I myself took it for granted, but now i find that the last decade was for spinners what the 70-80s were for fast bowlers, i.e. a time when 3-4 all time greats were plying their trades at the same time.

We had Warne, Kumble and to a lesser extent Mushtaq for leggies
Murali, Saqlain for off spinners. (Bhajji a class below them)

None of the spinners today are a patch on those 5
Statistically speaking all of those guys are a bit over-rated apart from Warne and Murali, no?
