    People got to take the records of guys from the 70s and 80s with a grain of salt. It is to all intents a different game for bowlers today. Having a 3.** E/R when you played up until 85 doesn't equate to you being a brilliant bowler.

    Bracken is a def inclusion given his record: E/R < 4, average of 22, playing in the age of 20/20, boundary ropes, 20 overs of powerplays, and rocket bats. Plus he predominantly bowls when the field is in at the start or at the death. Have him second only to McGrath among Aussie ODI pacemen.

    Off the top of my head, in no particular order, my ten would be something like:
    McGrath
    Bracken
    Lee
    Bond
    Wasim
    Waqar
    Garner
    Hadlee
    Donald
    Pollock

    You missed Ambrose! I won't blame you since the list, as you admitted, was off the top of your head. I hope that was just a miss...Among others Vaas will be a strong contender. Not necessary that they must be in top 10, but if someone wants me to select 2 ODI bowlers from Vaas, Lee and Waqar I shall have a tough time, just that...

    Muralitharan over Hadlee and you have the Top 10 ODI bowlers of all time.

    Vaas, gun though he was, was probably not good enough to dislodge any of those ten.

    Ambrose and Holding are probably the two stiffest calls. On one hand I think "there's no way they're NOT top ten", and on the other I think "who comes out of the ten I nominated".

    Here's a hint, I said "no particular order" but Bracken wasn't the tenth person on that list.
