Warne isn't even Australia's best bowler ever. Mind boggling that he's leading. Heck he might not even be the best leg-spinner Australia's ever had.
With fear of being called a heretic, I'd almost go as far to say that Miller would be more valuable than Bradman in the context of most teams.
Obviously Bradman's achievements are more impressive in not only their difficulty but in the fact that no-one came close to matching them. He was completely unparalleled in his art and he has rightfully been crowned the greatest ever cricketer based on this. However, in terms of shere value to a team, I'd probably rather have someone who was a world class batsman and an all-time great bowler than someone who is going to score absolutely freakish amounts of runs.
Hence, I'm pretty surprised that Miller isn't winning this poll.

Miller, marginally ahead of Warne for mine
Noting that the poll asked for 'best' rather than 'greatest' or 'most valuable' I went for McGrath just over Miller and Warne. If it had been the other questions, it would have been a toss up tween warne, miller and Lillee.

Not to me.
Very interesting to see no votes for Steve Waugh and ONLY 1 FOR LILLEE!!!! Incredible. And Greg Chappell was good, but not Australia 2nd best ever. Not by a long shot.

As for Grace and Hobbs being unquestionably the top two - well if you as John Woodcock he's got Alfred Mynn sandwiched in between them.
