Exit pursued by a bear
Anyone mentioning Shane Warne has to mention David Warner as well ftr.
My favourite action is probably Curtly Ambrose's or Dale Steyn's. Really dig Umesh Yadav's as well.
Not sure why people like Imran's so much, find it meh personally.
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

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)
Just watched this video of Jeff Thomson in action (incidently, one of the best videos of Thomo I've seen) and I'd have to agree with Richie Benaud's comment in the opening sequence - "But just have a look at him in slow motion, that's one of the most marvelous bowling actions I've ever seen". Also, I wouldn't want to be Clive Lloyd's jaw in the 1976 series - ouch!

Like a proper fanboy, I'll throw a nomination in for Keith Miller too. He didn't have the so-beautiful-you-want-to-cry smoothness of his new ball partner, but his action was wonderfully high and dynamic. When he could be arsed, anyway.
so when is this starting?
Close to 100 nominations already. If there's any obvious omissions, we can add them on.
In term of the battles, I'll try to distribute the bowlers evenly aligned with where I think they would seed. Also will start with with 2 from 4 going through to the next round
Here is the list...
Garth le Roux
Inzamam ul Haq
Corri van Zyl

that is a pretty big list....let the games begin
I nominated Ted McDonald too. There's very little footage of him, but it does exist.

^ Actually, forget it mate. It's fine if people want to rank only 1,2 or 3 bowlers, I can adjust points accordingly.
