But there's no doubt that, Abdul Qadir aside, Warne was the first "standard" wristspinner of any note to emerge (ie, start performing, rather than simply be picked - plenty of rubbish wristspinners had played for Australia in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s) for a long while - he emerged before Mushtaq Ahmed, and who knows, had he not done so maybe Mushtaq would not even have had the glory days he had. Murali emerged soon after them, and wristspin had its most vibrant days since the times of Grimmett and O'Reilly. And probably its most vibrant days for a long time to come, too. I'll be truly amazed if there are any Warne-calibre wristspinners again any time soon. And certainly I don't see there being another Murali, possibly ever, and bowlers like Kumble are very rare too.
