    Akram marginally the better bowler, Pollock undeniably the better batsman. Easily Pollock for mine, not very much seperates their bowling at all.

    Wasim Akrams all round match winning performance in the 92 world cup final should count for a lot by itself.

    For sheer brilliance Akram, but overall went Pollock, hard to go past that all-round record

    Pollock Easily

    Bowling - Wasim > Pollock
    Batting - Pollock > Wasim
    Fielding - Pollock > Wasim
    Captaincy - Pollock = Wasim

    On a given day to bat and bowl for my life, Akram.

    To perform consistently as an allrounder, Pollock.

    Good question. It's funny I would have Akram in my all-time ODI XI and not Pollock. But as an overall package I rate Pollock over Akram.

    polly's odi batting was good but not something that would be absolutley vital for a team's cause.

    will be biased and say Wasim.

    My world ODI XI would have McGrath, Wasim and Pollock as fast bowlers, backed up by Kallis to bowl seam. So both would fit in.

    Wasim. He was a much bigger matchwinner than Pollock. Just ran through sides on his day.

    Yeah. Pollock wins because of his batting superiority.
