Wasim Akram was the greatest left arm fast bowler of all time. Steve Waugh was a very good batsman with an excellent captaincy record. But he is not 'Hall of Fame' material by a long shot. But looking at the other people who have been inducted, he deserves a place.

HA Ha Ha, either you were blind or u have no cricket sense. ask anybody who saw that particular match. at least 4/5 of wrong decisions were given by the umpire (possibly jayaprakash). for example The ball missed the bat by 6 inches in daylight, but it was given ct behind. At least you know now that after that match no more host umpires are allowed in tests

"I have not even heard of some of the names mentioned" Reason: when these player used to play on the field, u were not exist in the world. e.g. Victor Thomas Trumper (Born: 2 November 1877 – Died: 28 June 1915)
People like him born in centuries. The artistry, the class, the professionalism is worth acknowledgement of highest standings. I laud his service to the Pakistani nation and to the world cricket. Best of luck Wasim
