    Top 3 is perfect...But I won't keep a spin bowler among top 5 in Pakistan's all-time bowlers' list...Also, I shall probably keep Saqlain ahead of Qadir...

    And for comparison purposes, here is Mushy's



    Not a terrible record either, but considering Pakistan's pace bowling attack was essentially just Imran and Sarfaraz during most of Qasim;s career, those figures achieve significance.
    Actually, the stats you presented back up my argument. Aside from India and Pakistan, Qasim never took a five wicket haul in any other country, nor did he produce a match-winning performance outside the subcontinent. Compare that to Mushy, who has won matches, like I said, in Australia, New Zealand, England, and South Africa. Given that their overall records are matchable, I would always prefer a spinner who can spin you to victory outside of the spin-friendly tracks of India, Pakistan, rather than produce tidy performances.

    Best Pakistani bowler

    There should be change in list,
    You've forgotten Mushtaq Ahmad. And Saqlain should be at number 4. And where is Aqib Javed? He was obviously superior than Shoaib.

    superior than Shoaib in what? Can't be bowling I imagine.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'
