Graeme Smith is their best spinner.
DoG's exercise has made me take another look at the Pakitani batting line up, and while it still isn't in the same class the West Indies and Australia they are better than I though and even though I still have them 5th, they are much closer to England and separated them selves from the teams below them.
Simpson^ | Hayden | Bradman | Chappell^ | Ponting | Border* | Gilchrist+ | Davidson3 | Warne4^ | Lillee1 | McGrath2
Greenidge | Hunte | Richards^ | Headley* | Lara^ | Sobers5^ | Walcott+ | Marshall1 | Ambrose2 | Holding3 | Garner4

Hobbs | Hutton*^ | Hammond^ | Compton | Barrington | Botham5^ | Knott | Trueman1 | Laker4 | Larwood2 | Barnes3
yeah the likes of MoYo and YK have finished much higher than I thought they would which I guess helps the batting depth. Although there is no way I would put inzy above the likes of Miandad.
If you had watched Saeed Anwar bat you wouldn't be saying that.
I actually did, obviously only when he played againts us, but for me he never really stood out in my memory.

Haha, Bradman was not conservative. He famously didn't hit the ball in the air but he was still a very attacking strokemaker; not hitting sixes doesn't change that.
