    Southee + Mills. Batsmen of the 70s and 80s would've been utterly clueless to their gentle outswingers.

    Pollock/Donald, McGrath/Gillespie for more modern picks.

    Aamer/Asif had so much potential

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    If they keep playing as they are now, it wont be long before Steyn and Morkel belong on this list.

    One of the best ever may have been a duo that were together at county level. Not many people enjoyed batting against Nottinghamshire when Richard Hadlee and Clive Rice were in tandem.

    Also, Garth Le Roux and Imran Khan at Sussex must have been a handful.
