    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    somewhat like Lillee in his time, Wasim commands the respect of his generation of fast bowlers

    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

    Hayden made it only in the 00s. Greenidge deserves to be the opener with Sunny. Even Gooch is a good shout. Not Matty.

    Imran and Hadlee in the 80s were superior to Kallis and McGrath in the 90s. They were taking wickets at sub 20 averages for 10 years. Imran also averaged 50+ with the bat.

    Yeah, you're right re Hayden. Put Greenidge in I think even though I subconsciously think of him as a 70s batsman.

    Imran and Hadlee are not good enough batsman to replace Kallis at No.6, but could easily contend for McGraths spot. However, Marshall and McGrath are such different styles of bowler that I think that they would complement eachother 'perfectly'.

    I think Hadlee could bowl line and length for extended periods of time.....besides i think McGrath really hit his stride in the 00s and not the 90s.....would agree with bagapath that I would Imran and Hadlee of the 80s over McG of the 90s

    McGrath started in 1993 and was awesome from 1995 onwards (just look at those sub-50 Strike Rates);

    http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/eng...s;type=bowling

    1995
    Tests = 10
    Wickets = 52
    Ave. = 22
    SR = 45

    1996
    Tests = 5
    Wickets = 30
    Ave. = 18
    SR = 45

    1997
    Tests = 13
    Wickets = 63
    Ave = 21
    SR = 49

    etc...etc

    But yes, I see your point.

    01. Sunil Gavaskar
    02. Gordon Greenidge
    03. Viv Richards
    04. Sachin Tendulkar
    05. Brian Lara
    06. Jacques Kallis
    07. Ian Healy
    08. Richard Hadlee
    09. Malcolm Marshall
    10. Wasim Akram
    11. Shane Warne

    Now I'm trying to justifying Wasim over Imran or Ambrose - and having problems inside my head other than a bit of excellent left-arm variety is a very good idea.

    I think Imran and Hadlee both deserve a shout ahead of Ambrose (considering that we are taking only the 80s, over the course of their careers Ambrose might be a slightly better bowler). Both Hadlee and Imran have very complete records, did very well against the best team of their era and had some batting skills to boot. Why do you consider Ambrose ahead of Hadlee?

    I'll put it out there that there is absolutely zilch reason to include Kallis in that 80s and 90s team.
