    The not allowed to mention Glenn McGrath thread

    As every other thread is being hi-jacked and turned into a hero worshipping and slagging off fest of the slightly above average fast-medium trundler, we need a thread that doesn't mention Glenn McGrath at all.
    Simple rules, you must not mention Glenn McGrath in this thread.

    Hang on a minute, I've mentioned him twice already...............and in the title.
    Oh well, back to the drawing board.

    Some questions I'm struggling with:

    (1) Who is the most overated medium pacer ever?

    (2) What bowler should you criticise to wind up SS?

    Glenn McGrath doesn't compare to other all-time greats. He seriously lacks pace.
    He just gets lucky wickets by putting the ball in the corridor. Hell, even Munaf Patel can reach McGrath standards in a year or two.

    Come and get me, SS.

    I don't actually think Hadlee is overrated, but he wasn't really significantly quicker than McGrath. In the fast bowling competition he was clocked in the low 120s averaged over the 22 yards, so you'd think 130-135 out of the hand.

    People don't remember his lack of pace in the face of his amazing wicket taking ability though.

    Haha, love the Marshall one. I hate his action too actually, it's one of the major reasons I simply can't rate him as the best Windies quick. It's so harsh on the eyes.

    Congrats on the 5000th post! You've mostly made good posts...except when spouting neo-conservative views in OT or going overboard about McGrath in CC. Other than that, you've been gold.
