    Did Lillee's action get more aesthetically pleasing as he got older and bowled slower? It looks a bit rushed with less of a jump in the early 70s.

    Warne had pretty much the perfect action for leg-breaks and Courtney had a wonderful, rangy, loose-limbed elegance about him.

    Warne's action was beautiful but I definitely wouldn't say it's the model leg-break action for kids. Relies on sheer power through the shoulder and wrist, MacGill utilised run-up speed much better.

    Regardless,

    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

    I realise the battle is over and it doesn't really matter, but this makes no sense to me - I was giving 4 points to Lillee, 3 to Botham and 1.5 each to the other two.

    Yeah 1.5 each is fine and makes sense. I wasn't sure that's what you were implying. It's still allocating 10 points across 4 players, so all good.
