Because they always had one or two seamers who could take 350 wickets, and few others who were in form. Secondly they are not renowned to produce dustbowls as India. Pakistan is notorious to prepare roads, and when they had one or two seamers who were running hot, with reverse swing they managed to win even on roads. So it is not a very receptive place for spin other than in few places. Only one Pakistani spinner averages < 25 in Pakistan (East or West) + UAE. Note Warne and Pervez Sajjad. Warne had a nice time in UAE.why have pakistan never had a spinner take 400 test wickets it bizarre stat
Saw this too initially and was impressedAlso well done on omitting Ajmal.
Do you actually believe thisQadir is an all time great, Saqlain, Mushy and Saeed in there too. Sad how Ajmal is viewed by posters on here when a lot of that chucking issue was out of his control and just 5 or 6 years earlier he would have been cleared same as Akhtar or Murali.
Wow, really had an awful career outside that didn’t he?Mushtaq Ahmed had a peak of 19 tests between 95 and 98 in which he took 112 wickets @23, despite playing with Wasim and Waqar that time. He took 3 tenfers and all 10 fifers of his career in that period, including matchwinning fifers in Australia, NZ, England and SA. Outside of perhaps Murali, the best peak of any subcontinent spinner. Severely underrated he was.
