  4. Sorry corrected error.Thanks Liked my choice and rankings?
  5. This is my list of the best ever single in spells by a fast bowler.I am considering only single or continuous spells and not the entire innings. 1.Curtly Ambrose 6 wickets at Trinidad v England in 1994 in 2nd innings .-Rattled the backbone of the English batting as though performing a demolition job on a wicket with uneven bounce and cracks.Batsman were clueless or perplexed to go back or forward.Instead of sailing towards a win England crashed to 26-8. reminding one of an airbase being bombed.Hostility and aggression resembling water at a boiling point,at a magnitude surpassed.Ne
  6. Vengsarar in 1986 yes.However overall 19887 Greenidge at top.Do check hi scores and impact

  8. Greatly appreciate analysis.Atleast you recognise Azhar for his positive points.No doubt flaws but we must uphold his contribution.
  9. Was he not a great batsman?Amongst the most stylish of all time?Also won India so many games as a batsman
  10. No batsman who played for India took elegance or grace to such divine proportions as Mohammad Azharuddin.He was the perfect manifestation of poetry in motion in Cricket.Azhar was not as technically sound as Rahul Dravid or Sachin Tendulkar ,as calculating as Virat Kohli or as destructive as Virendra Sehwag but for sheer artistry he surpassed them all. Few artists took the glory of the victimised Muslim community in sporting endeavour to such heights. No Indian batsman was more pleasing to the eye,resembling a lotus blooming.Azharuddin simply took batting artistry or wizardry to another dimensi
