    what Is the Best Spell of Reverse Swing Bowling that You have Ever Seen?

    think there will be many spells of pakistani bowlers coming in and deserving so...but mine goes to javagal srinath, in a test match against south africa in 1996...where S.A were chasing 170 to win in the last innings, and were 65 for 3 at one stage, there the ball started reversing for srinath...and south africa got all out for 105...

    here's the link...

    Shoaib Akhtar rolling out an ATG Aussie line-up for less than 120 on a dust bowl in Sharjah. Possibly number 1.

    Imran 1982-83 against India in Karachi. Getting 5 wickets in 25 balls. Cleaning up Sunny with a vicious in-dipper that came in miles.

    and some of the 2Ws
    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

    I never saw Davidson bowl so I'd shut up on that one.

    But, I'm not sure about your Bob Massie point, good sir. Have seen the Ashes 1972 video a few times and looks to me that Massie bowled conventional swing to get his 16 wickets.

    A lot of Waqar, Wasim spells and a few of McGrath are worthy of mention.

    But for sheer impact value, it's difficult to look past Imran's 8-60 in Karachi, 1982/83.

    I see that the good Samaritan Rob has already provided the video link, so I'll pass on this for your reading pleasure.

    Vaas getting 14 wickets against WI on a dead SSC featherbed. If Lara was given out correctly would have got about 18 wickets though.

    Best spell of reverse swing from a non-subcontinent bowler surely S. Jones in 05.

    Best of all obviously some Waqar haul though, too many to count really
    Batsman I tolerate: V. Richards, S. Tendulkar, E. Morgan, N. Hussain. KEVIN O F******* BRIEN

    That was an amazing match performance. From memory, I don't think it was specifically a display of reverse swing bowling though.

    Vaasy was very straight with the new ball and I'm pretty sure he accounted for quite a few wickets with his classical new-ball inducker to the right-handers that catches them on the crease.

    And IIRC, when the ball got older, he relied on brilliantly pitched cutters and varying the angle at the crease rather than out-and-out banana reverse swing. Very intelligent piece of bowling, but are you sure he actually reverse swung the ball enough in that match?



    Btw, would love to see that performance again. Vaas vs. Lara was epic. Do you have any video links?
