Unarguably the best side since the turn of the century, Australia dominated the world riding on the sterling performances delivered by their bowlers. The bowling pairs of Lillee-Thomson and McGrath-Warne pulverized batsmen from all nations and allowed Australia to stamp their supremacy.

Over the years, the nation has produced several incredible bowlers who have left their mark with their sensational bowling. But who among them are Australia's best bowlers?

Here, we look at the top ten bowlers produced by Australia.

#10. Nathan Lyon

Lyon's journey has been anything but a cakewalk

Australia's most successful spin bowler after Shane Warne, Nathan Lyon has gone through a massive transformation in the last few years. From being an Adelaide Oval groundstaff in 2010, he has become an essential member of Australia's Test team in 2017.

However, the journey has been anything but a cakewalk.

In 2011, Lyon broke into the national team as a spinner who could bowl few overs to boost the over rate and allow the pacers to rest before the new ball is available. But, the 29-year-old improved significantly and became a force to reckon with.

His recent heroics in the Asian conditions has made him one of Australia's best spinners ever and with a tally of 269 wickets in 69 Tests at an average of 31.83, the off-spinner has inked his name in the history books.
