Top Cricket Bowlers of all Time
44 Test matches; 208 wickets; 29.02 average; 8 108 BBI; 54 strike rate
An Australian leg spinner, Stuart MacGill spent his career in the shadow of another notable leg spinner from the same country, Shane Warne.
However, in his rare opportunities on the field, MacGill showed he was a superb replacement who may have been first choice under different circumstances.
Prolific in state cricket, he was unfortunate to spend much of his time behind Warne, especially as he generated incredible turn on even the most placid pitches.
A strike rate of 54 is incredibly healthy for a man long regarded as a reserve.
