Great Spin Bowling Combinations

Gajanayake

School Boy/Girl Captain
What do guys think are some of the finest spin duo's or trio's to have played in a test match ?

Some worthy ones off the top of my head to consider:
Valentine and Ramadhin
Bedi, Chandra and Prasanna
O'Reilly and Grimmett

Some modern ones...
McGill and Warne
Mushy and Saqlain
Kumble and Harbhajan

What about Ashley Mallett and Terry Jenner?
Often had to compete for the one spot, from memory. Especially when Lawry was captain did not seem to rate spin bowling at all :@

Warne and Harbhajan bowling to Cullinan and Ponting would be a sight to behold..

I'd go for 36 runs an over, and we'd still be the best spin partnership in history.

Although I figure I have a decent shot at Afridi as my sole wicket.

Hard to go past O'Reilly and Grimmett (from what I've read).
Laker and Wardle (bowlers with 2 of the lowest post-war bowling averages) played together in 17 tests.
