    I've already said this in another thread but...

    Waqar could bowl out swingers when he was at the top of his peak, prior to his first back injury. After his injury he only really hit too form in the Oval test match in 1992.
    He took four top order wickets with the new ball in England's second innings.

    Prior to the Australasia cup in 1989 (where everyone got to see his reverse swing Yorkers for the first time), Waqar was mainly a fast Bowler that bowled away swingers. Tgis was the case during the 1988 tour of Australia.

    Everyone remembers Waqar for his reverse swing due to the 1992 series when he was just returning from injury and was no where near his peak until the fifth test match... the tabloids ran with the ball tampering story and it seems those born after 1990 have this impression that he only bowled well with tampered balls.

    Wasim could bowl both outswinging and inswinging yorkers at great accuracy even at reduced pace. Though Waqar's inswinging yorker was a unique weapon.

    Yep another nonsense simplistic view of things. Example of the Oval 1992 2nd innings - 4 top order wickets (Gooch, Atherton, Stewart, Gower) before the ball was reversing and he got wickets with the ball moving away from the right hander and in to gower.

    NZ 1993-94 - waqar only took 18 wickets in this series where he was carrying a niggle and the ball was hardly reversing all series in the lush nz outfield. Yes 18 wickets in 3 tests was considered a failure - that’s how destructive Waqar was at that time. Nowadays Bumrah gets 18 wickets in 4 tests and people are waxing lyrical about it!

    Of course Waqar wasn’t an artist like Akram - there’s no shame in that, no one was!

    Waqar. Close no one to him. Akhtar another good. Beautiful Yorkers both bowling their times.

    If he played today he would not be half the bowler he was in his time. He would be one of the most expensive bowlers going around.

    What Asif, a superior bowler, said about Waqar is very true.
    Lol, what a convicted and proven match fixer said who is disgraced is hardly a credible person to quote.

    Bumrah to Bairstow at the oval with 57 over old red dukes is the best yorker I have seen.
