    The Greatest Leg-Spinner of Them All?

    The Greatest Leg-Spinner of Them All?

    Abdul Qadir might not be the obvious answer to that thorny question, but Martin finds some support for that view from a source it is impossible to dismiss out of hand.

    Excellent read as always Fred.

    I have never seen Qadir live myself so it was nice to read about him from someone who has.

    In an interview once, Qadir mentioned that his action was described by a female fan as similar to that of a ballerina (maybe he was praising himself ).

    Nice article again Fred. Big call from Dickie though I'd respectfully disagree. Kind of simialr to bodyline umpire G Hele who rated Neville Quinn the best left arm pace man he saw even after witnessing Davidson. (he never saw Akram). Again I'd disagree but it shows that those who saw them up close and know a thing or 2 rate them so highly.

    Fairly obvious I think. Imraan Tahir followed closely by Paul Adams.

    If we are going to be SA focused can we at least mention Volger, Faulkner er al?
