    I dont even think it is close. Not even in the same bracket.

    Donald was an athlete, I would pay to watch him and I wanted to be like him. But McGrath was a different class.

    McGrath in the small handful included in the discussion for best ever. Donald a group or two behind.

    What makes you say that though? Until Donald's retirement I think most people would say they were even, if not even nudging towards Donald. Why is it not close?

    [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

    "Rassclat" is a derivative of "Bumpaclat" and "Pussyclat", both of which are Jamaican slang for menstral sanitary towels (Tampons and Pads). "Rassclat" can sometimes be shortened to "Rass".

    "Rassclat" can be used as an adjective to disparage an object, but it is most often used as a highly offensive insult against a person.

    Word. People may able to say McGrath is better because of his statistical success in most conditions. But damn at their respective peaks i've always felt you really can't separate McGrath/Wasim/Amrbose/Donald/Waqar.
