    Fast bowler survival round 1 - please vote

    The Rules

    For round one, you simply have to rank the bowlers in each group in order, with 1 being the best bowler and 5 or 6 being the worst (based on the number of bowlers).

    Please only rank the players on their bowling ability.

    I will run two groups per day for round 1. The list of bowlers included in this game are:

    Group A

    Sydney Barnes - http://www.cricinfo.com/england/cont...ayer/8996.html

    Shaun Pollock - http://search.cricinfo.com/southafri...yer/46774.html
    Peter Pollock - http://search.cricinfo.com/southafri...yer/46770.html
    Alec Bedser - http://search.cricinfo.com/england/c...ayer/9057.html
    Fazal Mahmood - http://www.cricinfo.com/pakistan/con...yer/40092.html
    Bob Willis - http://www.cricinfo.com/england/cont...yer/22462.html

    Shoaib Akhtar - http://search.cricinfo.com/pakistan/...yer/42655.html
    Ian Bishop - http://search.cricinfo.com/westindie...yer/51226.html

    Wild cards:

    Kapil Dev - http://search.cricinfo.com/india/con...yer/30028.html
    Ian Botham - http://search.cricinfo.com/england/c...ayer/9163.html
    Dale Steyn - http://search.cricinfo.com/southafri...yer/47492.html
    Maurice Tate - http://search.cricinfo.com/england/c...yer/21462.html
    John Snow - http://www.cricinfo.com/england/cont...yer/20282.html
    Jack Gregory - http://www.cricinfo.com/australia/co...ayer/5435.html
    Jack Cowie - http://www.cricinfo.com/newzealand/c...yer/36616.html

    Wild card entries will be evenly distributed among the eight groups for this round.

    The bottom three players after 24 hours will be removed for groups that have six players and the bottom two players will be removed from groups that have five players.

    Any loser in round 1 or 2 will get a shot at earning a wildcard reentry for round 3.

    Groups are chosen randomly, except that the wildcards are spread evenly among the other groups.

    Group A:

    1. Ambrose
    2. Waqar
    3. Roberts
    4. Bond
    5. Reid
    6. Barnes

    Group B:

    1. Hadlee
    2. Lillee
    3. Lindwall
    4. Adcock
    5. Gillespie
    6. Nissar

    Group A is a nightmare to select from. For the record I rate Barnes highly. I placed him at the bottom of the rankings based on my opinion that I don't consider him a pace bowler. Almost impossible to compare the likes of Barnes to any other player on the list.

    Barnes

    Reid

    Group B

    Lillee
    Hadlee
    Lindwall
    Adcock
    Gillespie
    Nissar

    Tough choices in both groups. Although I rate Hadlee as the greater cricketer as a bowler I give it to Lillee.

    Group A

    Waqar - 1
    Ambrose - 2
    Roberts - 3
    SF Barnes - 4
    Bond - 5
    Reid - 6

    Group B

    Lillee - 1
    Hadlee - 2
    Lindwall - 3
    Nissar - 4
    Adcock - 5
    Gillespie - 6

    A is horrible. Might as well draw random numbers, impossible to rank.

    Roberts

    Agree that it is really hard to know where to put Barnes in all of this, but as he is included then I am just going to rate him as a bowler and not define it.

    Hadlee
    Lillee
    Lindwall
    Adcock
    Gillespie
    Nissar

    Could you please use first names aswell? I've never heard of Nisser or Adcock, so I can't research them.

    Group A

    Curtly Ambrose
    Waqar Younis
    Shane Bond
    Andy Roberts?
    SF Barnes
    Bruce Reid

    Group B

    Dennis Lillee
    Sir Richard Hadlee
    Jason Gillespie
    Ray Lindwall
    Neil Adcock?
    Mohammad Nassir?

    I have a feeling that group B will see Lillee, Hadlee and Lindwall all go through easily, but group A looks like it's going to be impossible to pick really.
