Wasim's most prominent experience in a Pakistani shirt came in Pakistan winning the Carlton and United Series in Australia against perhaps the two other most powerful sides in world cricket at the time, West Indies and hosts Australia. The series was low scoring and Wasim contributed significantly batting at number 6, in what is notoriously difficult place for Pakistani batsmen.
