    It's a no brainer. Murali, Steyn, Mendis in order.

    Pretty much. I'd even say Murali has been the best bowler in the last 10 years... maybe except for McGrath.

    The major exciting prospects for me are Steyn, Ishant Sharma and Mendis.

    Yeah Murali for mine. I'd possibly say that Mendis might be more potent, but Murali being the better overall bowler.

    Murali no doubt. Mendis is a close second.

    Believe it or not, Stuart Clark isn't that bad either. I wouldn't have him at the very top of the pile, but he's garnered some undue discredit of late.

    Murali, as I've said once or twice recently, I wonder about him these days. To write him off in any way would be utter foolishness, but he's not looked any great crack to me whenever I've seen him since the 2006/07 season.

    Mendis of course has been sensational so far but has played 1 series.

    Flintoff I have high hopes for but he himself recently played his first 3 Tests in the last 2 years.

    In answer: there are pretty well no conclusively excellent bowlers at the current time.

    Ishant shouldn't be in top 5...In fact, it's debatable if he's yet become India's best pace bowler; I'm not saying he's not, but it can't be said without doubt who among Zaheer and him is better atm...

    For me the top 5 are Murali, Steyn, Mendis, Clark and Sidebottom.

    If we were picking a team schoolyard-style from everyone in the world, the first i'd pick would be Mendis. Although a lot of his threat comes from his x-factor, so purely as a bowler Murali's probably better.
