    Overrated Bowlers

    Mirror kissing part time crap guitarist Brett Lee strikes me as the Mark Phillippoussis of cricket - four thousand kmph delivery, no results and a very spacious trophy cabinet.

    You forgot healthy bank account, pick of the ladies, and world travel paid for by CA.

    I bet you would love to be him if you were game to admit it.

    IMO Flintoff is the most overated overhyped cricketer of all time ...

    so suppose I would have to suggest his bowling as overated

    Scallywag,

    On the contrary - Lee and other try hards with would be extremely envious of MY own lofty position as Australia's Leading Social Commentator and Expert on Picking Up Chicks Who Have More than Three Teeth. And give me a break, Lee has no more a mortgage on "pick of the ladies" as does a ********, flatulent, failed pamphlet distributor with a bad haircut, sifting through the leftovers waddling their cellulite arses out of their plodding clubs on bingo night. And take off your coke bottle lenses - Lee is no oil painting - he's a befuddled looking bowlo ball-swinging tousled blonde balatron. But don't get me wrong, I think he fits into most Australian Test sides on that basis.

    Looks like I'm a pretty good social commentator aswell, I picked you as not being game to admit it.

    Never mind I'm sure you score well at bingo.

    Shoaib Aktar. He is very over rated. All talk, no action, plenty of injuries.

    Scallywag,

    Have you been drinking? You couldn't social commentate a race between a pair of number twos down a dunny bowl. Give it up.

    With people putting Brett Lee down so much i think he is no longer in the overated class, but the underated class. For me i think Pollock is slightly the most overated bowler. I think he had an ok series aganist England, but i that's probably cus he got to bowl to Flintoff, who can't play bowler of any class in test cricket.

    I dont think Pollock is overrated.
    True, he is declining but most pacers do,given the age of Shaun.

    I would say these are the overrated bowlers IMO:

    Brett Lee
    Mohammed Sami(he was supposed to be the next pak lightning)
    Harmison ( minnow basher but so far a flop against any quality batting attack he has played)
    Harbhajan - he is a class bowler but he really needs to fire outside IND if he is to be considered great......Kumble has started to fire in the last few years.

    There is alot of action when Akhtar plays cricket, even a blind man can notice that.

    Cant agree there. If he bowled the same vs SA as he did vs WI and NZ and got thumped then ok. But he is clearly not bowling the same lines and lengths this tour as he had the previous 18 months. So the quality of batting faced has nothing to do with his loss of form in this instance.

    He has bowled badly against a better team than the two mentioned though, whatever the excuse. Why isn't he bowling as well?
