Pakistan has seen some of the greatest bowlers of all times that even international players seek inspiration from.

One of the pacers immensely inspired by acclaimed Pakistani bowlers is South African pacer Kagiso Rabada who has, in a recent interview with Cricket Australia, come forth revealing what a perfect fast bowler would comprise of and it definitely features Pakistan's formidable bowlers Imran Khan, Wahab Riaz and Waqar Younis.

For Rabada, the perfect bowler will have inswingers like Imran Khan. The cricket prodigy, who's now the Prime Minister of Pakistan, is famous for his inswing deliveries and is known to have outclassed even the greatest of batsmen using these. Imran used to slide in 1 in-swing in 6 deliveries in an over; but that is mainly to catch the batsman at the wrong foot and get an LBW.

Next, Rabada says , come bouncers, Wahab Riaz- style. Wahab Riaz came into national reckoning earlier than he might have reasonably expected because of his unmatchable pace and striking bouncers.

Waqar Younis' yorkers is next on Rabada's list. he named Younis as the bowler with perfect yorkers.

Rabada also mentioned that South African cricket stalwart Dale Steyn bowls the perfect out-swinger.
