Verity's not really an allrounder though.
Actually, if you think about it - 150 years of Test match cricket has not revealed a single spin bowler who is in the same match-winning class as an Imran, Hadlee or Botham. That is, a bowler like Jim Laker who can also rattle off a century against a good attack.
(Note: Wilfred Rhodes was not a true allrounder in that he rarely batted and bowled to his full capability in the same match)
