Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?
With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
I think the difference between Proctor and Tayfield is smaller than the difference between Holding and Gibbs though.

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
Donald and Procter
Steyn: Matches = 11 Ave = 27.28 SR = 46.0
S.Pollock: Matches = 13 Ave = 36.85 SR = 80.8
Adcock: Matches = 5 Ave = 29.28 SR = 74.8
P.Pollock: Matches = 14 Ave = 27.65 SR = 57.0
Procter: Matches = 7 Ave = 15.02 SR = 36.9
Actually you're right Satan, Donald's figures aren't flash. But they still significantly better than Shaun Pollock who is rank last.
The surprise package is Peter Pollock. On those numbers he deserves more votes than he is getting!
And we also can draw a reasonable conclusion from those 7 Test matches of Mike Procter. That is, he must have been one hell of a fast bowler.

Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)
Both Pollock and Procter should make it but I'm trying not to over-think it and just pick who I think are the best two pacers.
I want Procter in the side too, and I will have him ahead of Shaun Pollock as first change.
You don't allow Bradman to average 100. He averages 100 because nobody can control his scoring - Coronis at his eloquent best
Draft Side: Hobbs | Hutton | Don | Pollock | Ponting |ABDV | Miller | Davidson | Warne | Garner | Waqar
