Best spinner of bast 25 years Kumble? He was consistent I'll give him that. Other was a quality spinner.
But no seriously Jack Hobbs is no.2 on reflection could have averaged more if he'd been less inclined to give his wicket to whomever he felt deserved it.
Kumble the best spinner of the past 25 years? Spare me. And hope that benchy doesn't see this.

Glad to know that you belive we had all of the best bowlers playing for the W.I, and certainly the greatest of all time certainly did, but he also had to play againts Imran, Hadlee, Lillee, Thompson, Chandrasakar, Bedi, Prasana, Snow, Underwood, Willis, Botham, Dev and Procter.
Then there was no bouncer rules and in the '70's everyone were over using them, and they were hardly any helmets before WSC, not that Viv even ever used an arm guard far less a helmet. He took them on and usually he won.
How many tests against procter?
