who other than a bonda bhosad will speak about srinath but not agarkar.

Q: Are you happy with the assessment of being labelled as the best fast bowler
in the world?

A: It's hard to come to terms with that. I just enjoy playing cricket, love
bowling fast
and that's what I do. If people regard me as the best in the world, then its up
to them. I
will look at myself a little bit differently. I look at guys like Allan Donald,
Akram, Curtly Ambrose, Courtney Walsh....guys like that... even Srinath. They
great bowlers. To be classed along with those guys is a big honour. It's a good

Q: Kapil Dev really worked it *** Indian pitches... what will be your advice
to any
fast bowler? You are such a proficient and skillful with the new and old ball
and in both
 forms of cricket.

A: I guess this is my fifth visit to India. My policy on cricket has been very
simple... no
matter where you play. If you have good accuracy, and you can bowl the ball
you want to bowl, every ball, things are going to happen. So you build up
pressure that
way. Just back yourself and work on where you want to put the ball at any time.

That's what I am going to try to do here. Just bowl top of the off stump, where
I want
to bowl a ball, then the chances of getting a wicket are increased. I was just
seeing the
highlights last night... when Srinath took nine wickets against Zimbabwe in the
 Delhi Test.

There has been great fast bowlers who have taken wickets...look at Kapil Dev..
at his record. They say India is a batsmen and spinners' place, but fast bowlers
 have taken wickets. And I am going to take a few in this series.
