Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Rashid Latif believes Mohammad Asif is the best new ball bowler the world has ever seen.

Asif took 106 wickets in 23 Tests at an average of 24.36, 46 wickets in 38 ODIs at an average of 33.13 and 13 wickets in 11 T20 Internationals at an average of 26.38.

However, the 37-year-old has not featured for Pakistan since being banned for five years for his involvement in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal.

He last played domestic cricket for the Water and Power Development Authority as he represented them in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy in November 2018.

“The world has not seen better new ball bowler than Mohammad Asif. That delivery to VVS Laxman at Karachi, that control, movement, accuracy to exploit the bat-pad gap. Not seen again, anywhere. Rahul and Laxman in picture,” Latif said on Twitter.
