If Bumrah could stay fit for longer it might get interesting, but Cummins is #1 by quite a distance at this point.

Poor Anderson. Was the runner up to Steyn for basically his entire career and then Cummins comes along just as the Saffa retires.

Philander-Rabada-Cummins since Anderson got good. Anderson has been second to Steyn for most of his career by virtue of longevity, not by being the second best bowler.

Cummins quite clearly. Bumrah needs more than 14 Tests to be rated.

It would be interesting to travel into the future and see how they rate when their careers are finished.

Wagner is my no.1.

Cummins is close, but lacks the elite competitiveness.
Anderson is just biding his time to retire at a convenient point, like an old man trying to mow the lawn but his hip keeps giving him trouble.
Rabada is a clueless idiot who goes missing
Bumrah is a wily challenger who needs to also be preserved

The fact that he's the only lefty in the poll is telling. I have a soft spot for lefties because I am one (This should be added in the 10 things or more you didn't know about SCC1 thread).
