    Best Ever First Class Attack

    The recent NSW vs WA game has got me wondering what the best ever first class attack has been. I'm sure there were probably some great WI FC attacks through the 70s/80s. But which ones were the best that took the field in an actual game?

    Barbados must have had Garner and Marsall together. Surrey in the '50s, Laker, Lock, Bedser twins, Loader. Notts, Rice and Hadlee. Somerset, Beefy and Gardner. Notts had a good one last season, Broad, Pattinson, Ball.

    There would've been times where they had Garner, Marshall, Daniel and Clarke playing, that is a very strong attack.

    Surrey also looks pretty great.

    There may have been times where Victoria fielded Reiffel, Fleming, Miller, Warne, Harvey. That's a pretty good one.

    I feel like McGrath, Lee and MacGill all played a SS/PM game together at some point.

    I remember a time when Kevin Darlington, Reon King, Colin Stuart, Mahendra Nagamootoo, and Neil 'the Beast from the East' McGarell all played for Guyana at the same time in Busta Cup cricket

    I can't help but be the arsehole here and point out that Tests are First Class games...

    At least you are honest. We kinda got the gist of what OP meant...

    Qld had Scott Muller back then too. Also McDermott, but his career didn't overlap with Noffkee's. Edit: plus the spin of Paul Jackson.

    Victoria's lineup from that era is pretty awesome also. Fleming, Reiffel, Warne, Saker.

    .
    And Miller. Matt Inness too.

    Queensland also had Joe Dawes. Some quite strong attacks around that period.

    Much as I love all of those guys none of them are anywhere near ATG status.

    Something I only learned very recently. But for the purposes of this thread people would ignore tests. Otherwise we'll boil it down to whichever Pakistan support bowler happened to be the best when Imran, Wasim and Waqar played together, whichever the best Windies quartet was, McGrath Warne Gillespie and Bichel/Lee/Kasper or Lindwall, Miller and the best spinner to ever be on the same team as them (Grimmett?).

    But I'm not totally interested in that. I'm interested in a domestic attack that was as close to an ATG attack as possible.
