This is supposed to be a good-natured forum, where we all have fun discussing stuff, pulling each other's leg - but nothing mean or hurtful.
Hopefully we can keep it that way. Difference of opinion is normal - and often makes for good discussion, as long as it doesn't degenerate into ad hominem attacks.

Hopefully this spat between GS and Paddles is just that - a spat and nothing more.
I'd like to see both of them active on the forum - as it is, we have very few active members here.

Did Jim Laker and Tony Lock bowl much together?

Also trying to think who Alec Bedser may have bowled with.

Statham? Or are they different eras. Having a mind blank.

Edit: just checked, bedser was earlier but there were four years of a overlap.

Statham then partnered up with Trueman of course

Those players who participated in IPL auction but got unsold says a lot about market perception of their wicket taking ability under pressure. just saying ;)

Seeing a mention of IPL in a Classic Cricket thread made me wince just a bit. :-)

From yesteryear, mostly from my childhood readings, some partnerships I recall (top of head) are
Ted McDonald-Jack Gregory (limited though, largely 1921)
Larwood-Voce
Martindale-Constantine (also limited, largely 1935)
Lindwall-Miller
Ramadhin-Valentine (spin pair)
Heine-Adcock
Bedser-Trueman
Trueman-Statham
Trueman-Tyson (also limited)
Hall-Griffith (and some Hall-Gilchrist early on)
McKenzie-Connolly
Thomson-Lillee

Interestingly, I can't seem to recall partnerships with leading bowlers like Snow. I think after Trueman retired, and before Willis came on the scene, Snow was England's lone, reliable quick. Ken Higgs has fantastic stats but somehow I don't remember reading about Snow-Higgs as a pairing.

118 in 11 tests is pretty ridiculous.

Didn't philander get to 50 and 100 in a record or joint-record number of matches?

oh. raja just hates indians.

ps: finest bowling pair does not mean finest fast bowling pair alone. A work horse spin duo can make a great bowling pair for bowling over after over hardwork for days unlike fast bowlers who can do only spells in short bursts esp on subcontinent pitches.

True but I think there is a certain image of a spinner as a lone worker, the only master of his craft in the team, working alongside - yet somehow aloof from - his rock breaking, stick throwing fast bowler colleagues.

The seamers build their mud huts, while the spinner looks up at them occasionally from his papers where, with quill and ink, he is designing a revolutionary flying machine or drawing the Vitruvian Man :D

So I guess you don't think of two spinners operating in tandem as much. It's certainly less common compared to fast bowlers hunting in packs. England have only really done it in that Indian got a few years back, in recent times. Before Swann and Monty teaming up I guess you have to look back to Laker, Lock, Underwood or something? Don't know if they had regular partners that they bowled with. I can recall Surrey had a deadly spinning twosome but can't recall the exact composition at the moment.

Just starting reading a biography of Larwood, as it happens. I liked the anecdote by I think Fingleton "I got my bat straight in a defensive shot, Larwood was running in, and just before he was about to bowl the delivery something thudded into the middle of my bat. It was the ball."

Oh, of course the Indian quartet. :-)
I mentioned Chandra-Bedi in the very first post of this thread.
Bedi-Prasanna also did well, esp in the late 60s when Chandra was injured and returned only against England in the summer of 1971.
Venkat was a good bowler too, bowled a tight line and length, didn't give much away.
Just that after a very successful start to his career, he began flighting it less - and took less wickets too.
Prasanna was notorious for not being afraid to flight the ball - he would tempt the batsman to take him on but would deceive the batsman in flight.
Bedi also used to flight the ball a lot.
Chandra of course bowled his legbreaks and googlies at a good pace - often quicker than the "quicks" in the side.
Much like the master in an earlier era, Bill O'Reilly.

man. you tend to forget cricket is global sport. it's played not just in england or australia where they play just one spinner. open your eyes. broaden your horizons. look to south asia. for the past 50 years all south asian teams sport not one but 3 spinners (2 genuine & one alrounder) for EVERY fkking test match. spinners take up whopping 70% of work load of bowling zillion overs, THE REAL WORK HORSES. slap. wake up !!!

On a serious note, how different are the conditions? I know Indian conditions actually vary, weather/climate wise, depending on where in India you play. But I imagine that Sri Lanka is not hugely different from southern Indian Test grounds?

srilanka is more dry place compared to india as it's nearer to equator. it's more spin friendly wicket. Not many visiting teams won in srilanka if you check history. white wash is very very rare.

Bollocks.

Indian pitches turn sideways when the Anglos of Safrica, NZ, Aus and England arrive. They are fast and bouncy with seam movement when Sri Lanka and Bangladesh arrive. That recent one off Banga test in India had the ball carrying through like it was Perth in the 1980s.

And Pakistan who have both spinners and fast bowlers with competent batsmen in all conditions are banned.

Kolkata went from a dustbowl to a seamers paradise in the ipl this year when they bought a new pace attack. New pace attack meant new pitch surfaces.

Indian pitches are made to suit. Just like Englands and Australias (bar Sydney). But they really push the boat out far with day 1 bunsen burners. Safrica could produce big turning pitches if they wanted, but they don't. But to be honest - I wish NZ did the same. The level of pitch preparation to suit home team is the issue - not the principle. In my opinion, NZ ought to have played Safrica on turning wickers at home, and lush swing n seam for teams like Aussie, but not England.

Victories are tricky to judge on.
So much goes into a victory that isn't attributable to just one pair.
What if it's a terrific pair but they are part of a horrible batting line-up?
Like Lyon-Agar now.
Or they're a mediocre pairing but part of a terrific batting line-up?
Like Kumble-Harbhajan, or Ashwin-Jadeja.

:lol: surely you troll

seriously though, a good average can be attained by playing a high number of tests against a poor batting line up in favourable conditions

Then we need to go one level deeper at least.
To start with, I'd say, look at home/away. For this purpose, the entire subcontinent should be considered "home", for all subcontinent players.
(That should take care of Ashwin-Jadeja).

I think all spinners struggle with the different speeds and lengths you have to bowl on different continents - and even different surfaces on the same continents. Some of them work it out eventually later in their careers.

I dont think there has been a single spinner in my memory that batsmen in Australia feared getting out to whilst playing in Australia.

McDonald & Gregory
Ambrose & Walsh
Wasim & Waqar.
Muralitheran & Vaas.
Willis & Botham
Donald & Pollock
Steyn & Phillander
McGrath & Gillespie

Tony Lock is famous for perhaps the most iconic 1 wkt in a match performance in history at Manchester in 1956 his partner took the other 19.
