Fast Bowler Survivor Round of 32 and Preliminary Finals

In contrast to the Group stages and the Round of 64, the Round of 32 and Quarter finals will be groups of four bowlers. The format for the quarters will change slightly as well.

In the Round of 32, we will be ranking 8 groups of 4 bowlers in order from best to worst (however you define that).

In the Preliminary finals, we will be ranking 4 groups of 4 bowlers and then ranking the same bowlers again, this time in different groups. These rankings will be combined to determine the top 8 fast bowlers of all time, who will progress to the quarter finals.

will be the universal view probably.

Marshall #1. Toughie after that.
Davidson
Roberts
Bond

for me tho. Davidson played in a fairly roady era. Great average. 2 fundamentally different bowlers and as odd a comparison as you could get at this stage tho.
