    Abdul Razzaq

    I believe that Razzaq is going to become the all time ODI wicket taker. He is only 26 and has a good ratio of Games/Wickets, do you agree?

    Hard to believe his still only twenty six, his seemingly been around Donkey’s years. Though I don’t think he will match Wasim and get five hundred wickets but he definitely end his career as one of the best ODI all-rounders.

    No, no, no, no.

    Wasim Akram has 502 wickets. Razzaq has 236 in 217 games. To get to 503 at that rate, he'll need to play 463 ODIs. That's another 246, which will take at least ten years, not mentioning injuries and the fact that his last 100 wickets have taken 119 games...

    1.0875576036866359447004608294931 is the number of wickets Razzaq averages a match

    1.410112359550561797752808988764 is the number of wickets Akram averages a match

    With the growing number of ODIs played nower days, Razzag has about 8 bowling years left in him. Say they play 35 - 40 Odis a year for 8 years thats 302 wickets, add that to his current tally and thats more than Wasim

    In 2004 Pakistan played 27 ODIs. In 2005 they played 22. In 2006 so far they've played 17.

    The notion is ridiculous.

    Who says he isn't going to increase on his wickets per match ratio?

    Since it was such an apparently foolish question, who will become the leading ODI wicket taker after Wasim?

    Why don't you think so. Warne has proved that age doesn't matter, and Razzaq isn't going to get much slower in the next few years.

    Razzaq is a good player, however he is not a great or a champion player and average players don't break records like that.

    he ia good alrounder infect a great one. several time he has win matches for pakistani team with both bowling and batting. he is going to end up one of greatest one day allrounders. i don't think he is going to get over 500 wickets and the reason is his bawling is going down hill. in his fist years he was such a wonderful baller now i think he puts more attention in his batting than his bowling.

    agree with Xuhaib but since he is out of the team murli could do it.
