    Who is the worst pace bowler to take over 300 test wickets?

    Simple question really. For me, the England pair look hard to beat.

    Out of that lot Kapil is the best followed closely by the English pair who are well ahead of the rest. Broad is a magnificent bowler with success around the world. I believe it was you who got a deserved slap down when you were trying to be "controversial" about this before. You seem to be a bit miffed and decided to megaphone your trolling from a silly remark into an entire thread.

    It's a genuine and defensible question mate. Broad and Anderson are certainly in the frame for this query no matter what the fanboys think. Not like I included Truman or even Willis.

    I also don't remember any slap down much less a "deserved" one .

    Brett Lee

    Zaheer Khan is another interesting one. His career has gone through multiple phases which is quite unusual for a bowler. Usually you go in one trajectory - average to good to very good (Anderson) or good to very good to mediocre (Gillespie).

    Zaheer started of as good, then became crap around 04-06,I mean he wasn't even the first choice behind Irfan and Balaji and that says a lot. Then the 2007 England tour he really picked himself up and contributed to a series win, was India's best pace bowler by a mile for the next few years. 2011 onwards the downward spiral started again.

    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    It's trolling not to go along with forum orthodoxy and not go on about how great Anderson and Broad are and how you want to boof them for their magnificence.

    I could mention Jimmehs bowling average outside England and how that compares with other players but I guess that would be trolling.

    I like how it's a massive effrontery to include Broad and Anderson in a poll about the worst pacer to get 300 wickets when, objectively they have among the worst records for such bowlers. I didn't even vote for either of them!

    I didn't comment on whether they belong in the argument. Let me humour you. Here's why you're trolling:

    1. Obvious troll username
    2. You picked the two of them in the OP, as though they are the same bowler, making your intentions beyond transparent
    3. See 1 & 2
