    Ambrose vs. Lillee in Tests. Who was better?

    Let's have a fast bowler's poll. So few of them around these days.

    Seriously, who was better in your opinion, and who would you rather have in your team?

    Both great bowlers, I watched them both live and on the tele, I think Ambrose had the better yorker and Lillee the better away swinger, still I would be happy to take both. But as Lillee was my boyhood hero I will take FOT
    You know it makes sense.

    I've gone for Ambrose simply because I saw a decent amout of his carear and he's the best fast bowler I've seen in the time I've been watching cricket narrowly edging out McGrath. All I've seen of Lillee are the specials on ABC/Nine of him demolishing England with Thommo and listening to former players sing his praises.
    Would be interesting to hear the opinions of someone who saw the majority of both their carears.

    Why is it a multiple choice poll?

    Hard choice for this l'il ole Aussie to make (LOL)...Lillee of couse.Having said that Curtly could bowl a seriously brute of a yorker seemingly on demand. Lillee was a much fiercer competitor though and seemed to have a bigger heart for the state of the game.Would never know the meaning of the word "Quit" no matter what state the game was in. That makes him not only a better bowler but a better player.
