I don't care if lists which focus on players one has watched wont be counted - as far as I am concerned, asking me to judge/compare people I have never watched play to those I have is ridiculous.

Sure he was.While Warne was being being pillored by Lara, Malik, Pietersen, Tendulkar and the rest of the Indians, McGrath never had any trouble conquering any of them. In terms of consistency, potency, ability to take top order wickets, ability to adapt to all conditions, and ability to knock the best in the business, McGrath was his superior.
Having said that, Marshall should be number one. By all accounts, he had everything a fast bowler could want, and a pretty much flawless record.
I did this very quickly so sorry if I have missed anyone of significance (spelling)
You know it makes sense.
Umm, probably already done one of these on this site, and this one will almost certainly be totally different to that one

This also tends to hide the fact that McGrath is more consistent and effective bowler with a better record in nearly all respects. Just not as flashy and appealling.
In no particular order

Imran won a World Cup and drew three consecutives series against the best side of his time (West Indies).
Wasim lost the World Cup final horribly and was easily beaten by the best side of his time (Australia).
Almost every Pakistani player whose played under both feel Imran was the best.
