i think its kumble is best spinner of world. as he bowled for team when he is not well and he bowled when he is with bandaid on heads and helped the team to gain victory. whenever he came back he is superb.

Well in the early days of spinnng cricket, India had most effective and best spinners out of which chandrasekhar(leg-spin) and prasanna(off-spin) were the best. But a bowler greatness should not be considered only by wickets taken. Currently we have 2 great spinners Shane Warne(leg-spin) and Muralidharan(off-spin). comparing there stats one its hard to draw a line between them. Some stats In a test match Murali gives 2.39 runs per over and takes a wicket every 55.37 balls giving 22.10 runs Warne concedes 2.64 runs per over and strikes every 57.30 balls giving 25.25 runs So maybe MURALIDARAN has a edge over being the best spinner in the world so far.

i think anil kumble is a versatile bowler who can bowl any given conditions... but he is not effective as shane warne.... so i think shane warne is the best spinner....comparing him with murlitharan would be harsh..both have got similar number of wickets... but he is off spinner in asian subcontinent so he gets help from spinning tracks in asia as off shane warne does not get that response in australian fast pitches
