    Bowler of the World Cup 2007

    Several contenders have already put their hand up to be recognised as the bowler of the World Cup 2007 , namely Glen MacGrath, Brad Hogg, Makhaya Ntini, Shane Bond, Lasith Malinga, Murali, Charl Langeveldt, Nathan Bracken....

    To me Malinga's amazing effort puts him at the top, but McCrath is up there...Does this man get better as he ages or what ... Unbelievable ... Any way here is a link to current Stats on bowlers wickets at World Cup to date... Discuss ...

    For me Bond is the best bowler in the WC so far, his stats might not be as good as some of other bowlers but his bowling has been superb to say the least.


    I also think its a bit to pre-mature to say who is the best bowler in the WC at this stage of the tournament as some big games are still to be played , we should assess it once the tournament is in its final leg.

    Bond and Malinga for me, they have been very impressive so far in this tournament.

    Believe it or not but i think Hogg has been more impressive than ever, though many others would disagree saying tha Malinga or Murali are better but i think Hogg has played a big part in getting us few impressive victories.

    I agree, and speaking of his stats, firstly he was rested for one of the minnow games and secondly his economy rate is a freakish 2.56 per over, miles ahead of the 2nd most economical bowler. Add to that his average of 11

    Agree completely, he was basically unplayable in the first few overs against the West Indies. How didn't get more wickets in his opening spell, I will never know.

    I think Lasith has been outstanding. Batsmen have not had an answer for his pace, and "those" four wickets were incredible. Unpresidented acheivement and my money is on him finishing with the most Wickets in WC 2007.

    Malinga has been woefully overrated IMO. Without that wonder over he has been fairly innocuous.

    The wonder of that spell was spread over two overs.

    Bond, fairly easily. Done it every time he's been asked to bowl.

    I will agree that his economy rate has been quite high. It always is, but for the amount of wickets he takes, and when he can get them, he is invaluable. Despite that though, I think England dealt with him well in 2006, and he will hopefully be less effective on wednesday
