    At his peak? Waqar. Overall, Donald.

    donald. was much more accurate than waqar without compromising on effectiveness. but as SS said, at his peak waqar was better than most fast bowlers in history, including donald.

    Waqar at his best was ferocious. A bonafide beast, but I'd rather have Donald. Just though.

    Yeah.

    Waqar was unbelievable at his best, but Donald had amazing durability and was so good for a much longer period of time.

    I meant Donald kept his performances at that great level for longer. Waqar had an amazing start, but tailed off in the later years of his career.

    I'd say Donald on the whole. Nice combination though.

    I went with Waqar, though there's so little in it I might have changed my mind tomorrow. Donald was able to sustain his exceptional performances for longer, though Waqar's sheer magnificence during the first half of the '90s swung it for me ever so slightly. They're so close in my mind that in the end it came down to a bit of personal preference as much as anything.

    I'd say Donald in ODI and Waqar in Testsm Donald is a bit under-rated in the forum but he really is good.

    From what I have read it wouldn't be out of line to say that Waqar at his best was the greatest bowler of all time.
    Direbirds FTW!
