    Shame we never saw the best of Simon Jones, he could've been great.

    Probably Anderson.

    Stuart Broad to overtake Anderson by the end of his career.

    You heard it here first
    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

    Pity Harmison wasn't at his best for long enough/often enough, at his best he was some bowler.

    He doesn't get anything like the credit he deserves on CW - I've never understood why not

    Someone voted for Caddick, that's what you get for not having a joke option I guess......

    I voted Caddick for a laugh because there was no Sidebum option. And yet it's interesting that Caddick's average is virtually identical to Anderson's... but everyone loves Jimmy...

    Different era, different pitches. If your going averages you'd go with Gough from that era.

    The second innings thing with Caddick convinces me he would have been dreck in this era.

    I just never rated Harmison, Dicko has nothing to do with it.

    Being a soft **** during the 06/07 Ashes tour on top of being totally pish in South Africa in 04/05 sealed it for me. Could never take to him for that.

    I'm probably more on Harmi's side than most, if you're talking brief peaks, then he'd be up there, but like others here a lot of his career he just wasn't that good.

    I'd probably go

    Jimmeh
    Gough
    Fraser
    Flintoff
    Harmison
    Hoggy
    Caddick
    Cork
    Jones
    Tremlett
    Sidebottom
    Headley

    The last four suffering because of lack of longevity.
