    For the upcoming bowlers tournament, should it be 32 or 64? There is such a wide field of bowlers who could be placed on the highest tier IMO, just looking at the bowling averages list there is so little between sooooo many names.

    It's weird though I think it'd be a fairly pace dominated contest, with maybe Warne, Murali, Laker, O'Reilly, Verity, Tayfield, Gibbs and Grimmett the only guys likely to make the top 32... with maybe Ironmonger and Mailey scraping in... again due to the romanticism surrounding the pre war players.

    Would be interesting to see how many Windies quicks would get nominated for the 32.

    I'd say def Ambrose, Marshall, Holding, Roberts and Garner, most likely Walsh, and Croft or Hall wouldn't surprise me either. Sylvester and Bishop if there is 64 entrants. I'm excited
    64 entrants. 16 seeds.

    Marshall, McGrath, Warne, Muralitharan, Hadlee, Barnes, Steyn, Lillee, Ambrose, Akram, O'Reilly, Donald, Holding, Davidson, Imran, Lindwall/ Trueman/ Garner

    maybe Waqar can squeeze into the 16 too? But you're right 64 would be best. Maybe Round 1 can be split so people don't have to vote 32 times in one go lol.

    Maybe swap Garner or O'Reilly for one or two of the above, but that would be my 16 seeds, in no particular order.

    Am I the only one to think McGrath > bowler X?

    Anyways don't agree with comparing spinners with paceman.. Different roles

    I like the way your post is timed at 5 minutes before my post that you quoted.
