He is a great bowler and young talent in the cricket history and I hope that he come back one day and prove every one that he is the best

Genius left arm fast bowler will be back one day

He isn't even that great? There's no way he is second - julian23

Can swing it with amazing pace, an absolute wonder of a bowler.

One of the worlds topest bowler who can bowl inswing as well as out swing perfectly

23 Mitchell Starc Mitchell Starc Mitchell Aaron Starc, is an Australian cricketer who currently plays first-class cricket for the New South Wales Blues.

He is a very fast bowler and deserves Ann award. I think there should be an award for best bowler in 2017

The best in the world at present and has done more than what others done in their entire carrier.

He has pace and has swing and is an amazing bowler

160 in a test match...

Please how can you not like him and his bowling home and dale steyn

His bowling speed one time 173kph in ipl 2013

He is best

Morne morkel before kapil dev and mortaza and CHRIS MORRRIS! HOW COME? ALL OF THEM ARE BETTER THAN THE DUMB MORKEL

25 Kapil Dev


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.

28 Mashrafe Mortaza

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.

Mashrafe is the best captain in the world.he is great a player,he always played for supporters to make them happy.he is a legend.

31 James 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.

32 Jeff Thomson

Can't believe he was left off the list. Fast, fast and then fast.

The fastest of them all

The most unplayable bowler on any wicket

33 Chaminda Vaas

I don't know why he is at the bottom of the list.. One of the greatest fast bowler of all times.

Most Success Opening Baller.

Very disciplined bowler.

Jealous Indians have pit him at the bottom of the list.No one will get a hattrick in first 3 balls in an innings.
