    Bob Barber only played two Tests against West Indies, but dismissed Garry Sobers twice with his part time leg spin - the sad stat is that with 42 he's England's second most successful leggie since the war (behind Doug Wright)

    Dibbly dobbly medium pieslingers often get Christened "partnership breakers". Craig McMillan had that kinda rep. Looking at the batsmen he dismissed (28 wickets in 55 tests, so v much a part-timer) his victims include both Waughs, Langer, Slater, Kallis, Andy Flower &, twice, Damien Martyn.

    Some quality batsmen seem to have issues with merde bowling seemingly.
    McMillan used to annoy them out. It certainly wasn't good bowling (though it was good tactics). He'd try bowling a whole over of bouncers/short balls, then an over trying to bowl as fast as he can (after each ball he'd look at the screen to check his speed and if he got a good number he'd point it out to his team mates).

    It depends how you define 'part-time' bowlers, but I'd like to nominate Don Bradman.

    He was dismissed 70 times in his Test career, and 11 of those dismissals were by genuine batsman who usually bat in the Top-6. This gives a percentage of 16, which I reckon is disproportionately high;

    Hammond = 3
    Hazare = 2
    Martin = 2
    Morkel = 1
    Phadkar = 1
    Edrich = 1
    Amarnath = 1
    TOTAL = 11

    (I can only assume that Bradman was either very tired, or perhaps 'having a go' when he got out to the above bowlers)

    Tbf Hammond took 83 test wickets at an average that Ishant Sharma would love to have and over 700 FC wickets so not sure he qualifies as a part timer.

    Steve Waugh used to reckon he had the wood on Carl Hooper. I recall him getting Lara out in 95 too, to a freakish catch by Boonie at short mid on.

    Yep, Key was the first name to come to mind for me as well.

    Sachin got out to Cronje quite frequently..If there is a vote, Bradman and Sachin might come 1 and 2 in this too..

    Hammond has over 700 FC wickets. He was a fine bowler in his own right.

    Was it Vaughan or Hussain that got dismissed by Jacques Rudolph in the 2003 series?

    Brian Lara dismissed by Zoe Goss.

    Good ball.

    I'd do her.
