Best Spin Bowlers of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Hedley 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.

42 Danish Kaneria (Pakistan) V 1 Comment
43 Abdur Rehman (Pakistan)
44 Brad 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!

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

47 Parvez Rasool (India) V 2 Comments
48 Rangana Herath (Sri Lanka)
49 AB de Villiers (South Africa)

He is a good batsmen but not a good bowler

51 Arthur 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.

52 Mitchell Santner Mitchell Santner

Very dangerous spin bowler. Along with Luke Ronchi as wicketkeeper, he's extremely deadly. New Zealand definitely have the best spin bowling attack.

53 Murali Karthik (India) V 2 Comments
54 Sunil 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.

55 Arihant Shekhawat (India)
56 Fred Titmus (England)
57 JP Duminy (South Africa)

Duminy competitive hatrick in cricket World Cup against Sri Lanka

58 Samuel Badree (West Indies)

He is better than Sunil Narine and Nathan Lyon - Adron


59 Ish Sodhi

Definitely one of the reasons why New Zealand have the best spin bowling attack. The T20 World Cup 2016 clearly shows this

60 Roelof van der Merwe (South Africa)
