Srini have you seen him playing anywhere else other than WI? how is he like, up to all these hypes? I desperatly hope he is, as spin bowling is on a terminal decline for some time. Warne has retired, Anil and Murali are in the twilight of their careers. ones these champians are off, I don't know where to look forward to. Harbhajan Singh and Danish Kaneria, the 2 likely upholders of the tradition has rather left one with that sense of nothingness. Daniel Vittori is the best left-armer in the world at the moment, but nowhere near the 'trinity'. Mcgill is almost finished, and not many are coming up from Warny's land to take over. Monty Panesar has proved he needs to go a very long way, and ones Adil Rashid is ready to take over........?
spin bowling is in crisis, and one can only wish this man, who gave the WI batters all sortes of trouble is here to stay, and has powerful sholders to carry forward, a rich legacy.
