    Gone with Garner, McGrath and Akram.

    Garner I consider the greatest ODI bowler of all time. McGrath simply awesome for such a long period of time. The last choice for me was between Akram and Donald. Hard to split the two considering how destructive both could be, picked Akram based on extra batting ability.

    went for garner, wasaim and hadlee; three of the most accurate attacking fast bowlers ever; two of them could hit the ball a long way too.

    Went for Garner, Wasim and Waqar. I'd give the new ball to the first two as I believe they'd keep it tighter and then bring Waqar on from the 30th over onwards to destroy teams with reverse swing.

    Went for Garner, McGrath and Pollock. Feel so dirty not voting for Wasim, but I couldn't live with myself if I didn't go for McGrath, and Pollock's so underrated as an ODI player IMO.

    McGrath and Akram are a given IMO, dunno about the third though.
    I think there'll sooner be another Bradman than another Warne. - Gidgeon Haigh

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler ever produced in this entire world - Muttiah Muralidaran

    [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

    Hadlee, Polllock and Waqar

    Hadlee and Pollock to strangle and Waqar to blow you away when you swing at him in frustration. Just think it makes a nice combination personally. Plenty of excellent options.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Went for McGrath, Akram and Lee. Wanted a mixture of accuracy and pace, and to have a lefty. Lee's incredible SR gets him in imo since I think taking wickets is critical (went for Lee over Bond for fitness), and Akram's batting also handy.
