    Best left arm seamer?

    So, let's have another poll and yet another discussion on "the best of X category".


    Basically, rate and discuss the left arm seamers. What they've done and how they may go in the future.

    In ODIs - Ian Bradshaw or Nathan Bracken.

    In Tests - Chaminda Vaas, likewise.

    So no vote for me.

    Chaminda Vass without a doubt. He's no Wasim Akram but he is one of the best bowlers in the world and a long way ahead of any other left armer since Akrams retirement.

    How on earth is Bradshaw a better bowler than Bracken let alone by a distance? they both have similar ERs with Bracken clearly a far superior wicket taker.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Forgot Bracken. Bracken has only been a side-member for a season-and-a-half though. And his ER has gone up in that time.

    Hate to vote against Chaminda, but he's not a young man anymore. Bracken has taken his bowling to another level in the last 12 months and would be playing test cricket for any other team in the world, even England with their current injury concerns.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    The thing is not everyone expects the conditions to be suitable for the batsmen. That is why we see a lot of youngsters not using the power plays to their advantage.

    You reckon lots of teams (South Africa...? ) would take a guy with a Test average in the 50s?

    Wrong thread?

    Can't see that that's a reply to anything said in this thread, less still the post above it.
