Muhamamd Asif is one of the best swing bowlers the game of cricket has ever seen. The Pakistani right arm pacer had caused great troubles to the likes of AB de Villiers, Kevin Pietersen and many other batting greats back in the day.

A number of these batting maestros have always spoken highly of Muhammad Asif. When South African cricket great, Hashim Amla, was asked about the toughest bowler he ever faced, he named Muhamamd Asif.

The former cricketer also called the Pakistani bowler a magician with ball.

“Mohammad Asif caused me the most trouble. He was a magician with the ball. He was a beautiful bowler to watch, but not so good to face,” Amla told Mark Nicholas.

Amla also explained how difficult it was to face Asif.

“He was the toughest to face. I’d set myself up for an inswinger and he’d beat me on the outside edge. I’d prepare for an outswinger, and he would beat my inside edge and clip the bails, bowling me out,” Amla added.
