Top Cricket Bowlers of all Time
71 Test matches; 259 wickets; 26.13 average; 7 37 BBI; 54.9 strike rate
Jason Gillespie follows after a successful career in which he managed to make himself one of Australias top fast bowlers.
Alongside Glenn McGrath, he terrorised batsmen all over the world with his combination of pace and swing.
He may have had an even greater impact had it not been for a number of injuries, but he still did well to take over 250 wickets.
Gillespies strike rate could have been even higher, had more of the plays and misses that he forced been edged behind.
