Mr Cricket's opinion of the best bowlers.
but no one has mentioned the quicks of the west indies in the eighties and before that the mid seventies.
there is a famous video of a michael holding over to brian close in the now infamous oval test of 1976,where holding took his 14 wickets.nasty,acccurate(for maiming the batsmen lol) and very unplayable!
forget about your harmisons,your lees et al,this stuff was the real deal!
relentless!

Indeed. This was when I first remember test cricket with Holding & Roberts taking our batsmen apart. They were quick enough already but we could have done without Greig's famous "grovel" remark. In those days the best way to play those bowlers was from the non-strikers end

I just about remember their tour of 1980 and then Big Bird Garner and Holding were the two I most remember, but my first test actually attending was the blackwash match of 1984.

I think Hussey was talking about recent times.

Australian bowling

Since McGrath retired in 2007

Johnson (34) 73 Tests 313 at 28.40 - Retired
Siddle (31) 61 Tests 208 at 29.88
Bollinger (34) 12 Tests 50 wickets at 25.92
Hilfenhaus (32) 27 Tests 99 wickets at 28.50
McKay (32) 1 Test at 101.00
Harris (35) 27 Tests 113 at 23.52 - Retired
George (29) 1 Test 2 wickets at 38.50
Copeland (29) 3 Tests 6 wickets at 37.83
Cummins (22) 1 Test 7 wickets at 16.71
Pattinson (25) 16 Tests 64 wickets 26.14
Starc (26) 25 Tests 91 wickets at 30.58
Hastings (30) 1 Test 1 wicket at 153.00
Faulkner (25) 1 Test 6 wickets at 16.33
Hazelwood (25) 16 Tests 67 wickets at 24.08

England

Tremlett (32) 12 Tests 53 wickets at 27.00 - Retired
Broad (29) 91 Tests 333 wickets at 28.66
Pattinson (36) 1 Test 2 wickets at 48.00 - Retired
Khan (35) 1 Test 1 wicket at 132.00 - Retired
Bresnan (30) 23 Tests 72 wickets at 32.73
Onions (33) 9 Tests 32 wickets at 29.90
Finn (26) 29 Tests 113 wickets at 28.34
Shahzad (30) 1 Test 4 wickets at 15.75
Woakes (26) 6 Tests 8 wickets at 63.75
Stokes (24) 23 Tests 57 wickets at 38.07
Rankin (31) 1 Test 1 wicket at 81.00
Jordan (27) 8 Tests 21 wickets at 35.80
Wood (26) 8 Tests 25 wickets at 34.40

Was looking at this because Siddle is a fitness doubt. 9 players only played 1 Test. Some of them as injury replacements and probably only Cummins likely to get another Test, well maybe Hastings. If Marsh is ever injured then Faulkner might play.

You wonder how many Tests is enough to know if a bowler will make it. I am thinking of Woakes, Jordan and Wood. Will Jordan and Woakes become injury replacements? Will Tom Curran and Topley be tried while they are still very young? Think of Rabada 6 Tests 24 at 24.70.

South Africa - Steyn Philander Morkel Rabada
England - Anderson Broad Finn Wood
New Zealand - Boult Southee Wagner Bracewell
Australia - Starc Hazelwood Siddle Pattinson
Pakistan - Amir JKhan Riaz Asif
India - Sharma Yadav Shami Kumar

Can't think of 4 for the other countries

At the moment even if England had a first choice line up of say Hoggard, Harmison and Flintoff with Monty as the spinner (look don't ask me to go into the 4-5 bowler issue we simply don't have the batting at the mo) no-one is breaking down doors to replace any one of them, not even Stuart Broad at the moment.
It does seem a bit pointless Hussey rating England's bowling attack from 2005 as better than the current Indian bowling attack, when that 2005 England bowling attack seems unlikely to be seen again. In the 2005 Ashes series Flintoff and Jones were England's best bowlers but it is unlikely they will ever return to that sort of form, if they ever return at all. Hoggard & Harmison are still around but have also been struggling with injury/form lately and there don't appear too many other quality bowlers around to replace them, let alone Flintoff or Jones.

India's current pace bowling stocks appear to be a lot more healthy than England's current bowling stocks, with the likes of Khan, Singh, Sreesanth, Sharma and Pathan to choose from. Not to mention the fact that India's spin bowling, with both Kumble and Harbhajan, is also stronger than England's with just Panesar.

I'm certainly not gonna dispute that either. The only issue I have with India's bowlers in the recent past is that they have started off well and then disappeared for a couple of years or forever. Zaheer started off very well and then tailed off for a while, Nehra the same and he's never come back, Munaf has done likewise as well to an extent. It does seem they have had an issue of fitness and conditioning and I hope that they look after Sharma well, with more strength and stamina its pretty obvious he could be very dangerous indeed.

Top 5 bowling averages of bowlers still playing. Only Bond and Murali have the best averages in both forms of the game.

Tests
21.77 - Murali
21.88 - Clark (unlikely to keep his place in ODIs with Bracken, Tait, Lee and Johnson)
22.39 - Bond (could still play international cricket)
23.13 - Asif (unlikely to bring his ODI bowling averages of 36.38 down, more suited to the longer game)
23.31 - Steyn (should be able to bring his ODI average of 30.92 down in the next couple of years)

ODIs
19.32 - Bond
22.68 - Murali
22.83 - Lee (still has time to get his Test average of 29.97 down)
22.86- Bracken (unlikely to play Test cricket)
23.20 - Akhtar (if he actually played he could get his Test average down from 25.69)

You are joking about Harmison against the Windies, aren't you? A generous assessment would describe him as a curate's egg in that series. I think he was far better against Sri Lanka and certainly vastly better in context, given how badly the other bowlers fared, even if his average was a touch worse than in the Windies series.

I presume the purpose of this exercise is to show that Anderson appears in only one category and he isn't even the "top" in that one.
