This thread is all about your personal Top 5 current players
e.g Top 5 Spinners or Top 5 Six Hitters
Feel free to post new top 5 categories as it goes on.

To start off with lets do Top 5... Death Bowlers

ummm, no. He bowled one over in the 2nd match because the actual death bowlers got smashed. Cairns and Mills had the job in all 3 matches iirc.

Death bowling for me: Last 6-7 overs
But that's wrong. It's been pretty obvious in this series that Vettori has been taking himself (and Styris) off/finishing his overs just before the slog goes on. The batsman aren't just slogging because Vettori has gone off either. Generally you will see a team increase the pace through an innings, but it won't be unrequited slogging until the last 3 or 4 overs.

5. Giles
utter nonsense.

muralitharan and warne are without doubt the two best.
after that, it's easily kumble.
then vettori/kaneria/harbhajan/giles to contend for the final two spots.

No, I just don't think they have the same impact on the game which is obviously because of less variety and not as much turn. In saying that, Vettori would've been my number 6 and H. Singh 7.
