worcester at Lords.
He explained: 'I just bowled and bowled and never Nike Air Huarache New put any pressure on myself. There was Wasim, Phil De Freitas and Paul Allott, Mike Watkinson was the all rounder and Jack Simmons, who was a one day Nike Huarache Gold And White

God at bowling.'
Other honours include being named one of Wisden's five cricketers of the year in 1998.
'We won both the Benson and Hedges and the Nat West that year and were the first team to do that.'
He recalled: 'We played against Viv Richards against Glamorgan at Colwyn Bay and he was almost taking the p. He would hit the ball 10 yards one side of the fielder and then 10 yards the other when they moved. He gave the impression that he could do whatever he wanted with the ball.'
down for a game of golf and a drink.'
Austin explained: 'I saw Wasim day in and day out and dressed next to him for nine or 10 years and we got on very well and still do. I talked to him about various ways of bowling and reverse swing.'
Austin and Akram became firm friends during a decade in the Lancashire CCC dressing room and he rates the Pakistani as one of the best cricketers he has played with.
Austin takes great pride in the compliment.
But when 'Bully' was enjoying his finest hours for Lancashire CCC and England, most people would have looked at the silhouette and known immediately it was Ian Austin.
What he brought to the party was recognised by his former playing colleague Wasim Akram, who said Austin's blockhole delivery which denies the batsman much room was among the best of its kind in the world.
But he added: 'We had a dressing room full of class people like Neil Fairbrother, Michael Atherton and Gehan Mendis, who was the best player of fast bowling that I have ever seen.'
The all rounder recalled: 'It was a fantastic day. I remember that it was bowling very quickly. The atmosphere was unbelievable. To play at Lords has an aura but to play to a packed house was amazing.'
That was never a criticism that was thrown at Austin, who signed for Lancashire as a batsman that could bowl.
One of the most memorable games was against Kent when Lancashire batted first and got more than 250.

in your corner when the going got tough because Bully played tough and often got going.
He said: 'That is as good as it gets from someone of his stature. That is one of the highest honours, to be honest.'
'But David Hughes later told me that he would rely on me probably more than the others, apart from Wasim, when we were bowling at the death.'
Other batsmen that have impressed Austin were Viv Richards, Graham Gooch and David Gower.
'Graham Gooch never tired of scoring runs and Gower had so much talent but did not have the appetite for scoring runs. Some people can bat all day. Chris Tavare once played all day against us for 50 runs. His concentration was unbelievable and for his team it was a fantastic innings but for the people who were watching, it must have been like watching the grass growing.'
Lancashire repeated the feat in 1996 when Austin won the gold award for man of the match with 4 21 against Northants in the Benson and Hedges final and completed the one day double with a victory over Essex in the Nat West showpiece.
FEW people looking at a silhouette of Ian Austin in his prime would guess the shadow belonged to a professional cricketer.
He added: 'Was gave his all for Lancashire and loved it. He still has a flat down there and I speak to him regularly and if I get a chance I nip Huarache Black And White Womens
