    Fast bowler survival round 3

    So we have progressed into the final group stage.

    I have seeded the results, based on the previous group stages. The final 20 competitors are ranked like so:

    1.13 - Malcolm Marshall
    1.19 - Glenn McGrath
    1.34 - Richard Hadlee
    1.46 - Imran Khan
    1.72 - Dennis Lillee
    1.74 - Curtly Ambrose
    1.83 - Joel Garner
    2.02 - Waqar Younis
    2.03 - Fred Trueman
    2.07 - Wasim Akram
    2.13 - Allan Davidson
    2.21 - Sydney Barnes
    2.29 - Michael Holding
    2.41 - Allan Donald
    2.57 - Ray Lindwall
    2.82 - Harold Larwood
    2.86 - Shaun Pollock
    3.15 - Frank Tyson
    3.33 - Keith Miller
    3.75 - Andy Roberts

    The groups have been allocated as fairly as possible.

    Please rank the bowlers in each group. There will be 48 hours to vote. The bottom placed bowler in each group will be eliminated and the average vote that each player scores in this round will seed them for the quarter finals.

    Group A

    Malcolm Marshall
    Dennis Lillee
    Sydney Barnes
    Harold Larwood
    Andy Roberts


    Group B

    Glenn McGrath
    Curtly Ambrose
    Allan Davidson
    Ray Lindwall
    Keith Miller

    Group C

    Richard Hadlee
    Joel Garner
    Wasim Akram
    Allan Donald
    Frank Tyson

    Group D

    Imran Khan
    Waqar Younis

    Last one of any two groups together would put any present day bowling attack to such levels of shame, it's not even funny. I'd sell my mum to see Roberts, Miller and Pollock bowling in tandem. You, Mr.Sean, are a hard man to please.

    Agree completely. I have the same last 4 as you; Pollock, Roberts, Tyson and Miller. Amazing lineup.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
