    Best Deliveries

    I think we have had a similar thread before but I thought it would be interesting to have this conversation again.

    So name the bowlers who were the best at a particular delivery.

    Outswinger - Anderson/Steyn
    Inswinger - Waqar
    Toe Crusher - Waqar/Akhtar/Malinga
    Bouncer - Big Bird
    Cutter - McGrath/Asif
    Doosra - Saqlain
    Leg Break - Warne

    Never in a million years would I have thought Brumby to admit this!!!!!!

    I don't get the leg break choice. Why do you think Warne's leg break was better than anyone elses?

    Doosra -
    Leg Break (and most variations of) - Warne (for control and accuracy)
    Hutton - Gavaskar - Bradman - Tendulkar - V.Richards - Sobers - Knott - Warne - Marshall - Lillee - Ambrose

    Personal preference then I guess. Warne wasn't the biggest turner of his leg spinner by any stretch of the imagination.

    Chris Cairns had the best slower bouncer. The Malinga toe crusher is amazing, comes from a trajectory that just knocks people off their feet constantly.
    Direbirds FTW!

    I would include

    1) Wasim's ability to curve the ball(in the air) into the batsman and after pitching(or in the air) take the ball away..Dravid and Croft can vouch for it..What a thing of beauty..
    2) Qadir's googly was a beauty as well..anything Qadir was beautiful to watch
    3) Cutter or Legcutter -- Dennis Lillee..
    4) Outswinger -- Kapil Dev
    5) Slower ball -- Steve Waugh
    6) Bouncer -- Larwood
    7) flipper -- Warne until his finger/shoulder operation
    8) off spinner - Murali..man can turn a ball on glass

    What happened to that Bennett chap from NZ? Seemed to have a mean inswinger.
