    Against the West Indies he averaged 24.20 with an economy of 3.56.

    While he wasn't one of the greatest strikers with the ball in history (though by no means terrible at it) he was by far one of the most measly bowlers in history. In ODI cricket that is extremely valuable.

    Amazing stat, that.

    Harry would be fuming though, he already will be after starring with 12* in 86 a.o. in a List A semi today.

    I totally agree with this! Pollock's ER of 3.70 = 70s and 80s 2.20...

    Actually when ERs are adjusted for the era, Pollock comes to second place.

    Here is the list. and note that Larsen appers at 10th.

    Code:
    Pos	Player			AER
    1	J Garner (WI)		3.55
    2	SM Pollock (SA)		3.59
    3	CEL Ambrose (WI)	3.62
    4	PS de Villiers (SA)	3.70
    5	Sir RJ Hadlee (NZ)	3.80
    6	M Muralitharan (SL)	3.83
    7	MA Holding (WI)		3.83
    8	GD McGrath (Aus)	3.85
    9	RGD Willis (Eng)	3.88
    10	GR Larsen (NZ)		3.89
