I am having trouble with the 4th.
Between Croft, Roberts, Garner, Walsh, Ambrose.

I'd take Walsh.
hall was a great bowler, interested why you rate him in your top 4? having continued my research and watched more footage, even though marshall is one of the best ever i don't see or hear of him getting as much bounce as some of the other WI greats and for me that's one of the best weapons a pacer can have, i reckon that's what often makes the difference between WI fast men and others is that they can get high sharp bounce out of nothing. even greats of other countries don't usually manage that but quite a few WI ones do.
