    Worst ever spinner to get 100 test wickets

    Ashley Giles comes to mind. Who else? Venkatpathy Raju? Paul Wiseman? You decide. Edit: Just checked that Raju has 93 and Wiseman 61 wickets in test matches.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    If you lower the mark to 98 test wickets, then surely Sanath Jayasuriya would be a worthy nomination.

    Still better than Harris. Was shocked to see that the useless **** had somehow managed to take 103 test scalps.

    Look at his face. There is no way he isn't the worst spinner of all time.

    I really don't agree at all.

    Anyway it was to be Hooper. No question.

    He actually averaged 24 against India. No doubt he was pretty average but what Ganguly could or couldn't do to him seems like a poor example...
