Even his average of 28+ is far from outstanding after having played 68 Tests. Venkatapathy Raju almost matches his numbers in 28 Tests (also left arm). Bishan is probably better remembered for his first class record (ave 21+ SR 57+). Posted by Surya Narayan on (October 2, 2014, 1:40 GMT) There were other great spinners in India who never played a test. Could we have a series on them too? Padmakar Shivalkar, Vijaykrishna, Hans come to mind immediately. Posted by Nampally on (October 1, 2014, 19:23 GMT) Prasanna was lucky to have played along side such great spinners as Chandra & Bedi. This spinner Trio was formidable combo for most countries to deal with either in India or abroad. Bishen Bedi was a master of flight, length & accuracy. He used to warn the batsmen to Never play cross bat to his bowling. Many tried but perished! But the most accurate exponent of LH spinners was undoubtedly Bapu Nadkarni. Nadkarni's figures in 1964 Test match Vs. England @ Madras read 32-27-5-0. The big difference between Bedi & Nadkarni was the flight variations of Bedi vs. flatter delivery of Nadkarni. Bedi was a willy as a Fox, who deceived the batsmen with spin & flight. I would rate Bedi next only to great Vinoo Mankad in LH spinners. Mankad & Subash Gupte (RH leg spin) were the 2 best spinners the world has ever seen. India always produced the best spinners & excellent captains like Hazare, Wadekar & Pataudi who knew how to handle the spinners. Dhoni should take a page out of these great captains Posted by Naresh28 on (October 1, 2014, 6:40 GMT) These past spin masters like Prasanna, Bedi, Chandrasekar should use their past experience and open academies to pass on skills to new generation. It would also give them income.
