Everyone wants to change the world, noone wants to change himself.
Where's the option in between "a great" and "there are better spinners for England" because that would be my choice

An excellent fingerspinner. Simple as. No more, no less. No superman, and no wristspinner.
Performs very well within his own limitations.

A good player, and has improved his batting and fielding, could well turn into the best finger spinner in the world
You know it makes sense.
Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
None of the poll options really seem to fit.
Anyway, Monty is a bit of a tweener but that may be to his advantage.
He is somewhere between the flat grinders of Giles and Boje and the artists such as Tufnell and Raju. That may mean he is more balanced and will have a good career but only time will tell.
The problem with Monty is that it is hard to seperate and analyse his bowling when all the other stuff like the goofy celebrations and the terrible fielding and cult personality plays such a big role in defining him as a cricketer.
He has certainly done little wrong with the ball so far and looks to have at least a decent career ahead of him.
My only issue (as Ive said before) with his bowling is that he gets cut far too often for a LA spinner. His line is pretty good but his length to a little too variable to be classed as top bracket just yet.
If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there will be edits
