Gichrist was a thug with the beamers and the iron incident and was a complete ****. However, he wasnt the fastest of his day and despite him being nasty Id rather face him than Ambrose.

As Goughy has subsequently explained, I slightly misunderstood his 2nd list, but I was never suggesting that Gilchrist was better than Ambrose. Nor was I suggesting that Patterson, Clarke & Croft were amongst the four finest ever produced by WI.
hmm, colin croft seems like an ace bowler as well, at least from stats and old cricketer reports.
Among the post 90 crop, I thought Reon King had a lot of potential.
Edit: It is my opinion that several of them tried to be too Ambrose/Walsh-lite without trying to grow into their own as bowlers. This considerably hampered their natural style and abilities.
