Is Daniel Vettori the best Left Arm Orhtodox spinner ever?

In today’s game of Cricket, I think we are missing Quality left arm bowlers.Left arm orthodox bowlers gets a lot of drift and spin and it’s wonderful to watch them bowl.
We are missing this traditional old style of bowling and very few rarely bowls well the left arm orthodox. The two guys who comes to my mind as really good currently are Daniel Vettori and Shakib al Hasan.
Especially Daniel Vettori I think bowls pretty well and uses conditions and gets a lot of drift.How many of you agree with it?
Is he the best of this style of bowling ever,with regards to consistency?
sorry.It’s Orthodox.

Chosen Answer:

Yes, because he is more known for his flight. His bowling varies and really hard to predict as it spins a lot.
This is one of the reasons why he got so many wickets. His bowl turns sharply and after bouncing and that lacks in other bowlers. As he is playing for 12 years he has got more variations than we can imagine. Just like Kumble, if you hit him twice for six then next ball will get wicket, same with Vettori.

As he uses fingers he can get dot balls in test matches and frustrate the batsmen, as later goes for big shots he gets out. You remember Kamran Amal’s dismissal in first test this year?

Zimbabwe’s Ray Price and I guess Shakib Al Hasan do the same kind of bowling. Indians might be knwoing Murali Karthik (that style guy, KKR, he does same bowling)

And also most bowlers are right handed so easy to predict but Dan is lefty so after Chaminda Vaas of SL, he is highest wicket taker as well.

In current scenario if Shakib Al hasan plays like for 12 years or more and gets more matches then he can also bowl like Dan, others that can do so are Monty Panesar but he plays too less, Jayasurya (about to retire), Rangana Herath, Paul Harris.

Do you agree with the British media and a few?

of their fans?
Recently I read many pieces claiming Swan to be the best spinner in the world? Is he better than Vettori or Bhajji or Ramdev? (I am not sure whether Murali is still playing tests)

Chosen Answer:

There is a saying: Where there is no sugar, even neem flower can be sweet.
This is not something new. Before Swann, even Monty was acclaimed as the best!
Swann, no doubt is one of the best England has produced of recent times. But on quality rating he will not come anywhere near Harbhajan or Vettori.
Of course he is an intelligent learner and a decent lat order batsman.

Murali is way below his best,yet he is way better than the rest,isnt it amazing.?

The greatest bowler in the history of cricket once more proved that in ipl he is still the no 1,and will be the world no 1 till he retires.

funny some users when,murali went through a little rough period,started celebrating & said that Harbajan & Vettori are the best spinners now,LOL

Chosen Answer:

IPL 3 would be remembered for all the super-stars, over 35 years old, be it in batting, where Sachin is leading the way, along with M.Hayden, A.Gilchrist and in bowling dept, fittingly the no.1, Murli, you can’t replace class & he is a class act, along with Vaas, doing wonders in the bowling dept.

One thing is sure, no one would celebrate in this part of the world, when Murli retires or goes below par, as he is a joy to watch, with regards to another off spinner, no , who ever it is, can’t replace Murli, till he takes more wickets than him & Vettori, at present, rightly called the best, in left arm bowling dept, which doesn’t necessarily makes him,overall, best spinner, until Murli is there!!!!!

Swann has got loads of wkts in 2009, even more than Vettori; is he the best spinner around in the world today?

Somehow, I don’t feel that way. What’s your view?

Chosen Answer:

Graeme Swann has a fantastic record and he deserves his spot as the top spinner of 2009 especially when he has played on wickets in the West Indies, England and South Africa which are not known for their assistance to spinners. His major advantage is his ability to bowl at any pace and still get spin and this makes his arm ball much more effective. I would not yet say he is better than Vettori but I can’t think of many other spinners who are as good at the moment. I think if he has a good 2010 then he may well be considered the top spinner in the world.
