    Greatest Ever West Indies Bowler?

    In my other poll, Sobers is leading comfortably in regards to who is the greatest ever West Indies cricketer.

    Now who do all you think is the greatest ever West Indies bowler?

    For me it just had to be Mikey - an absolutely fantastic bowler and a Derbyshire man to boot.

    Can we have a poll so I can vote for Lawrence Rowe too?

    Marshall is arguably the greatest fast bowler ever and hence I consider him to be the greatest West Indian bowler as well.

    I'm with Anil in voting, but obviously none of them are fit to wash Harmo or AA's boots

    Oh absolutely! They are both beyond mere polls, in that zone where no ordinary mortals dare trespass...

    Its amazing how many great fast bowlers WI have produced, Holding, Roberts, Garner, Ambrose, Hall, Marshall are all number one in my opinion, very difficult to choose between them. Even bowlers like Croft, Clark, Walsh are pretty damn good.

    no doubt in my mind that Marshall was the best WI's bowler...and by quite a margin as far as I am concerned

    Marshall gets my vote without much deliberation. Ambrose second.

    Marshall, then (in no particular order) Ambrose, Roberts, Holding Garner, Croft (under-rated IMO), Hall, Griffith, Walsh.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
