    Thats a very tough one indeed. At their peak, I would go for Waqar and Wasim I think. But but its not cut in stone.

    I think Marshall/Ambrose, while perhaps not as together as long was an even better pair. Of course, having Walsh as first change, and Bishop in the team as well probably helped somewhat with their success.

    I was looking at Ambrose's stats again the other day and was, not quite surprised, but once again appreciative of just how good he was. 400 wickets at less than 21. An all-time great. Has there ever been a more fearsome sight loping in, and then glaring down (like a foot down) at a batsman. Steve Waugh must have been insane to pick a fight with him!

    Yea, I would go to Ambrose/Marshall, Ambrose/Walsh, and Waqar/Wasim. But I'd take that pair in their primes vs. any one thats bowling right now (including England).

    As other names are being added to the original question I'll go for Lillee and Thomson.

    Wasim-Waqar 90-95 the most lethal bowling pair ever.

    Wasim and Waquar for me.

    I didn't really get to see any of the pairs in action but from what i've heard and read, Wasim and Waquar were more devestating on their day than Ambrose and walsh.

    I would say the better pair of the two based on all four bowlers at their peak would be the Waqar and Wasim. But over their entire careers (in tests) I would give the edge to Walsh and Ambrose.
    Cause Slifer said so.........!!!!

    What about Blessing/Prosper?

    Of the choices given, I'd go with Wasim/Waqar. I like Ambrose a lot, but Walsh isn't my favorite.
    I bowl seam-ups and take the pace off the ball.

    Thats how I see it as well. Ambrose ahead of Wasim & Waqar, but those 2 ahead of Walsh. Ill take the 2&3 ranked over 1&4

    Wasim and Waqar, as Goughy said rather go for 2 and 3 then 1 and 4.

    i agree, i have always heard about how fantastic Waqar was post 96 & well Wasim was always superb. Together at their best based on what i've heard & read were probably the more lethal combination.
