As there was criteria given for voting I voted for Botham who's the most naturally gifted all around cricketer from the list.
Given New Zealand's quality of the time, a bowler that owned much harder against "minnows" than he did anyone else was probably worth quite a bit more to them than one who did the opposite anyway. Assuming the end goal of cricket is to win matches.
As a matter of curiosity who do you think had the best batting line-up in their careers? Hadlee did marvelously against the best team of his time/probably the best players of pace too. Whereas in McGrath's career the best players of pace were probably S.Africa and the best line-up in general would have been India's.
McGrath's is 27. Marshall's 22.51.
