    Pollock, Bond (fitness dependant), Murali are three certainties I can think of.
    Possibilites are Flintoff, Kumble, Vettori, Gillespie....Im probably missing someone really obvious

    EDIT: Vaas of course

    Erm, why?

    Is it because of his nationality perchance?

    While Vettori's test form took a huge dive, he's always been very consistent in ODI's. It's very rare to see him being smashed around.

    Rating him higher than Murali is pushing it, but I do think he's one of the best ODI spinners going around.

    On recent form Vettori is the number one finger spinner, but Murali is a wrist spinner more then finger spinner. Vettori did out bowl Murali in the FICA/Black Cap Series but that was more down to the fact that Murali wasn't fit enough to really play. But when Murali comes back to full fittest then Vettori is a long way off ATM.

    The top five ODI bowler would be:
    McGarth
    Murali
    Vaas
    Gillespie
    Flintoff
    The man, the mountain, the Mathews. The greatest all rounder since Keith Miller. (Y)

    I love Vettori, but I dont see how an average of 35 shows his dominance. Hell, Darren Lehmann bowls just as well.

    I dont see how McGraths WAY in front. With an economy of 3.85 in a game where it counts, he is beatn by Shaun Pollock (3.74). Just because McGrath hammered New Zealand doesnt mean hes the best.
    USA Today finds that 3 out of 4 people make 75% of the population.

    Well when you consider than Lehmann also has McGrath, Gillespie, Lee & Kasprowicz along side him...it's a bit different to Vettori's scenario with NZ.

    Well if he is as good as people say he is then he would still be able to take wickets and reduce his average even if people block him out and go after the other bowlers.
