[Warne is] the greatest bowler of all time - Glenn McGrath
In my opinion Shane Warne is the greatest cricketer who's ever lived - Ian Botham
Warne is the greatest cricketer to pick up a ball ever.
And is the greatest bowler I have ever laid eyes on. - Brian Lara
In ODIs, it's a very interesting question. Jones's contribution goes beyond mere statistics. He revolutionised ODIs with his quick scoring at the top of the order and his frantic running between wickets (not to mention being the first man to wear sunnies while playing). He was, in many ways, a trailblazer, and therefore always to my mind sits rather high in terms of all-time ODI rankings.
This poll should have an option for who to vote for in the obnoxiousness stakes as well as the options quoted.
Echo most everyone else - in ODIs it's close IMO, but in tests Ponting would be streets ahead.

Im never quite happy about listing people in order or direct comparisons unless it is obvious.
In Test cricket Jones was a very good player, but in ODI cricket Jones was incredible.
Whether he was better than Ponting? I dont know. All I can say is that he was one of the best Ive watched.
