Ted McDonald has been overlooked so far I think, so a nomination for him is overdue.
Though the final of this for me has to be Larwood v Lindwall.
Since Waqar - who should take this out - has already been nominated several times,
I'll nominate Joel Garner. ****ing scary. Would've been an absolute nightmare on a surface with movement off the pitch considering his height, impeccable length and action.
2 deliveries of what I'm talking about + another video of a jaffa with the camera focus on his action, courtesy robelinda, of course.
Think Starc's already had a shout & I love his languid action, makes it look so fluid and effortless. Looks to have a v slight tendancy to fall away to his right at times, so it isn't quite the finished article, but seems so natural compared to (say) Siddle's.
Early days for Jackson Bird too, but he looks to have a very solid MO. SImple, easily repeatable action.

Rodney Hogg and Corri van Zyl had awesome action as well! Dont forget Garth le Roux

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)
Corrie van Zyl
Garth le Roux
