    Best international players against spin under 30 these days

    Its Kaneh isn't it?

    Huge innings in pretty much every sc country and also has done well in the West Indies a country where you won't do well these days if you can't do it against spin.

    Obviously rate the likes of Smith and Root quite highly, the latter who will be absolutely crucial when England touring UAE with Yasir Shah lurking.

    Sarfraz also mega gun against spinners as well.

    Any other huge omission?

    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

    Mathews is not bad either, but wait, how can you forget Chandimal?

    It's an irony that a nominee for best player in the world against spin can't get into the Indian team in the best of all spin conditions.

    I lnow Mathews and Chandimal had been playing spin well for SL, but the crown usually goes to Kaushal Silva, who is the best against spin in SL. Another potental test player Milinda Siriwardane (who played ODIs and T20s) is also damn good against spin. It's odd that Karunarathne, Mathews, Sanga and Chandimal all of them are better against pace than spin.

    So Sri Lanka's best player of spin is a legitimate wicket keeper, so they make him open the batting and then get their second best young batsman overall bat seven and keep wicket?

    How farcical.

    He's #BetterThanCowan at notching up Cowans (shameless promotion, I know), so there's certainly a strong logic to him opening. Such an underrated bat, is Silva.

    this Indian fan anti-Kohli sentiment growing on CW will not be forgotten by me. A plague on all your penises.

    Also Pujara is fair ugly. If he's coming in the team we need to bring back Jadeja to counter his ugliness with some delicious moustacheness.

    Among the emerging Big 4 Kane is the best player of spin by a shade though all of them are pretty good against it as one would expect. Among other bats Sarfraz is a gun Pujara looked outrageously good vs spin couple of seasons back then there is Angelo, Dhawan, Sarfraz Tom Latham and Shafiq who all have done well vs spin. Jury still out on Chandi has just played an ATG innings against a very good spin attack but at times he looked village vs Yasir.
