Marc's ratings part 6 - spin bowling
Next in line is the quality of spinners, from best to worst I rank them as follows:
Somerset - A 3 prong attack spearheaded by Warne and containing the relatively unreadable Mendis is the strongest spin team for me.
Himannv - The only other team with more than 1 frontline spinner, and with Murali backed up by a more than capable Shakib, that puts this team as next best for me.
Pskov - As we're now comparing single spinners I had to rank them directly - Saqlain's formidable record puts him 3rd.
Cevno - Qadir strikes me as more of a wicket-taking bowler than a container, and I prefer that sort of bowler.
weldone - Kumble falls down for his relative lack of wickets, hence in the middle of the pack for me.
Noble One - If treated as what he should be thought of, Afridi would probably get more respect from the general cricket public. His batting seems to stop that happening though.
Pothas - Hogg was surprisingly effective for one reason or another, more than likely owing to the team he played in.
Blakus - The cult of Swanneh isn't enough for him to seriously challenge others in this draft, yet.
honestbharani - Price doesn't concede many runs, but then again he doesn't get many wickets.
G.I.Joe - In the absence of any other realistic options, I've called Harris a spinner, and also the worst one almost by default.
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
