“I'm writing a book on magic”, I explain, and I'm asked, “Real magic?” By real magic people mean miracles, thaumaturgical acts, and supernatural powers. “No”, I answer: “Conjuring tricks, not real magic”. Real magic, in other words, refers to the magic that is not real, while the magic that is real, that can actually be done, is not real magic.”
― Lee Siegel, 'Net of Magic: Wonders and Deceptions in India'
Think more people would prefer to watch KP and A.B bat than Trott and Chanderpaul.

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.

This thread is a melting pot of awesome and its opposite.

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.

incidentally Wasim rates Viv as the best batsman he bowled to. In his playing days he thought it was Martin Crowe
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
