    This is nothing new. He's had the MacGill debate with almost every member of the forum who posts in Cricket Chat has over 5,000 posts. I think he's had it with about three different versions of me across time - I managed to get him to stalemate last time. Never going there again and I advise you now to stop being it consumes you.

    Hope he has more success than that Tariq Mahmood fellow.

    Double-jointed wrist (the first requirement to bowl like Murali) and good accuracy would be an exceptionally rare combination. It's surprising enough that Murali managed it - someone else doing so barely as Murali retires would be truly astonishing.
    I'm not sure about the physical credentials, but I've seen Parmar bowl a tad and the similarity to Muralitharan is uncanny.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    If the BCCI can protect Parmar from the dubious actions panel or whatever he can be top top class. Kid is a freak of nature.

    Ind33d. Can't remember said stalemate though TBH, must've been a while ago.

    Off all Australia's leg spinners who have taken over 200 Test wickets, I'm fairly certain MacGill managed it quicker than anyone else.
    MacGill's capability with the ball has been vastly overestimated due to the incorrect supposition that Bangladesh (and ICC World XI) matches are worthy of Test status.

    MacGill has only ever been good for the occasional good Test here and there, and has often only played such a thing due to Warne's presence. MacGill is and always was a pretty average bowler, though clearly above the norm in terms of wristspin. But had he been born elsewhere he'd have had a decidedly moderate Test career, IMO.

    Ojha's a good bowler - is accurate, gets good bounce and has nice variations in flight and pace - being a fingerspinner his impact in test cricket will be less than a good wristspinner but I think he will be useful enough in the right circumstances.
    I definitely would like to see him partner Harbhajan in the ODi's though - think they could form a formidable combination
    .

    Never seen Parmar - will be interesting to see what the ICC do about his action if he does get picked for India though.

    Chawla - still a work in progress IMO. Needs to work on his leg break and utilising his variations better - think he bowls his googly far too often.

    Mishra - Looks decent but its early days yet. I hope he doesn't go down the Sivaramakrishnan/ Hirwani route.
    Doesn't get the bounce Kumble does but does turn the ball a lot more.
    Definitely looks the best test match prospect of the lot at this stage though and the guy most likely to replace Kumble.

    Goes without saying. Think he was left out as it would have rendered the thread pointless. Plus he's the only one out of the lot who wouldn't be eligible for India.

Mishra's jaffas seemed to dry up today when Clarke and Haddin went after him, so that's not a good omen, but on the other hand his superb IPL performances don't suggest a personality that's easily fazed.

    The hard bit for both comes after the initial honeymoon period, when they've been figured out a lot better than they are now. As it is, they're both excellent prospects, but Mishra is a lot closer to the finished article than Chawla IMO.
    I will have to disagree with that statement.
    Mishra spins it more than chawla but chawla has better control.
    I have been saying for long that mishra is a better Test bowler than chawla ,but i still tink they will be almost equal in ODI's and t20's.

    Mishra is a more aggressive bowler, flights more and turns his leg break much more. Chawla is steady, does not turn his leg break too much, flights less. I would like to think Mishra will do better in Tests and Chawla in ODI's.

    Haven't seen enough of Parmar to comment on the other comparison.

    Ah, fair enough, I'm only making statements based on what i've seen- in none of the matches i've watched them in has Mishra sprayed the ball whatsoever, whereas i've seen Chawla do so occasionally. Small details like that i can't be sure of, but i've certainly thought Mishra looks much more the part than Chawla does.

    SJS, Didnt the ICC panel study his action and said OK?

    I think Chawla too must be given a go int he longer version. ODIs are stupid to evaluate a leggie, esp a budding one, because he'll be trying to keep his eco. rate under 6. Not that Chawla did a bad job in England ODIs though.
