Going with Lillee over Wasim. Both ridiculously top class bowlers. Lillee's wpm is gigantic though, especially considering he was fighting some decent bowlers for wickets for much of his career. He also was amazing in the supertests. I don't care that he played three tests injured in the subcontinent and took basically no wickets. It's not important at all. The man inspired Hadlee FFS. Taking nothing away from Wasim, who could do anything with the ball, but Lillee was the archetypal fast bowler. Women wanted him and men wanted to be him. And nobody wanted to face him.

Have always thought of FST and DKL as being equals. Both have ridiculous WPM and had a similar style according to my understanding. Maybe Lillee was more of a tearaway before injury but both bowled outswing at high pace. Took the majority of their wickets in Aus and Eng too.
