    Amla is a good shout.

    Overall I'd give it to KP, form slump or not. You don't handle Warne or Murali like he did without being brilliant against spin.

    Well, while KP has done very well against Warne and Murali relatively, he has his weaknesses. KP vs. Warne was actually a very even contest, sometimes KP got stuck into him, on other occasions Warne dismissed him cheaply at crucial times. Also Migara will tell you that Murali was able to work out KP and get him out when England toured SL.

    Also, it's hard to call KP the best player of spin when he has a proven weakness against SLA's (Waterboy ) and often throws his wicket away to innocuous looking spinners like Benn, Hauritz and Harris.

    Waterboy vs. KP - the greatest rivalry of all time.

    KP is a good player of spin without doubt but Clarke is better imo-just that much more assured with his footwork and shot selection.

    Strauss is an underrated shout as well. 3 centuries in India.

    When you say best player of spin, surely you are talking about batting againts quality spin?.

    KP has weakness againts SLA's yes. But in general him getting out to those joke spinner is more due to his stupidy that the spinners, rather than anything special from them. So i dont take that seriously at all.

    I hate breaking this to you but the scoreboard takes Kp's stupidity rather seriously...whether or not you do is irrelevant.

    Heh. Getting out is getting out, be it by your own stupidity or by a ball that's turned 45 degree and beaten a perfect forward defensive.
