Top Ten Bowlers in Cricket History
The Top Ten
Wasim Akram is the king of swing and he is a superb bowler and has also taken hatriks he has also got his name on number 1 in the top 10
Wasim Akram and quick and was a master in swing and seam. Although subcontinental pitch does not supports the fast bowling, Wasim Akram mangaed to move ball in both ways and took more than 900 wickets. "Sultan of Swing" took over 400 Test wickets, and holds the record for amount of wickets in ODIs (502) and List A cricket (881). An average of 23.62 in Test matches from 104 appearances is an impressive one. He is only one of three bowlers to record two hat-tricks in Test cricket, and only one of three to have achieved the same feat in ODI cricket.
Tops in tests and ODI alike, rated him a touch ahead of Mc Grath and Warne, who come a not so distant second and third in my book
He is very good in bowlingV 455 Comments
Shane warne is my favourite bowler and player he is the king of spin I would say. He is a perfect example of a leg spin. The man with the title of doing the ball of the century is just unbelievable. But I wouldn't say that wasim akram is bad. He is the king of swing the ultimate paceman.
"He could bowl anything he wanted from a top spinner to a googly, conceding
The fact that he took hundreds of wickets, he thought about the batters
Techniques, then bowled using his intelligence, thought "I'm gonna bowl
A googly, bowled, and took a perfect wicket. "
Sir. Shane Warne is the best leg spinner bowler...
He had taken 700 wickets...
I like his bowling very much
Shane warne is the best bowler I ever seen he has various variations of legspiner he is best than wasim akram.shane should be on number one.V 200 Comments
Muralitharan is the best you can ever think of in this world. He is a legend thanks to Sri Lanka!
He is the best bowler in history I feel he should play in next icc world cup because he has taken over 600 wickets in history of cricket he bowls better than anyone else
You did not put put muttiah on first but at least put it on third. Why have you put that chucker harbhajan singh. Type on Google harbhajan singh chucks and you'll see that he really chucks, he's the biggest chucker in the history of cricket. I can't believe that he's still playing. That cheater. And somebody should know that muralitharan is not a fast bowler, Malinga is of course

Laugh out loud there is something wrong with the list! I am a Indian but have no problem in saying that what the hell harbhajan is doing up there? Oh come on just because he is Indian don't support him just for that sake! And yeah glenn mcgrath is simply the best! - rahulsharma1

I think he must stands for the 1st position. The reason for this is that he is brave in his technique of bowling, very athletic, superb run up, excellent command on swing, innovation in cricket such as waqar special & deadly swinging yorkers are the specialty. He is also the master of reverse swing. In your list none of the bowler have such capabilities. So it is requested consider him in your top ranking. I mean number 1.
In terms of deliveries bowled, he has taken the fastest 50, 300, 350 and 400 wickets in One Day International matches and the fastest 150, 200, 250, 300 and 350 wickets in Test matches
