    Best English spinner?

    Who do people think is the best current English spinner?

    I think Ashley Giles, although there are no world beating spinners in england.

    Brown and Keedy are probably more than a match for Giles but cannot bat.

    I'd like to know what you base Brown on:

    2004: 36 @ 42.30
    2003: 66 @ 23.71
    2002: 28 @ 40.64
    2001: 28 @ 50.25

    Has to be Giles, Keedy is over-rated and has had massive help from the pitches he plays on.
