    First of all, it'd be good if you could change avatars please...

    India have the best one for mine, two spinners who you can generally rely on to lead attack, while Aus, IMO,only have one.

    Before the England v India series I would have said India (1), Australia = Sri Lanka (2),
    Pakistan =NZ (4).

    But Indian spinners failed to nail England at home while Murali has struggled to get wickets lately against quality opposition (forget cheap Bangla wickets).

    So Honestly I would say IMO

    1 Australia (Warne occasionally Macgill)
    2 England (Udal/Panesar) = India (Kumble/Bhaji)
    4 Sri Lanka (murali , yet to see Bandara in Tests get wickets)
    5 Pakistan = NZ

    hmm, mebbie kumble has struggled a bit, by his own high standards though, certainly wouldnt put udal and panesar anywhere near the skill India has at its disposal!

    Never been a McGill fan, so i'd be tempted to put India on top. But the quality of Warne (and especially comparing form) just shades it for Australia.

    I saw people put West Indies down the bottom and i instantly wondered what your reaction would've been. Took it quite calm actually....

    My God Jason, Udal plays one test match and Panesar plays 3, and now they're a better spin bowling attack then Kumble and Harbhajan? Did you see Kumble's figures for the series?

    Kumble by himself is a better spin attack then England's, and that's not necessary an insult on those two players, but just showing how good Kumble is.
