    Ambrose v McGrath - revisited 2013

    Lots of discussion in the older thread about how different a new one would be, so only one way to find out.
    Lots of people peeking to see who they voted for last time.

    Tempted by the Essex man, but Curtly was a much better bowler than Pringle.

    Mcgrath by a hair. Both of them top five All Time in my estimation.

    W.I. XI
    Greenidge | Hunte | Richards^ | Headley* | Lara^ | Sobers5^ | Walcott+ | Marshall1 | Ambrose2 | Holding3 | Garner4

    Does anyone else get annoyed by the fact that kyear2 calls McGrath "Mcgrath" every single time, or should I seek mental help?

    I mean, I should probably seek mental help regardless, but I want to know if I should bring this up when I do.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Within the inch of space that the greatest of bowlers belong to - McGrath by a decent amount.

    The gap between them is negligible enough not to be of a difference on a practical level but I'd still take McGrath without thinking that very hard.

    McGrath, I think. Australia's dominance rose with a new generation of batsmen piling up as much as they liked on home featherbeds, which they could always get away with because McGrath and Warne would bowl a side out on anything. It's not much of a clear cut so there's bound to be a bit of a dubious reason one way or the other, and that's mine.

    The poll also uses the present tense. I think that probably leans it further towards the Australian as well.

    This whole situation is just watson doing a BCCI... didn't like it when Ambrose won it fair and square, so demanded a recount and now it looks as though McGrath is going to win. Not difficult to work out... watson= Srinivasan
