    Who do you rate as the best part-time bowlers at the moment?

    At the moment, I feel Bell is underrated, tbh. A while ago Bevan wasn't the worst but due to his shoulder doesn't bowl anymore.

    Currently I think Gayle is the best, but I feel Jayasuriya back a few years ago was very good. Annoyingly good actually.

    Yeah agree on Gayle.

    Lehmann is always handy and Collingwood has bowled well in the current South Africa series.

    Vaughan underbowls himself alot and I hear KP is a pretty useful bowler but has yet to be called upon this series.

    Bell seemed quite handy from what i saw of him for warwickshire last year. Obviously no one told Vaughan who insists with Tres, who to be fair isn't the worst ever. Gayle though is good for me, though Kallis also has the good day occasionally.

    Well Gayle took a bit of a battering in the triangular with Pakistan and Australia (he does brilliantly well when I don't pick him in my fantasy side, so this time I did pick him and he was atrocious), so it depends on how much you go with recent form.

    That's what happens when you try to bowl right-arm off breaks with an injured right shoulder.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."

    He tends to bowl 10 a game, how is that a part-timer?

    If Nathan Astle's knees ever allow him to bowl regularly again I'll be gobsmacked.
    I never, ever understood why the hell he didn't bowl more, and more at the right times, in ODIs, though, myself. Nor why his Test-record is so average.
    Guess it can be difficult to fit Larsen, Harris and Astle into the right time all the time.

    Personally I don't feel Gayle is a part-timer at all, more a batting-all-rounder.
    Jayasuriya is still pretty reasonable if the ball is turning or "sticking" in the pitch, and he's not the worst death-bowler either, but I suppose he just about qualifies as part-time.
    Lehmann takes it for me, even though he's been horrible recently (bit like his batting).
    A few I feel are overrated: Vaughan (at least as far as ODIs are concerned), Russel Arnold, Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Tendulkar, McMillan (of the Craig variety), Symonds, Clarke.
    Collingwood has been surprisingly good in the ODI-series so far - second to Gough, and I'd never, ever have predicted that. Even so he hasn't been fantastic, but he's certainly a hell of a lot more accurate than he was last time I saw him.
    What I'd like to know is (if this is a perminent change - and we'll have to wait and see for that) what the hell took so long?

    I was quite flabbergasted when I heard he was still trying to bowl after what he did.
    Amazing, he just always seems to be injured or ill, Gayle.
