    I consider Akram to be the greatest ODI bowler ever.

    Hard to compare because until the early 80's ODI's werent played that much.
    Hadlee played less than 20 games from 1973-1980. Most players play that many in an 18 month period.

    From 1980 until his retirement Hadlee averaged 20.11 with an economy of 3.29.

    Wasim - Top 5 bowlers of alltime, IMO.

    Akram, possibly only McGrath is better than him as an ODI bowler
