  1. Considered fast-around 140-145kph.Imran was on average around 145kmp or 90m.p.h.Generally both not considered fast medium.Imran ofcourse quicker.
  2. This is my list in order of merit of the best fast-medium pace bowlers of all time 1.Glen Mcgrath-Record speaks for itself with supreme intelligence and ability to read opponents.noone equalled his control 2.Alec Bedser-More penetrative than anyone on seaming tops.Great strike rate for his time. 3.Fazal Mahmood -As lethal as anyone in his day who was responsible for Pakistan winning their first test in England at the Oval in 1954.Control in the Ray Lindwall class.In the mpdern era may well have bagged 500 scalps.
  3. Today on February 7thH we commemorate the 40th anniversary of Gundappa Vishwanath’s epic 114 at Melbourne in 1981. This knock virtually took India out of the doldrums or despair to effect one f cricket’s great turnarounds to win a test and draw a rubber on Australian soil for the first time. The memories of his strokes on this day are always embedded in my memories .His late cutting of a Dennis Lillee Yorker to the fence was touch art at its most majestic plane.Vishy was the architect of a miraculous Indian win .Ironically Vishy was on the verge of being dropped, after undergoing a loss of f
  4. Thanks a lot corrected.Where would you rank the all-time South African team?best ever?Do kindly give vote.
  5. When I look through history South Africa nurtured some of the most outstanding talent ever created on a cricket field.In junctures it was arguably the best test team in the world.I am here selecting an all-time South African XI and comparing it with the best of all-time XI's. Barry Richards Graeme Smith (C) Hashim Amla Graeme Pollock Jacques Kallis AB Devilliers (W) Mike Procter Shaun Pollock Dale Steyn Alan Donald Hugh Tayfield Notable no all-time test XI has so many great all rounders.Kallis was li
  6. Do place your vote thanks for comment.What about Sehwag?Or Sandeep Patil?Remember Parul at his best?
  7. Drew with Australia in Australia and not very far from winning and morally drew with West Indies in the Carribean.Bad umpiring decisions robbed them of famous win in the 1st test.Batsmen like Javed,Majid,Raja,Asif Iqbal,Zaheer,Muhtaq made it a gerat side.How many teams have ever played as well against top West Indies or Australian teams?India may have drawn a rubber down under in 1980-81 but morally was beaten,with a mere escape at Melbourne.
  8. It had won the Ashes in previous summer which shows its talent.
  9. Is not overseas performance true criteria_Pakistan came close to beating powerful West Indies and Australian team sin 1976-77 .almost drawing 2 rubbers.India beat Australia but has never won in South Africa or for log in England.Even lost in New Zealand where Pakistan earlier triumphed many a time.Pakistan has much better record in England.
  10. Were there achievements not phenomenal drawing in West Indies in 1988-1st team to do so since 1974.Also beating England in England and India in India.
  11. Remember England in 1987 had just won an Ashes series down under and was almost twice as good as in 1986 with players like Chris Broad in their ranks and Mike Gatting as skipper.
