    No 5th bowler.. tsk, tsk....

    Well Wasim feels Pakistani side might have a slight edge because Australia lacks a quality fifth bowler while Pakistan has the advantage of a youthful side.

    While Imran Khan won the '92 cup with luminaries like Javed Miandad and Abdul Qadir, Wasim will turn to the likes of rookies Abdur Razzaq, Wajahatullah Wasti, Azhar Mahmood and Shoaib Akhtar to supplement the experienced hands of Inzamam-ul-Haq, Moin Khan and Ijaz Ahmed.

    "Look who's brought us to the final," Wasim said.

    "I don't think the seniors have done a great deal in this tournament. Saeed [Anwar] came good in the last two matches, [but] it's been the younger players all the way," Wasim said.

    He has nurtured his young side into a combination envied by most as Pakistan continue to spring surprises harnessing young talent.

    All-rounder Razzaq, a son of a shopkeeper, has been the find of the tournament while Mahmood has rekindled his bowling form in the nick of time.

    If Wasim carries the team to victory tomorrow, in fact, even arriving at the final, is a pretty good indicator of his leadership capabilities.

    At 33 years of age to be able to manage, motivate, present and perform under extreme pressure, Akram has made a name for himself.

      As for wasim he is truly the best bowler in cricket history .. and sure a good captain .
