Default West Indies Great Fast bowlers: If you had to pick 4 who would you pick?

Awhile ago cricinfo had their series where they went through some of the test teams and did their best XI. when it came time to pick the west indies bowling attack they decided that they'd take lance gibbs so they had a spinner which meant the greatest of all time WI attack that they picked only had 3 fast bowlers. that's a huge crime for a cricketing nation with such an incredible fast bowling history.

so here goes, i will list a substantial list and we then pick our best 4.

George Francis
Wes Hall
Charlie Griffith
Andy Roberts
Michael Holding
Colin Croft
Joel Garner
Malcolm Marshall
Courtney Walsh
Curtly Ambrose
Ian Bishop
Sylvester Clarke
Roy Gilchrist
Manny Martindale
Herman Griffith
Wayne Daniel
Franklyn Stephenson
Pattrick Patterson
Keith Boyce

also as an extra i'd like to hear peoples opinions on WI fast bowlers who were thought to have tremendous talent but never lived up to it e.g. jerome taylor, reon king, fidel edwards, franklyn rose, jermaine lawson.
All Time Test XI: 1 Hobbs 2 B.Richards 3 Bradman 4 Pollock 5 V.Richards 6 Sobers 7 Gilchrist 8 Miller 9 Procter 10 Marshall 11 Warne
