You know I now see the "chime in" part.
Did you edit the post.

Anyway without looking I say Murali or Warne.
I checked and Qmire is correct - Murali.

Nah, not Murali, Murali average was 22 odd, there are a few people who have taken over 200 test wickets with lower averages, easy hint, couple of them from the island of Barbados

We getting close, he's actually # 2 all time (200+ wickets), with this answer and the hint should be clear who's #1
