CW Ranks Top 25 Bowlers of All Time (Version 2010)

NUFAN

I'm stoked for Ambrose, loved watching him bowl.

3 - Fred Trueman
2 - Shane Warne
1 - Joel Garner

I was originally voting just on Tests performances, but including ODI's Garner deserves a few votes IMO

Where are the Lohmann fans? I remember he got quite a few votes in one early round, not sure which one. He hasn't got any point in this one, except the 1 point from me.

I was giving him 3 points from the get-go I believe. May have been 2 with Barnes getting my 3. I stopped voting though; probably explains the missing votes.

I shall be maintaining two counts: one showing how many of the already ranked players played in which decade, and the other showing the fast bowling-spin bowling split.

Decade-wise split
1890 and before: 0
1891-1900: 0
1901-10: 1 (14%)
1911-20: 1 (14%)
1921-30: 0
1931-40: 0
1941-50: 0
1951-60: 0
1961-70: 0
1971-80: 2 (29%)
1981-90: 3 (43%)
1991-2000: 5 (71%)
2001-10: 3 (43%)

Fast-spin split
Fast Bowler: 5 (71%)

The voting process for rank 8 starts.
