    I never saw Kapil. Kumble easily the best I saw, but my dad believes Kapil was better.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Hi. I came to Bombay recently for a business trip. Will try and catch up with you next time I am there. Also, always a pleasure reading your posts. Your posting has improved tremendously over the past couple of years (if that's possible! )

    Kumble was crap outside the subcontinent in tests till very late in his career. Kapil slogged it out in India and abroad. Both were tremendous fighters. I did see Kapil bowl 1991-1994 and he always played with his heart on his sleeve. I have rarely seen such committment from a player. I give to Kapil between the two.

    But over all, I think Md. Nissar is the best Indian bowler. The more I think of it, the more I think it to be true.

    Chandra for me - a genuinely unique bowler - just shades it from Bedi and Prasanna as without Chandra the wins over England in 71 and again in 72/73 wouldn't have happened
