Are you trying to tell me that someone with a 41.52 bowling average is ranked at 26? This just proves that the voters know zero about Cricket, wake up to yourselves and recognize the greats of the game before these drop kicks.

He is a great dedicated player with very good bowling skills.

He is an inspiration for his country and cricket.

He is a magical bowler.

Arguably, the best fast bowler India ever had. He was a real master of swing bowling. Controlled line and length with banana swing kept the batsman guessing.

The Highest run scorer against Zimbabwe, 179 Not Out Against Zimbabwe and made india win, so this is the best batsmen list right?

Best fast bowler India has ever produced.

39James Anderson

He is the best English bowler of his generation.
He can swing it both ways,he is dangerous on any surface now and he proves all the time.
On his day he is unplayable.
A great team man and s good leader of the pack.
Love him.

I am not satisfied by this rank jimy shuld be after w.akram he is now 3rd most wicket taker fast bowler in test by taking 454 wicket in 116 matches I think v less matches then other and hopefully he wil be nbr one test fast bowler

James Andeson is next Akram.Today's king of swing.Nobody wants to face him.Always under pressure when facing him.England are a junkyard team without Anderson.He rules England cricket.

40Mohammad Asif

England and India together ruined his career. otherwise we found our mc'grath in him.
