I'm a good example I guess in that I think Ambrose was the better of the two but wouldn't have either of them in genuine contention for my ATWXI.

Moeen is a perfectly fine bowler FFS
Such similar bowlers. Ambrose just had a touch more intimidation I think. Depends on what you want from your bowler. In my mind I think McGrath was more accurate. But Ambrose could be as well. Such a tough choice. I'll just take Marshall then
My Current XI 1.Cook 2. Pujara 3.Smith 4.Du Plessis 5.DeVilliers* 6. Watling+ 7.Faulkner 8.Ashwin 9.Philander 10.Wahab Riaz 11.Steyn

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
I'd rather face chris harris thanks

It seems a harsh call at first to say they're not amongst top 4. I don't think they're far behind. who's your top 4?
McGrath - but by a margin so small it can only be displayed using complex algebra
World XI Since 1990 -
1. Gooch 2. Dravid 3. Ponting 4. Tendulkar 5. Lara 6. Kallis 7. Gilchrist 8. Akram 9. Warne 10. Ambrose 11. McGrath

I am often asked who was the best, fastest or toughest bowler I ever faced and I quite enjoy giving different answers every time. Well, it keeps me amused anyway –but the underlying point is that one could revise this whole list on a daily basis and never really be right and never really be wrong - DAVID GOWER
They're not the four best bowlers by much if at all though, and some other **** might pick a team who can bat to 11.
Is my 8-11, but I'm not sold the above are the four best bowlers in history. Bats deep though.
