Have just watched it.
Thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks.

Not only is is great to see such an enlightening discussion on reverse swing (and on Wasim & Waqar, of course) but also England cricketers admitting that it was called ball tampering then, cos they were just not good enough at it themselves. :-) Wasim & Waqar, having honed it to an art by then, were miles ahead of the others, who were still trying to figure out what was going on.

This is what I like about England cricketers. Alec Stewart, Atherton, Allan Lamb....

This isn't about pace per se.
It is specifically about reverse swing, and about Wasim/Waqar in particular (and the controversies of the 1992 Pakistan tour of England).

Comments from Mike Selvey, Athers, Alec Stewart, Micky Stewart, Derek Pringle, Robin Smith, Rameez Raja and some others.
