    bond=>mcgrath>akram

    Okay. So here are the stats. Clearly Bond didnt play enough tests but in pure skill he is better than both of the others. And in ODI's he leaves them in the dust



    even garner isnt as good. Garner is pretty close though not gonna lie.

    Ya, Shane Bond the greatest. How can there be any doubt?

    As good as Shane Bond was, Wasim Akram was far more skilled than him. Of course, there is no shame in being second best to Wasim Akram. Only a handful of great fast bowlers over the history of the game compare. In fact, if you are talking pure skill, I do not think even Glenn McGrath beats him.

    LOL. Yea Akram is worse than McGrath in every single statistic in both forms of the game (except wickets in ODI and 5 wicket hauls in tests ) but he is more skilled.

    How do you define skill?

    Is your "wow" better than "amazing" or the other way around?

    Statistics and skill do not neccessarily go hand in hand.

    All the stats show are that it was a terrible shame that Bond had such a wretched run with injuries.Could have gone down as ATG but wasn't on the park often enough sadly.
