Let me know if Im missing anyone. Feel free to drop the reasoning behind your attack! Mine is Marshall-Steyn-Mcgrath :)

Marshall and McGrath first two picked.

Third would be Garner, Lillee, Ambrose, Wasim or Hadlee. Hard to split them for different reasons.

This is something I wrestle with. At the moment it's

Marshall
McGrath
Steyn

If I'm forced to factor in batting or best balance.
Hadlee, Marshall, Steyn. But currently it is what's listed above.

My thoughts exactly. Might go Shane Bond for the 3rd spot just for something a bit different.

Marshall - greatest bowler of all time
Wasim Akram - greatest leftie of all time
Walsh - greatest workhorse of all time

Wasim gets the nod over a lot of peers on his level just due to the left arm variety and the swing option IMO if professional selectors were to sit down.


Marshall/Mcgrath/Wasim offers a lot.

Ambrose/Garner for the super height and bounce is one thing missing but McGrath can kind of hold that role as well as keeping out Hadlee for just consistent line and length. And of course for just like, consistent ATG level bowling Marshall takes the cake.

Was Donald the fastest of these blokes? Maybe him or Steyn?

I'm just thinking because they're all so similar in averages do you want a mr consistent, a speed demon and a left arm swinger. Maybe Marshall/Steyn or Donald and Wasim?

Marshall and McGrath pick themselves. After that I might lean towards Steyn for reverse and brutal spells.
