Crap. Lakshmipati Balaji is the authority on fast bowling. Has anyone interviewed him yet?

but it was an awesome interview
Completely agree. You should go into the game targeting the best batsmen in the other team and make it your job to get them out.
Of course, if they smash you for 6 consecutive fours in your first over then you might have to revise your game plan a bit. Waqar might have found it easier to intimidate at 90mph+.

haha....tbf Waqar himself was fairly expensive by the standards of his days......he did get a fair few spankings IIRC
Waqar was actually at my school long ago for a coaching clinic. Deadset, I was fifteen and still taller than him. When I asked him about how to bowl at the tail, he said 'Bowl at their bodies until they want you to get them out.' Legend.
Dean Jones was also there, and a massive **** to boot. Still edit his Wikipedia page from time to time.

RIP Fardin Qayyumi and Craig Walsh - true icons of CricketWeb.
Had some epic battles with Gooch, Stewart & Robin Smith up here on the 1992 tour. All strong on the cut and pull and not afraid to take on fast bowling; Waqar in his turn wasn't afraid to attack the stumps (and with his yorker, why wouldn't you?) and it made for some of the most compelling test cricket I ever saw.

"as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

Great run-up ..great bowler..one who took the pitch out of the equation with his ability to be bowl right near the toe..this might have made him tad expensive but also fetched him lots of wickets..remember him getting 5-6 5 wicket hauls in ODIs (90-91) which is unheard of..

How do you impose yourself? Bowl him against the head as fast as you can.....
you gotta bowl to them like courtney walsh and curtly ambrose used to...that was the era of the fast bowlers from pakistan to australia to the west indies
