    Greatest batting/bowling styles in the world.

    Love Malinga when he gets going. Kumble bowls a lot like andmark style-wise. Warne was great when he played. Loved it one time in the 2005 tour of Pakistan when Flintoff bowled with just one arm for one bowl. Flintoff although he isn't very technical still has a decent action. Enjoyed Trescothick's attention to detail. Also admire Hayden at his best and he starts basically bullying the ball. Gilchrist was brilliant style-wise as well.

    Is this question basically asking who you enjoy watching? Its interesting because I wouldn't say that Shoaib Akhtar has the 'best' bowling style in the world, but he'd be the one bowler I'd choose to watch over any when in full flight.

    I'm going to assume you're talking simply about action/technique, and hence:

    Spin: Warne and Sehwag (no idea why, but I reckon he's got a very attractive and simple bowling action, even if he is a part-timer)
    Pace: Waqar and Steyn
    Batting: Tendulkar and Sangakkara

    Excellent thread cdm. Was thinking that such a thread would be good when discussing a few batting styles with some one a couple of days back.

    Batting - Sangakarra, Tendulkar and Azharuddin
    Bowling - Warne

    I thought Donalds action was a thing of beauty. The way he steamed in and his tall elegant delivery was awesome.

    Batting: Vettori, always enjoy it when he strides out, especially in a run chase. No idea where the ball will go but you know he'll invent a new shot each time.

    Yes, it's about who has the best style/technique.
