    Greatest Aussie fast bowler

    Think this thread is long overdue. We all know that Mr Warnie is regarded as the greatest Oz spinner (and possibly of all time), no comment about Bradman or Adam Gilchrist in their respective traits. Who exactly though, is the greatest Aussie paceman. I have narrowed it down to the following: Lillee, Mcgrath, Lindwall, Miller, Davidson.
    Cause Slifer said so.........!!!!

    Lack of Trent Copeland in this poll is alarming.

    I cannot answer the question. This will turn into the timeless CW debate of how you compare bowlers across time periods.

    Where's Charlie Blythe and "Typhoon" Tyson?
    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

    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    Frederick Spofforth is a glaring omission. For me, it goes like:

    McGrath > Lillee > Davidson >= Miller > Lindwall >= Spofforth
