Ambrose was wicketless in his initial spells. After that he produced a devastating spell of fast bowling  to wreck Australia by taking seven wickets for only one run. I remember, a couple of years ago Waqar Younis of Pakistan was interviewed by Mike Haysman, and when he was asked what he thinks about the current generation of fast bowlers, he replied he doesn’t find many who can take too many wickets in a single spell which was there earlier. Yes that is correct. I also feel that is sporadical now.
