    I have not yet seen a greater pace bowler than McGrath.Ambrose was a true great it had to besaid but when it came to results Mc Grath was just a wicket taking machine.

    I mean, I should probably seek mental help regardless, but I want to know if I should bring this up when I do.
    Yep, definitely. But I have a far better reason IMO.

    Overall I went with McGrath, but if I wanted someone to intimidate a batsman I'd choose Ambrose.
    R.I.P Craigos, you were a champion bloke. One of the best

    RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

    Would love to see Ambrose and McGrath bowling in tandem to Steve Waugh and Ramnaresh Sarwan.

    Mcgrath, easily.
