    Except the difference between McGill and kumble is that the only thing McGill can do is spin the ball a mile and half and the only thing Kumble can't do is spin the ball a mile and half !

    Slats does have a very valid point and IMO looking @ the stats Mcgill does look the better bowler of the two. Yes he may bowl more bad balls than Kumble, but that's not the point, the point is he has a better record than Kumble in almost every category.

    And he also has a better support cast, Sanz. Look at his figures when he doesnt have Warne at the other end.

    It's getting very old and painful every time we say something that we get labelled as being biased. Averages point to McGill being a more superior bowler yet some of you base your opinions solely on the strength of your emotions and claim that he can't be in the same class as kumble...
    The main point where people started claiming you were biased was, whilst I don't believe it true, its not that ridiculous for someone to believe MacGill is the better spinner than Kumble. But you claimed MacGill was also better than Murali, and hence the second best spinner in the world. That's simply not true, and only bias can make you believe that because all your statistics wouldn't be able to prove MacGill is even in the same league as Murali.

    And since you're so strong on statstics, doesn't Murali have a better strike rate than Warne as well? Average too? Yet I know you wouldn't say he's better than Warne, so why does MacGill get off lightly when he has inferior stats?

    imho murali is equal to shane warne. the only reasons stats have been included here is because you guys all found it so laughable when i suggested mcgill could conceivably be in the same league/better than kumble!!!

    In my opinion McGill is better than Kumble, but if you think otherwise then it's ok. i don't really mind, he's a pretty good bowler. but to laugh at the suggestion like some of you did that mcgill is in the same class is just plain ignorant and single minded, and the purpose of this argument of including statistics was to show that mcgill has a valid case of being considered equal to kumble.

    I hope Kumble passes the 500 wicket mark in the Pakistan series. You'd think if India are going to do well against Pakistan, Kumble will pick up at least 5 wickets per match, so its definitely on the cards.

    I am sorry. I missed mentioning that this is the list of bowlers who have played a hundred tests and their wickets tally at the end of the 100th test.

    Mcgill is flattered by playing most of his tests on flattering wickets, without having to toil away in difficult spinning conditions, plus its easier to have a better record with a low amount of games.
    Kumble is one of the best bowlers of all time and is lethal when on song. He is way above Mcgill.

    Despite his record showing he has played numerous times at the GABBA, MCG and a long tour in the Windies and Pakistan... none of which can be described as overly spin "flattering wickets" surely.

    Your argument about him having played a low amount of games is viable if the amount is less than say for arguments sake 10 (also think about it... it's easier to have a higher record with a high amount of games). However McGill's career has included 36 matches, which is easily enough to provide a true representation of his skills.
