Lefties have been quite rare when it comes to speed. For Aust. Bruce Reid was cut down by injuries, but Alan Davidson was a fine bowler, though a little below the pace of Wasim from what I have read.magsi23 said:I think so

186 wickets @ 20.53 in 44 tests. Also averaged almost 25 with the bat.
If Davidson isn't as good as Wasim, he's very close indeed. He didn't have Wasim's pace, but he was a metronome in the style of Bedser and McGrath, and a great swing bowler, possibly the greatest of his era.
Wasim Akram is the Best Left Arm Fast Bowler Ever & master of reverse swing but its legendary Sarfaraz Nawaz who was the the pioneer of reverse swing,not anyone amongst Wasim,Waqar & Imran.howardj said:He could do absolutely anything with the ball too.
He also has a big test double century, the only one at number 8 in the order !!howardj said:Speaking of batting, I think Akram only ended up with an average of 20-25, which belies his talent. One of the first games I ever watched on TV was where he smashed a brutal century at the Adelaide Oval, in a Test Match against Australia. He punted some poor Aussie quick back over his head for six, which is nothing to be sneezed at on the Adelaide Oval.
Yes thats right.nightprowler10 said:Like Imran Khan did when he injured his shoulder.
