Played all his tests in Australia on roads where his job was to keep down runs and build pressure. If he toured England he'd have become legend as Hendren infers.
Nathan Lyon, closely followed by Brad Hodge.

Honestly, Bruce Yardley was pretty darn good. I'd say he would be close to our best ever finger spinner, maybe Mallet #1, I thought Colin miller was fabulous , put him at #3.
If Trumble qualifies as I believe he does then he's no.1. Ironmonger next followed by Mallet then Giffen. Yardley was good value and Ian Johnson was passable. That's about it though.
The fact we have produced so few really good finger spinners yet have dominated cricket for such extended periods really does go to show what an utterly rank and irrelevant discipline of the game it is.
