WASIM - Waqar best bowling pair of all time. Former SA all-rounder Pollock says Pakistan pace legends could bowl well regardless of pitch and conditions.

South Africa's legendary former all-rounder Shaun Pollock on Friday named Pakistan's legendary pace duo of Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis as the most dangerous bowling partnership of all time.

The 46-year old said that the duo could bowl well regardless of the pitch and the conditions.

''All-time, as a pair it would be Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis. Their skills, no matter what the pitch was like, they could do it on any surface no matter what the conditions were like.

I would go for those two [as the most dangerous bowling pair],'' said Pollock in a YouTube interview.

Former Proteas all-rounder named Australia's fast bowler Mirchell Starc and Pat Cummins as the best bowling pair in the current landscape of cricket.

''Not so long ago I would have said Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander but I suppose I can't go down that route.

I hope if you have them operating at their best at any particular time Stuart Broad and James Anderson would be up there but if I had to go with two that are bowling as best as they can I would go with Pat Cummins and Mirchell Starc,'' he said.

Pollock featured in 108 tests, 303 One-day international [ODIs] and 12 Twenty20 Internationals [T20Is] while scoring 3781, 3519 and 86 runs respectively in each format.

The all-rounder also picked up a remarkable 421, 303 and 15 wickets in each format respectively, during his long and illustrious career.
