    Nah, I'll bite:

    Inzy - 11
    Ajmal - 10
    Botha - 10
    Shabbir - 10
    Gannon - 9
    Samuels - 9
    Williamson - 9
    Shoaib Malik - 8.5
    Jermaine Lawson - 8
    Murali - 8
    Kirtley - 6.5
    Hall - 6
    Hafeez - 5
    Lee - 3.5
    Shoaib - 3
    Praveen - 2
    Ashwin - 1.5

    & obviously chaps like Tony Lock and Gordon Rorke (he of the 12 yard drag) from days of yore were filthy too.
    I would have thought Murali is either 0 or 10. Can you explain the 8? Why is he not worse than Malik, Botha etc.?

    Well he does have the unique genetics so have adjusted accordingly.

    Don't buy that he's 0 or 10 tho. The fact that some deliveries looked worse than others suggests he sometimes put a little more "work" on the ball than others.

    Has to be around a 7 on the Brumbeh Scale, IMO.

    Here's one that divides opinion a bit - Ojha. What say ye, Brumbeh?
    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    Rejecting 'selection deontology' since Mar '15

    Bracewell's selection - given that he's seen as the green pitch specialist - means we've trolled ourselves with the pitch.

    It's very McCullum and a great way for him to bow out.

    Nah, Ojha barely registers a flicker. Maybe I've set my bar lower nowadays.

    Narine's a bit poor, but there'd be several against the wall before him. Given I gave Hafeez a 5, he'd be a 4-4.5, maybe?

    Unfair to have Ajmal on the same level as Botha seeing as the latter actually got busted during testing imo.

    Also, will nominate Eranga. Seen any of him, Brumby?

    Reckon Roelof van der Merve is a bit of a shocker myself.

    I actually think Ajmal's action for his basic offie is worse, tbh. Both about as bad as it's possible to be without wearing a large leather mitt and standing on a mound tho.

    & no, I haven't caught him in action yet.
