    I included everyone on the 350 and 400 lists.

    I think because this is based on matches, the likes of Hadlee and Murali who carried their respective attacks look better on paper. Unfortunately I didn't have the informaion to be able to do it on balls bowled.

    Well on this basis I was surprised to see Waqar so high. He's on 6 of the lists. So are Warne and Hadlee. Greats like Marshall, Botham and Lillee are on 5 lists.

    I think spinners who appear here have done well. Traditionally they are less likely to average over 4 wickets per match, but the likes of Warne and Murali represent a new generation of spinners who are used as strike bowlers.

    ODI list to follow.
    My house is burned down but I can see the sky.

    I included everyone on the 250 list.

    As with the batting the ODI list is dominated by current players, but to appear in both lists requires real class. This includes the likes of Lillee, Ambrose, Donald, Murali, Waqar and Wasim, Warne and McGrath.

    One question from this - why is Saqlain not in the Pakistan side. OK they're rebuilding but he's still young. They should be building around players like him, Youhana, Younis Khan, etc.

    Surely no other nation would leave out possibly the most successful and consistent ODI bowler in history, not to mention a pretty decent test match spinner (with a century to boot!)? Pakistan certainly can't be accused of having a Surrey bias!! :P :P

    They can.

    It is utterly stupid that Azhar and Saqlain are allowed to skip the Bangladesh series to play for Surrey, yet they've asked Shoaib back from Durham.

    If Shoaib stayed, I reckon he had a chance of pushing Durham to promotion.

    I don't care where it is, or who they're playing, international cricket is more important then domestic. If these ****'s are going to be so stubborn, I think they should be issued with a punishment. I wouldn't be entirely against a dropping for the next series. Obviously they've shown they don't want to play international cricket, so lets not let them.

    Saqlain hasn't been picked since the World Cup though has he? And Azhar only got back in while Pakistan were in England (as is my take).

    But Saqlain isn't actually that old..he's 25 or 26 isn't he?
    Its incredible that a country could leave out such a class spinner, but hey we're talking about Pakistan so I guess there's nothing new.

    But both announced they didn't want to be considered for selection.

    Durham asked for permission to remove his name from selection for the series and got it, hence they signed him up.
