Deadly late in-swing
Imran Khan. When I sat there watching him bowl, I was myself playing active cricket and as is normal one invariably imagined oneself at the crease wondering how the hell one would deal with this live hell. I do not recall feeling anything but a sense of complete helplessness as the Indians faced ball after ball of what appeared like completely unplayable stuff from this master bowler. Even the great Gavaskar was in deep trouble and only Amarnath of all Indian batsmen seemed unperturbed and not made to look like a novice

Swinging Yorkers delivered at great pace
A little bit more obscure, but can we think of the off spinner who had the best arm ball? Dan Vettori and Herath take the cake for me.
I think this is what you are talking of SJS

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
One that straightens
Bowl a series of in-swingers and then one that straightens from a wide angle -- Got Walsh lot of wickets..he was a master at it or do you just bowl one straight?
Speaking of Imran, here is what Jemima his ex-wife tweeted
Old army bloke to me, "I was a great admirer of your father's" Me- gracious smile. "...when he used to walk to the crease..." Me- air punch
I am often asked who was the best, fastest or toughest bowler I ever faced and I quite enjoy giving different answers every time. Well, it keeps me amused anyway –but the underlying point is that one could revise this whole list on a daily basis and never really be right and never really be wrong - DAVID GOWER
Floater ( one of the original earlier version of doosra)..Batsman thinks he is there but he isn't.. Prasanna supposed to be a master of it..
