    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

Averaged under 25 against all teams. Got the big guns in the opposition out regularly. Had pace, swing, variation, aggression, stamina and style in tons. Prime candidate for the title of "Best pacer Ever". Just an inch ahead of even the best of the best like hadlee, mcgrath, imran, lillee, ambrose, trueman etc.

    This. Marshall stood out as the best in an era chock full of contenders.

    This is awesome
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    Malcolm Marshall: The Predator | Cricket News | Cricbuzz.com


    Andy Lloyd, for example, had his Test match batting career curtailed to just 33 minutes during the first Test of the 1984 visit to England. Struck on the right temple by a screaming Marshall bouncer, Lloyd was out like a light as he fell motionless on the pitch. Hospitalized for several days, he was left with permanent vision impairment, never played cricket again until 1985, and failed to regain the form that would warrant a Test recall.
    During the first One day International of England's 1986 tour to the West Indies, played in Jamaica, Mike Gatting lost his wicket when a bouncer from Marshall was redirected onto his stumps by his nose. So vicious was the blow that fragments of bone cartilage were found lodged in the seam of the ball. It was the first game of the series and Gatting never made another appearance until the last Test in Antigua, almost two months later.

    well seemingly all the previous discussion was someone talking to their other multis

    It's a lot closer than the poll result suggests.

    Taking it on bare stats and the fact that Marshall died tragically early are the main factors here.

    But huge kudos to Marshall for bring the best of a huge strike-force of West Indian bowlers in the 1980s.
    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan

    Massively disagree, what I loved most about Mcgrath was his intensity and consistency, but to watch Marshall bowl was exhilerating. I think it was Bagbath who articulated it the best earlier in this thread.

    For me personally with Bradman and Sobers one of the top three players of All Time, though freely admit that probably only Nufan would share that opinion.

    Too close to call, for mine. Both amazing bowlers but in different ways. Abstain.

    McGrath doesn't actually have any genuine votes. You take out kyear22, princessEWS, avidblazeback, jodphuronstilts and one chronically biased Australian and there ain't a lot left.

    Mcgrath was great no doubt and the 2nd best ever IMO.

    kyear22 was already banned, who was he/she a multi of?

    Of course everyone knows it's you - he was just seeing if you would own up.

    McGrath continues to rack up the votes. There's now a false TEC and Precam amongst the voters. Makes you wonder what the mods are here for.

    Apart from the chronically biased Aussie they are only 4 legitimate votes for Mcgrath. Feel like there is a change afoot here from Mcgrath to Lillee especially among the Aussie supporters. Thoughts?
