    I make that;

    Tendulkar = 13
    Amla = 1
    Jayasuriya = 1


    Wasim = 12
    McGrath = 6
    Garner = 5
    Donald = 2
    Bond = 1
    Waqar = 1
    Hadlee = 1
    Ambrose = 1

    Very close between McGrath and Garner for the remaining spot.

    (And since it's so close please check the tally for yourself)

    Just wondering whether the stats for bowlers from the 70s-80s are better than they should be because the size of the field they played on was not reduced like it is now. That is, a 4 really had to hit the picket fence at the MCG or SCG, and so bowlers were more able to maintain good Economy Rates.

    By the the time McGrath, Akram, and Murali started to play ODIs their job was made a lot more difficult due to boundary ropes and small out-fields. Hence their stats are really better than they appear relative to bowlers from previous decades.

    By the same logic, should we favour batsman from the 70s-80s because their job was also more difficult? That is, if they played in the 2000s then their Average maybe about 10 runs higher because 4s are easier to hit.

    Was considering asking to have Amla as an option at 3, but he hasn't played for long enough I guess.
