Marshall: Was he the best paceman of all time

Malcolm Marshall is regarded as one of the finest pacemen ever to have played Test cricket and indeed some have suggested he was the finest of all. His Test bowling average of 20.94 is the best of anyone who has taken 200 or more wickets. He achieved his bowling success despite being by the standards of other fast bowlers a short man he stood only at 5'9". Marshall was also a very dangerous lowerorder batsman with ten Test fifties and a number of firstclass centuries to his credit.
