What features do you look for in the perfect Bowling combination? For the sake of ease and uniformity, maybe we should only look at a 4-person combination. Do you prefer 3 pacers-1 spinner, or 2 each? What variations do you look for in the combination? Is a left handed pacer a significant add-on? I am listing down some combos on which maybe you could give your opinions:
1: Marshall | Warne | Murali | McGrath
2: Wasim | Marshall | Murali/Warne | Barnes
3: Wasim | Marshall | Murali/Warne | Lillee
4: Marshall | Lillee | Murali/Warne | Barnes
5: Marshall | Garner | Murali/Warne | McGrath
6: Hadlee | Wasim | Murali/Warne | Roberts |
I personally like 5 a lot with Murali.
Also, for the purpose of this discussion, maybe we could try and come up with a few standards like which bowlers are quite similar so that the variation bit is easier to discuss. For example, Hadlee and McGrath are quite similar bowlers, both with respect to style and achievements.
I hope this turns out to be an enlightening discussion
