1. Archie Jackson
2. Herbert Sutcliffe
3. Ted Dexter
4. Martin Crowe

8. Wasim Akram
9. Jim Laker
10. Alec Bedser

Prasanna or Saqlain?
Normally I'd select Prasanna but having Imran and Miandad in the side changes the dynamics somewhat. So on the basis of the this superb 10 wicket haul against India at Chennai, and a Strike Rate of 67.64, I'll go for Saqlain Mushtaq (9th Wicket partnership);
01. Geoff Boycott
02. Hanif Mohammad
03. Brian Lara
04. Dudley Nourse
05. Vijay Hazare
06. Javed Miandad
07. Imran Khan
08. Ray Lindwall
09. Jackie Hendriks
10. Saqlain Mushtaq
11. Joel Garner

I am often asked who was the best, fastest or toughest bowler I ever faced and I quite enjoy giving different answers every time. Well, it keeps me amused anyway –but the underlying point is that one could revise this whole list on a daily basis and never really be right and never really be wrong - DAVID GOWER
Blakus - Bill Voce (Merchant)
Dan - Maurice Tate (Lords)
Himannv - Farokh Engineer (Team Blackout)
KK - Stuart Law (Debut)
Michael - Charlie Macartney (Lords)
Baxter - Harold Larwood (Dismissed) - What a get this late in the game. Must have balls of steel.
Watson - Saqlain Mushtaq (9th Wicket)

HowSTAT! Player Bowling Analysis
And here is Prasanna's line-up of dismissals for comparison;
Personally, I don't think that there's a lot between them as off-spinners and both can do the job of dismissing top-notch batsman.

I myself would have gone for Saqlain! He was just a damn intelligent offie.

Knew it was a mistake leaving this till last - can't find anyone I want but I guess Moises Henriques can do a job at #8. Considered Southee, but he seems like a spare if he's never getting the new ball.
