9. Waqar Younis (Pakistan 1989-2003)
According to cricinfo.com: “The man who really put the reverse into swing. Waqar Younis bucked the 1980s trend of pitching fast and short by pitching fast and full. Not an obvious recipe for success until you factor in prodigious late inswing, which was designed to smash into the base of leg stump or the batsman’s toes.” Waqar Younis has th best strike rate of any bowler who took over 200 wickets in test matches. waqar took almost 800 international wickets with an average of under 24 per wicket in both formats. he has the world record of most five wickets hauls in one day cricket. probably was the one of Best Fast Bowler of all time.
