And he probably would only have seen him play if Pakistan played against New Zealand, which may not have happened for a year or so.
    Well he must have seen plenty of footage of Wasim and has admitted he has watched him on "video" so he has seen him play really. It doesn't stop him commenting on other players pre-2000 he has probably never seen live

    Agree with that sentiment Fiery.Who of us have seen WG play yet we all still recognise he is the 2nd best of all time.

    No we don't. Some may, but not certainly not everyone. I wouldn't even say it was a majority tbh.
    And I know for me, "watching a video" of him would just mean seeing him take a few wickets on Youtube. But you only get to see where he takes wickets, not enough to make a judgement of him as a bowler.

    Indeed, I'm not sure if he was playing when Ponting scored a double century and Gilchrist a century in the same match, but I have some recollections of watching a little best of that Test as it was in Australia, but I wasn't very keen on paying too much attention. So I may have seen Wasim play, but didn't know who he was, or how good he was. Ignorance on my behalf, yes, but I would've been less than 12 years old and barely interested in cricket as nothing more than a fun game.

    Yeah, I have seen plenty of videos on Youtube of some very good players but I don't like saying I've watched them play, because I haven't really. Sure I've seen them hit a six or take a wicket, but haven't seen sufficient of them actually playing to say I have. If that makes sense
