    Who's the better bowler, Mk II?

    In open imitation of SJS' lively thread:

    Who was better: Imran Khan or Waqar Younis?

    This is actually a more interesting question, because there was a time, albeit a short one, when Waqar was quite conceivably a better bowler than anyone except Malcolm Marshall.

    Sadly for him, there was also a decidedly lengthy period of fair mediocrity, where searingly good games were sandwiched between 3 or 4 anodyne ones.

    Imran was good for far, far, far longer, if never as sensationally marvellous as Waqar was for his first 4 years.

    At Waqar's peak, he was the best pacer of all time, bar none. But that peak, unfortunately, didn't last long enough for me to vote for him ahead of Imram.
    RIP Craigos

    Im going to abstain on this one.

    Waqar for a brief time was possibly the best quick I have seen. Someting that never crossed my mind watching Wasim.

    Obviously he declined from a great to a mere good bowler after his sensational start.

    To average under 20, with a strike rate of a wicket every 6 overs, a fifer every 2nd game and 5 and 1/2 wickets a Test is crazy good. However, around 30 Tests on it declined and his legacy has been a little tainted.

    For a period though it was like he was from another planet.

    Without watching Imran indepth at his peak it is hard for me to compare fairly with a pplayer like Waqar that I rate so highly.

    If we go by their entire careers, than Imran by far.
