    I would say Imran!

    Akram under performed after Imran's retirement deliberately, and as such i'm even more confident in naming Imran as the better pacer.

    Proof please.

    Richard, those stats are nothing short of incredible.
    Waqar pre-1995? Yes - as I said, it's something we've rarely if ever seen before.

    I'm for Waqar aswell but I'd take Wasim over Imran...Gee we were blessed in the 90's as far as paceman were concerned, having parings like Walsh n Ambrose...Wasim n Waqar..Donald n Pollock...todays seamers not really fit to shine their boots.

    purely as a bowler wasim tops it for me, but as an allround influence on the pakistan side has to be imran really.

    i cant say much about ten years from now, but currently young know alls (like me ) will agree that we were blessed in the 90s. longing for the days of wasim, donald & ambrose ... i didnt even see them enough in the early-mid 90s.

    ten years later ~ you might be right, who knows, one may say "forget wasim and waqar .. today we've got freddie & simon, lee & tait, munaf & vikram!"

    He just rates Lillee below the likes of Hadlee, Marshall, Mcgrath, Imran etc.

    No seamer can be regarded in the top echleon without success in the subcontinent, however good they were elsewhere, and it's utterly ludicrous that people take Lillee seriously in the "fast bowler's graveyard" nonsense when scores of high-quality seamers have had success there.

    i just had this talk with c_c....ah there is no point in talking to you guys....when you downgrade the career of a magnificent bowler based on 4 bad tests....and the list you put him in is so utterly ridiculous.....

    Whose choice was it to play so few Tests in the subcontinent? Lillee opted-out of countless tours of Pakistan and India, and he has to take the full blame for that.
    Being a good bowler in England, Australia and West Indies does not make you a great of the modern era. Success in the subcontinent is an unequivocal neccessity.
