    So gratifying to make that list without a single England bowler in there. And rightly so, too. Closest would've been Gus Fraser imo, but he suffered from too many injuries which curtailed his output.

    Can I also say I'm a tad miffed at the "modern era" starting in the year I played my 15th year of cricket. That's balls, frankly.

    I think there'll sooner be another Bradman than another Warne. - Gidgeon Haigh

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler ever produced in this entire world - Muttiah Muralidaran

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler of all time - Glenn McGrath


    In my opinion Shane Warne is the greatest cricketer who's ever lived - Ian Botham

    Warne is the greatest cricketer to pick up a ball ever.
    And is the greatest bowler I have ever laid eyes on. - Brian Lara

    top 20 is a little too long I feel. Feels like a chore tbh
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    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

    Why do Weldone's and VCS's lists look so similar?
