Poor Permy.
that is what i wanted to ask him?
Indeed, I'm not sure if he was playing when Ponting scored a double century and Gilchrist a century in the same match, but I have some recollections of watching a little best of that Test as it was in Australia, but I wasn't very keen on paying too much attention. So I may have seen Wasim play, but didn't know who he was, or how good he was. Ignorance on my behalf, yes, but I would've been less than 12 years old and barely interested in cricket as nothing more than a fun game.

No we don't. Some may, but not certainly not everyone. I wouldn't even say it was a majority tbh.
And I know for me, "watching a video" of him would just mean seeing him take a few wickets on Youtube. But you only get to see where he takes wickets, not enough to make a judgement of him as a bowler.
Yeah, I have seen plenty of videos on Youtube of some very good players but I don't like saying I've watched them play, because I haven't really. Sure I've seen them hit a six or take a wicket, but haven't seen sufficient of them actually playing to say I have. If that makes sense :wacko:
