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.
