As Pakistan and England get ready for the first test of the high-profile Pak-Eng test series to be played at Abu Dhabi, I was curious to know how the famed Pakistani bowlers have fared in Test cricket. So here's the list of Pakistan's 10 most successful bowlers in Test cricket. Take a look!

Have you relished their bowling as much as I have?

Man what an absolutely

Man what an absolutely awesome line up of bowlers that is and was surprised to see Ajmal down at #9! What on earth happened to Kaneira? He was a solid leggie who just faded when he seemed to be on the crest of becoming something really big. Cannot believe Waquar and Akram played in the same team - imagine being an opening batter at that time? Would be interesting to see which opening batter did well against Pakistan at that time.

We need to desperately get some lessons from Pakistan on bowling - they keep comming up with sensational fast and spin bowlers.

Absolutely, jaw-dropping

Absolutely, jaw-dropping list. Ajmal is down at 9, but those who are up are by no means lesser bowlers. Feel bad for Kaneria. He was certainly the front line bowler for Pakistan in his heydays, but spot fixing ruined his career.

The two W's along with Imran were a nightmare for the opposition. After Imran, Aaqib joined the two W's and they were a really deadly bowling unit.

Stormy, you raised an interesting question; will do some research and see if I can create a video that provides an answer.

As far as bowling goes, Pakistan has always been a powerhouse, be it spin or fast bowling. Somehow they seem to have the secret to produce quality bowlers on a regular basis. Given the conditions in Pakistan its a miracle that they have managed to keep their edge. Certainly, there is a lot to learn from them.

P.S. - Though I have checked the box against the option, "E-mail me when someone replies," I never get e-mail notifications when members comment on my posts. So in the absence of any awareness about new comments, sometimes I am unable to reply for days. Would you be able to help me here?
