Hmm. Probably Saqlain but not too much in this. Swann was an absolute beast in his prime - which was a lengthy prime (circa 2008-2012).
Saqlain undoubtedly had more tricks up his sleeve to deceive batsman in unfamiliar conditions, but Swann had a bloody good stock ball and was relentless with it too

Well, Swann's T20I and T20 record is incredible. Just factoring Tests and ODIs, Saqlain - very close though. My vote is for Test and ODIs only.

Didn't think Swann would be ahead in top ranking and rating in tests, let alone by so much.

Then go and check Waqar's peak ICC ODI ratings .
Wow. He has 13 fivers in ODIs yet such poor peak rating. Although I have observed peak ratings for bowlers in ODIs tend to be generally lower. Just 5 ODI bowlers that ever crossed 900.

But he didn't even touch 800 ratings point. I was extremely surprised when I saw that.
And Maninder Singh (😂) having same peak ratings as Akram.
