    Everything he did from 1989 to the early 90s was pretty goddam awesome. It was a pity he missed the 92 world cup because he would have lit the tournament up.

    A shame Oz fans never saw the best of him because of injury

    The closest we got was an ODI at the WACA very early in his career when he was absolutely frightening

    Read today that pre-injury, he had taken something like 190 wickets at 19 at a strike-rate that was something like 4 balls per wickets less than the next best - amazing stats

    And, unlike the 00s, it was also in a period when people could actually bat

    45 then is 55 now because pitches weren't runways, and openers couldn't thump down their front foot and stroke away to centuries.

    , so roughly a 20% difference?

    The aeroplanes weren't exactly state of the art either. I wouldn't bet on any of the typically early 90s batsmen doing now what Sehwag, Hayden and co have been.

    Go ahead and tell me it was tongue in cheek.

    More. Boycott would average 250 right now.

    In 1990 Lancashire scored 863 against Surrey at the Oval so I went to see the 1991 fixture to see a repeat. No chance - I'd seen Sylvester Clarke once or twice at the Oval and thought I'd never see anything so terrifying again but he was Waqar was just as awesome - we didn't have a prayer despite the much maligned Mike Watkinson batting really well in both innings - Wasim on the other hand was - well to put it politely - distinctly ordinary in comparison

    Did you happen to see Sylvester against Middlesex at the Oval in a semi-final of some comp (may have been B & H) in the 80s?

    Truly vicious stuff where he gave Gatting etc a horrible workover and the game was done inside a few overs

    Only saw Sylvers at the Oval the once after a few beers - he used to be on the telly quite a lot but my parents wouldn't let me drink at home so without any alcohol I just hid behind the chair whenever he was bowling - he was absolutely terrifying sight
