The one of the greatest fast bowler mysteries is the fact Holding gets more recognition than Garner, even though statistically Garner has a slight edge.
The only thing Holding had over Garner was petulance, deliberately bowling at batsmen's bodies and injuries.
Garner is the forgotten (perhaps slightly underrated) one. In my opinions, he is the ideal first change bowler in any XI, even an all time one...
Imagine seeing off the opening bowlers (Lillee, Marshall or whoever), then having to cope with Garner.
