    I think the West Indian pace quartet at its peak was but a mere shadow of the greatness that these guys put on. In fact, the only reason they are ever rubbish is on purpose, to give the other sides a chance to win, otherwise it would be futile and the game would be no fun .

    What are your comments on the blistering pace of Munaf Patel and Sreesanth?
    Surely, Pathan's loss of pace isn't a problem ... after all, McGrath bowls at the same pace.

    I think that if it wasn't for the white racist white devils controlling the speed gun technology, surely they would both be clocked at 120mph+ with their slower ball.

    If I put a penny on good length, Pathan can hit it 100 times out of 100, but each delivery would be different. He can bowl both inswinger, outwswinger and a reverse swinging ball in the same delivery - such is the legendary control and ability of the man.

    How about the fact that he has taken 600+ test wickets?

    Yea, there is not any new ground here. You either think he's a chucker (which has some merit) or you think he isn't (which also has some merit). So its bit of an impasse really.

    Although, and not pointing at anyone in particular, a lot of Murali hate from Aussies have come due to jealousy, which doesn't sit right with me. Because it puts the non aussies who also favor Warne over Murali in the same boat.

    Bill O'Reilly for me, and if we consider SF Barnes a spinner then put him in front as well
    You know it makes sense.
