    Reading in the Ambrose thread I saw people saying Ambrose was good but McGrath is the greatest ever so he edges out Ambrose.

    Just wanted to see how strongly people felt about this.

    Can you make the case why he's better than Mcgrath ? Or are his special skills pointless because Mcgrath picked up wickets on flat pitches ?

    Can people who voted for Mcgrath make the argument why he's better ? Or is this just personal feelings?

    Marshall is dead so McGrath is probably better

    Statistically, better average (lowest average for anyone with over 300 wickets I think), much better strike rate. Also, Marshall ripped apart India numerous times on extremely flat pitches in a way most other fast bowlers can only dream of. Don't get me wrong, McGrath bowled superbly in India as well, but never tore through our lineup (superb stats but no five-fors) and rip us a new one like Marshall did several times.
    There's not much to separate them, to be honest but most people do consider Marshall superior... and the majority of CW considers him to be the best quick bowler ever.

    Longevity lol...

    CW members sometimes love to ignore that they are statistically better players than their favorite players.

    And that stats cannot show the viciousness of Marshall ... It doesn't show the swing. .
    Spiteful bowler he was. .. hero bowling with a broken arm. . These things just put him in another class.

    Stats will more likely reflect their effectiveness. That's what most people are interested in.

    In fact, he has the lowest average for any bowler with over 200 wickets. There are only 2 bowlers who have 150+ wickets and a lower average. Sydney Barnes (189 wickets @ 16.43) and Alan Davidson (186 wickets @ 20.53). Davidson has to be the most underrated fast bowler ever..

    Davo was great, but the general criticism of him is his SR of 62. Contrast that to say, Dale Steyn, who strikes at 42, and it's quite a difference. Means Davo has to bowl an extra 3 and a bit overs per wicket.

    That said, I think Davo bowled in an era of obdurate, low risk batsmen, which might explain it in part.

    Davo was a legend. I met him once and he was the nicest bloke. Would happily talk cricket with anyone for hours. Real gentleman.
