    Best bowling finishers in ODI cricket.

    Malinga and Starc come to mind. Anyone else?

    Now that the obvious joke is out of the way, yeah, Starc and Maling currently. Wasim, Flintoff, McGrath ,Garner from eras gone by.

    gough could bowl those hooping yorkers almost at will.

    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

    Tim Southee is pretty good at this skill I suppose.

    Sometimes. Definitely our best death bowler, but he isn't anywhere near the Malinga territory. Southee bowls a pretty good bouncer, has a nice slower variation and you can rely on that game in game out. His yorker and lines at the death can sometimes go missing though. Which typically means he will bowl 3-4 good balls, and 2-3 balls that are decent if we're lucky and outright pies if we're not.

    I think with the real top level death bowlers like Malinga, you'll see a few inswinging yorkers, a slower ball, a couple bouncers and all of a sudden you're looking at 5-6 good balls.

    People are definitely waaaaaaay too judgy on how a batsman comes off in the short term when criticising at the death though. Sometimes there is absolutely nothing the bowler can do, they're minmising risk, not eliminating it. There is no such thing as an unhittable ball these days.

    I always felt that Lee was as least as reliable as McGrath as a death bowler.

    Wasn't Umar Gul awesome for around 12-24 months? Around the time Pakistan won the T20 WC in 2009?
