    There are quite a few from Pakistan since we have over-relied on our bowling to bail us out in most circumstances.

    In my opinion the most destructive bowling spell would be Ajmal against England, Afridi vs Australia 1st ODI Dubai



    And Shoaib Akhtar against Australia in Sri Lanka, but the one that tops it is

    Ambrose against Australia 7/1 . Can anyone get better then that..

    Asif and Sami Sydney test to bowl Aus out for 127, Asif and Amir to bowl Aus out for 88 in England again, Asif vs India Karachi test, Shoaib Akhtar vs Aus 2002 test, Afridi vs India Banglore test 2005 test series to get rid of tendulkar, laxman and ganguly

    The thing that amazes me, that running through a lineup of Laxman, Ganguly and Tendulkar who were extremely good players of spin bowling, why did he not continue with Test Cricket. He merited a place in the side through his bowling alone in Test Cricket.

    Harmison against the Windies (Gayle, Sarwan, Chanderpaul) is right up there.

    Michael Holding's 14 wickets for 157 at the Oval in 1976 is the greatset ever bowling spell.There has never been a more sustained effort in the history of fast bowling.The pitch was as flat as a pancake and it was remarkable that all of Holding's victims wee bowled or l.b.w.Very close behind is Bob Wills's 8-43 at Headingley in 1981 against Australia to win a game for his team after Australia were chasing a mere 130 runs.

    Shoaib Akhtar is the most destructive bowler i have ever seen, probably his 6-11 v NZ, just steamrolled them with pretty much every delivery over 95mph
    Waqar caused plenty of collapses but still never seen anyone as destructive as Shoaib was capable of
