Some info on Malcolm Marshall:
Tests: 81 Wickets: 376 Average: 20.94 Strike Rate: 46.7
5 W/I : 22
10 W/M : 4
1. He still tops in 'Average' among all kinds of bowlers (fast and spin) who have played at least 50 tests.
2. His worst average based on countries is 25 - against NZ (he only played 3 tests).
3. When Viv Richards was asked whom he considered the best bowler, his reply was "Maco. He had everything."
4. He bowled very fast, low (hardly ever over the shoulder, so batsmen couldn't avoid his balls), and could swing both ways.
5. Wisden's selection of an all-time World XI: Hobbs, Grace, Bradman, Tendulkar, Viv Richards, Sobers, Knott, Akram, Marshall, Warne, Barnes - yes, Wasim Akram would be the closest competitor.
