    Great Spin Bowling Combinations

    What do guys think are some of the finest spin duo's or trio's to have played in a test match ?

    Some worthy ones off the top of my head to consider:
    Valentine and Ramadhin
    Bedi, Chandra and Prasanna
    O'Reilly and Grimmett

    Some modern ones...
    McGill and Warne
    Mushy and Saqlain
    Kumble and Harbhajan

    Warne & May

    Often had to compete for the one spot, from memory. Especially when Lawry was captain did not seem to rate spin bowling at all
