Team of the decade pick your 3 fast bowlers.

Probably go for steyn, Anderson and rabada but very tough to pick, been a decade of fast bowling really.

Obviously Steyn and Jimmy. Went for Broad as well. Nearly 400 wickets, and perhaps the best spell of the decade.

Jimmy and Steyn as well.

Third pick is harder. Best spell of the decade (Broad?). Best series (Johnson)? Most consistent (Philander, probably). Cummins has been bloody phenomenal the last two years, why isn't he on the shortlist?

I went Philander for my third pick.

Extremely tough decision but went for Broad, Steyn and Boult

Who would you like to face the least- Mitch1.

Anderson would be a cert if playing in the UK, but that's the problem. You might say the same about Mitch1 in Australia, but he gets a special pass because of how lethal he was in the Mitchwash. He was like a West Indies bowler of the 70/80s.

Steyn is an all time great.

I think my other pick might be Asif, but he's not there. So I'll go for the underrated Big Vern.

Actually, would have gone for Ryan Harris.

Probably because his career this decade lasted until August 2010 (7 tests), at which point he was banned for cheating...

Obviously Steyn and Santiago, but for the brutal way he utterly dismantled England in 2013/14 I went with the Tash. Mercurial he may have been, but if that player of the series performance wasn't the finest spell of fast bowling in decades, maybe even ever, then I'll eat my hat

Was Kallis in the selection choices?
Sports broadcasting media nut miscast as a hard-working family man. Or should that be the other way around?
