    Cricket Web Survivor - Week 1. Vote for the one to be kicked out.

    Here is the deal. The poll is designed to find out who has been the greatest Fast bowler of the last 20ish years.

    What you do is choose who you think should not be on this list. If you don't think P. Umpire should be there, then vote for him. Week 2 will be announced on October 19.

    The original list is as follows:
    R. Hadlee (NZ)
    Wasim Akram (PAK)
    C. Ambrose (WI)
    G. McGrath (AUS)
    M. Marshall (WI)
    W. Younis (PAK)
    DK. Lillee (AUS)
    A. Donald (SA)
    J. Garner (WI)
    M. Holding (WI)

    Let the worst player, lose.

    Yup I voted for Lillee, too much mouth and not as impressive as Hadlee!

    Its about time we realised that its part and parcel for fast aggressive bowlers to be in your face, thats the way these guyz play their game and its perfectly acceptable. He was a great bowler, a model for his time...............

    ofocurse its ur own opinion, but its a bit off the edge calling him a mouth, outright unfair.

    I was talking more about what he recently said about the English pace attack, but also I just rate Hadlee more, better average and took more wickets too.

    Hadlee...more wickets, better average than Lillee...McGrath also has more wickets at a better average than Lillee...

    Also although this is not the main reason why I voted for Lillee...he couldn't keep his mouth shut about England's chances so this would be quite a good way of shutting him up

    Can't believe Big Bird is rated below some of the more recent ones!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Well, I am sure Lilee doesn't give a rat's whisker about that..... and so its better you save your non-cricketing bias and look at it from a cricketing perspective.

    As for Lilee's comments there.... I think he was spot on, although I would love it if England can make him eat his words.
