Tours to England in 1992 and 1996 had confirmed Wasim and Waqar as the premier exponents of reverse swing and as the most devastating opening partnership in world cricket.
With batters hopping and stumps flying, he and Wasim Akram took reverse swing to a new level in the early 1990s with their toe-crushing yorkers.

According to Shaharyar Khan, reverse swing was invented by Salim Mir, who played for the Punjab Cricket Club in Lahore and taught it to his team-mate Sarfraz Nawaz. Sarfraz Nawaz introduced reverse swing into international cricket during the late 1970s, and passed their knowledge on to their team-mate Imran Khan ,  who in turn taught the duo of Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis .
Known as one of the finest pacers Pakistan has ever produced, Wasim could be seen in the video terrorising former Kiwi batsman Chris Harris with both conventional and reverse swing.
Like any successful and unhinged politician, cricketer Imran Khan can seamlessly usurp accolades for things that he often didn’t do himself, eg invent “reverse swing”, as it was his lesser known teammate Sarfaraz Nawaz who did so. Imran, who infamously confessed to using a bottle-top to illegally scruff the ball and thereby generate unplayable “reverse swing”, carried those invaluable lessons from his previous calling onto his new avatar as the Prime Minister.
Swing bowling can be categorized into two types, i.e. Conventional swing and Reverse swing. Conventional swing bowling involves the use of a newer ball whereas the older and more worn ball is useful for Reverse swing. The two primary forms of conventional swing bowling are Inswing and Outswing.
