who is the best fast baller...and which is the best team..

I think a lot of other teams have the potential of becoming the strongest ones, especially all the Asian ones, but they just lag because of lack of professionalism or politics. Consequently, Aussies are the best. But I won't say Mcgrath is the finest bowler. He sure could be the most disciplined and leading wicket-taker nowadays but that's all because of discipline as well. I don't think he has a lot of talent in him. About the best bowler, I'll have to say I think it's Shoaib Akhtar, and not just because I'm a Pakistani or he's the fastest. It's about the range of deliveries he can bowl. He's indisciplined, in and out of scandals, been often treated unfairly by the team management, but if he were dealt with cleverly, I'm sure he would be the best one. However he is, the expression on the batsman's face when he comes in will alone tell you he's being hated and feared...and that's what I love about him.

I would say Autralia is the best team as of today. they are really performing very good and recently they won the Ashes Series against England as with 5-0 which is after 86 years. their bowling and batting strength are in prefect balance. And of course at this time Glenn McGrath of Australia is the best fast bowller.
