    Greatest bowling combination ever

    Plenty to choose from e.g Mcgrath and Warne, Ambrose and Walsh, Waqar and Wasim, Trueman and Statham, the list goes on, anyone have any particular favourites?

    I can't look past Waqar and Wasim for sheer devastating potential. After them I'd slot the ying-yang of Walsh and Ambrose.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Bedi/Prasanna, Gough/Caddick and Pollock/Donald, still dont beat the duo of Wasim & Waqar. Lethal man.

    Has to be Warne and McGrath. The heart of the bowling lineup in the most successful team of all time, with almost 1000 test wickets between them in a decade of bowling side by side.

    Allan Donald and Shaun Pollock.. Possibly the best marriage of control and agression ever..

    Wasim and Waqar no question but Mcgrath and Warne best seamer/spinner by a country mile

    In terms of a test match warne and mcgrath are the perfect pair but wasim and waqar on their day could bowl bradman out for a duck.

    Presuming we're not restricted to just two bowlers (are we?), I don't think you can go past the late 70's/early 80's combination of Holding, Roberts, Garner and Croft.

    Technically duo's because there are quite a few famous pairings, more so than foursomes etc. Although your four aren't bad .

    Streak and Johnson.
    My personal favourite, Caddick-Cork aside, was Allott and Nash in WC99.
    Wasim and Waqar were surely one of the most devestating; Marshall and Holding must have been pretty close; but there are many who are for-all-intents-and-purposes equal.
    It mostly comes down to personal favourites - for le it might be Lock and Laker, Lindwall and Miller, Larwood and Voce, or even Lockwood and Rhodes... nah, actually, I can't be bothered with this "le is 140-years-old" jibing.

    Kyle Mills and Chris Martin.

    End of discussion.

    Unless we go back to Richard De Groen and Michael Owens.
