41Hedley Verity (England)

Took 10 wickets TWICE in first class cricket, once for 10 runs, still a world record. Took just shy of 2000 1st class wickets at an average of under 15.

44Derek Underwood (England)

Way to low down the list for deadly. Totally unplayable on damp pitches

48Arthur Mailey

In the 4th Test against England (which included Rhodes, Hobbs, Hendren and Wooley) his figures were 47 overs 8 maidens 9 for 121 - that's in just the second innings, not the match. Better than Shane Warne ever achieved in a test innings.

51Brad Hogg (Australia)

This man should be number 1 - greatest spin bowler EVER! This list is a joke... Hogg definitely in top three! If not number 1!

52Sunil Joshi (Gadag, Karnataka, India)

Played for India... Probable the best left arm spinner the world has witnessed, but went out like a silent soldier... He had great variety... He's the highest wicket taker in Indian Domestic cricket... His bowling against South Africa 10-6-6-5 was the best by any spinner in ODI cricket history till date, considering the average.

Silent player in 90's.One of the best Indian left arm spinner to bowl in those era.

53Arihant Shekhawat (India)
54Rangana Herath (Sri Lanka)
55Fred Titmus (England)
56JP Duminy (South Africa)

Duminy competitive hatrick in cricket World Cup against Sri Lanka

57Samuel Badree (West Indies)
