Default Who is the best spinner in the world right now?

all of the greats from the past generation have now retired from international cricket (some still play IPL but it's not playing for your country), so i ask the question who is the best spinner right now?

sunil narine has made a huge impact recently but he's yet to play test cricket.

shillingford may have a poor overall record but has done well in the recent series at home against the aussies.

bishoo although being dropped from the WI squad was one of the most promising from last year.

ajmal takes non-stop wickets

rehman i believe is underrated, he's not noticed because of ajmal but he's doing really well.

australia has lyon and beer.....

south africa have tahir

sri lanka have herath, randiv, prasanna and mendis

england have swann

NZ have vettori

india have harbhajan and ashwin

zimbabwe still have price, cremer

and Bangladesh has shakib, elias and razzak

i have to say right now, despite narine not having played test cricket he is the best right now. ajmal, swann and rehman are right behind him.

Hmm...in my opinion...it's Graeme Swann at the moment...

When it comes to all-time best...it's Saqlain Mushtaq...the guy who invented "doosra"

i reckon it's between narine, swann and ajmal. i can see why people leave out narine because he hasn't been here for a long enough period plus hasn't even played test cricket. tough call between swann and ajmal for. ajmal has a better average, more wickets per match and better econ but swann has played double the matches and has a better strike rate and his wickets to match ratio albeit lower is still impressive.

Wat about our very own Shakib?

Not too long ago Razzak was classed as the best spinner in the world as well (according to icc rankings)

yeah in one-dayers razzak has been really really effective. shakib is up there but swann and ajmal have better numbers and narine is running through batting line-ups atm so it's hard to compete with that.

IMO, it is Ajmal at the moment. Though I believe, with experience, Narine will become one of the top very soon, if not the best.

Swann and Shakib.

I dont count Ajmal as a spinner, he's a chucker, so is Hafiz.

Swann. Could've been Ajmal, but his action sets him back IMHO. Shakib would've been up there had he managed a better strike rate. He should be a bit more aggressive.

It's too early to judge Narine. Let's hope he doesn't go the Mendis way.

Dan Vettori is the best defensive spinner in world cricket. So, I would say he's the best in T20s right now.

Narine has a good prospect...

And all of them are offie.. Murali is offie too..

I can't think of any deadly SLA.. but among the SLAs Vettori and Shakib are the best..

Swann was absolutely brilliant in the recent SL series. I don't know when was the last time that an English spinner was able to produce such turn and bounce and make the batsmen so uncomfortable in SL! He's a very clever bowler too but I don't know how he would do if he wasn't backed up by such a competent English Test team - their fast bowlers are in peak form now and they have some decent fielders too.

At one point in time, it was reckoned that Ajmal was unplayable but it is clear that is not the case. He is still very effective though, in both attacking and defending and has more variations than Swann, so I may pick him in an ODI team over Swann.

Narine is the new hot commodity in the spin bowling market. Batsmen still look like deer caught in headlights when trying to read him. As others have said, let's see if he goes the same way as Mendis.

Afridi is also an incredibly effective ODI and T20 bowler. I think he would get selected in quite a few teams over better spinners because of the combination of attacking spin bowling, fielding and (hit or miss) batting.

Swann..Cant judge Narine yet because he didnt play any test so far. Dont wanna judge him based on T-20

I had high expectations on Mendis. He is nowhere to be found

Bishoo would have come good for windies but now he has competition with Shilingford and Narine.

As for who is the best, my vote goes to Swann.

Narine is the best spinner of the world???

He might be the best spinner in T20 (so far, based on IPL performance), but no way he is near best as world beater.

At the moment, Ajmal is the best IMHO.

Bishoo is really young and he did quite well against the Aussies in the match he played. (He actually did better against us in the Test match series than Ajmal did!)

It's interesting to see how the Windies have heated competition for the top spinner spot while their fast bowling choices are not as strong. How times change!

Yup. Time has changed..Today's WI young generation is more interested in Basketball and Football . They find Cricket very boring. Thats why we havent seen a formidable WI pace attack for a long time. I miss that old WI

that comment is in relation to shakib being the best spinner in the world right now, my point was that shakib is a really good spinner but atm there are better ones out their.

yes that on turned big time...but it was a stock delivery for Shakib, Narine one was the wrong one...turning away from the right hander... I think eing an allrounder Shak cant concentrate on both properly...his bowling needs some more variations.
