    I chose Murali, and Barnes. But, if it was spinning conditions, then Warne would come into for either Barnes or McGrath. But, it's really hard to pick.

    And, I'm also wondering why Hadlee wasn't at least one of the options on this poll?

    Warne is a must and I would have put Murali if it weren't for my new-found respect for Sydney Barnes. A legend, and one of the few players I'd consider now for an All-Time team without batting an eye-lid, even though I hadn't seen him play. Add that I find it enough to have one spinner on the team.

    EDIT: what I meant to say about Barnes is that usually regarding players I haven't seen I am usually weary about putting them in, but Barnes not so much.

    he, along with lillee and ambrose and so many other greats, lost out to marshall and mcgrath when we picked our post world war II team.

    i am not sure what i am going to do for the last two bowling slots. i have changed the choices in my mind too many times since we started this process sometime last year.

    i think i will go for warne and barnes. but will wait for another day to vote.

    I went Barnes and Warney, but geez it hardly matters - much like the poll for the middle order batsmen, you're going to have an absolute legend bowling for you whoever gets up.

    It's as if I've given my mates a list of Scarlet Johannson, Angeline Jolie, Jessica Alba, Monica Belucci and Claudia Schiffer and told them to vote for which one I get to sleep with tonight.

    Went with Barnes and Warne. I consider Murali to be an over-all better bowler than Barnes, however, I prefer my team to have one spinner.
