    Best left arm test seamer?

    I'm bored so I'm going to make a poll. Who is the best? Players listed in order of averages below and of course, they're on the poll. Feel free to bitch and yell if I've forgotten anybody, only provided they're any good.

    Ryan Sidebottom: 26.60
    James Franklin: 28.19
    Chaminda Vaas: 29.09
    Mitchell Johnson: 32.12
    Irfan Pathan: 32.26
    Zaheer Khan: 33.60
    Pedro Collins: 34.63
    RP Singh: 39.10

    I vote Vaas, as he's been the best over a decent time followed by Sidebottom then Franklin.

    In his current form, Sidebottom's the best by a distance IMO.

    Thats a fair call. I went for the more proven option though.

    Will be interested to see pasags reasoning for Zaheer Khan.

    Vaas by mile, the rest have done nothing over a long period. Even though Bracken doesn't play Tests. I would have him at 2nd overall as well.

    Vaas over career, but these threads usually mean "at htis point in time" in which case it's got to be Sidebottom.

    I voted for Franlin but really it's Vaas, followed by Sidebottom ver. 2 then the group of Johnson, Khan ver. 2, Franklin and Pathan trailing. RP Singh outclassed here.

    If you had to go on careers, Vaas is the winner.

    Currently in tests it's Sidebottom.

    In ODI's it's Bracken.

    James Franklin with the most potential IMO.

    Edit: didn't see you had put 'test' in the thread title, and pretty much ignored your initial post. Basically, ignore my Bracken statement.

    Think he's talking about current test players.

    Definitely. Wasim is the best left-armer ever IMO.

    So you would have Nathan Bracken who is a rubbish test seamer who doesn't play tests over left armers with good records based on outstanding ODI performances? Your loss.

    zaheer khan got my vote.. but in a few years RP singh would pass all of those to become one of the best..

    Vass is good but he is more like medium pacer.. not fast bowler.. any bowler who have the wicket keepers close to stump just turn me off..that is one of the reason Zaheer got my vote over vass
