    I used to consider Vaas a mini Wasim. Slower and not as potent but a similar style.

    Apart from being left-armers who get considerable swing I don't see much similarity. Wasim was all about everything going quickly - dashed in, rushed action, incredibly fast arm. Vaas was - is - just about simplicity - everything in his action just looks like he was born to do it, looks like the easiest thing in the world to him.

    Nothing was similar with them IMO other than being left arm swing bowlers. Wasim was faster, unpredictable with major variatons. Vaas was more accurate, subtle variations, who preyed on technique and concentration of the batsmen. Wasim has refused to demonstrate the reverse swing to Vaas, but he mastered it himself, by novel techniques to get it reverse swinging at 75mph. The reverse swinging actions of Pakistanis and Sri Lankans differ distinctly. Only pacy ones like Malinga and Fernado adopt Pakistani technique of slinging the reverse swingers. Slower ones do it with the same high arm action that was inherited from Vaas. He is a real trend setter for SL fast bowling, and still I haven't seen anyone getting reverse swing at Vaas' pace up to now.

    Yes, Malik was originally a bowler who batted a bit. But after he realized the only way in on top of Saqi is to bat better and then he improved his batting.

    Mohammad Hafiz has always been a batsman who can bowl. I am not a great fan of his batting or bowling though. Always thought he was lacking quality.

    Yeah you're right. I thought they had similar actions, but a quick YouTube check reveals they're not alike at all.

    Caddick's similarity to Hadlee was often remarked on early in his career. There was a similar ultra-controlled quality to both actions.

    He claimed to have modelled his action on Lillee though, IIRC.

    And Hadlee had also used Lillee as a benchmark.

    Trevor Chappell and David Bryant - though Bryant probably arched his back a little more.

    Cork has a much more apt likeness, ITBT.
