    The Auckland Bull

    The Auckland Bull

    Is Sir Richard Hadlee the greatest bowler to have emerged from New Zealand? It has to be conceded that he probably is, but as Martin explains there is another worthy candidate.

    Quality stuff. Have often wondered why we don't rate Cowie as highly as others with similar stats. Now I'm even more unsure.

    Yeah, great article. Have had a love/hate relationship with Cowie for a while myself ever since early editions of my statistical rankings insisted he was in fact the greatest bowler of all time; made me read into him.
