    Yeah I agree but Bond was ignored because he has not played in ages.

    McGrath easily, he gets most of the big wickets for Australia, a high proportion of Warne's victims are tailenders. McGrath has caused the very best like Lara and Tendulkar difficulties - Warne just gets hammered against them. Unlike Warne, McGrath hardly ever has a bad series and has a better record against 5 of the 8 teams both bowlers have played against.

    Those people that prefer Warne are simply following the typical ill educated media bandwagon, and their opinion has no sound basis in reality.

    Yes. Finally we get to debate between the Aussie greates, Warne and McGrath. Should be interesting to see who people choose.

    Australia - McGrath
    Bangladesh - Rafique
    England - Harmison
    India - Kumble
    New Zealand - Vettori (If Bond returns I'd choose him)
    Pakistan - Akhtar
    South Africa - Pollock
    Sri Lanka - Muralitharan
    West Indies - Bravo

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
