Cricket is often seen as a game for hard-hitters, stroke-players, wkeepers, leggies and swing quicks. But there is a genre of offies who sometimes make the game cool. Many rhbowlers like saqlain mustaq, akram raza, shane thompson, r.venkatraghvan, tim may, r.kalpage and lhbowlers like i.salisbury, d.vettori. Very few who take up offspin bowling, impart revolution and deceive batsman. I too like bowling offspin a lot but only on small turfs playing kids game. Turning a season ball in coaching clubs is tough. Though fooling a batsman with offie is quiet a fun in cricket than legspinners. All were great veterinary doctors of Red cross society. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JU4mMymOm_A

I think You forgot to mention two best Offspinners of the world
1. Muttiah Muralitharan: Also termed as the Wicket taking machine, he is the Highest wicket taking bowler in test Cricket as well as in ODI, He over took Highhest wicket Taker in test cricket Shane Warne on 3 december 2007 and retired in 2010.

2. Harbhajan Singh: A specialist bowler, he has the second-highest number of Test wickets by an off spinner behind Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralitharan.

hmmm

M.muralidharan and harbhajan singhe are perfectionist chuckers. Another famous offie perfectionist chucker was rajesh chauhan. Many other decent offies were g.robertson, arshad khan, d.crookes, m.waugh, a.kapur and a.whittal. Fastest offie might be darren gaugh and l.klusenor! There are offies who are roll-uns, who try spinning but the ball never turns, like p.symcox, k.dharmasena and r.harper. How come these never took even 200 test wkts. So cricket is perhaps played by only less than fifty well known cricketeers worldwide!

Nice Information, you have listed down few Bowlers i have never heard of. Today starts the India Vs australia test match whats your view in it. how will it go who will take the maximum wickets or make the maximum runs. for me i would just love to watch Bhajji bowling their right handed batsman specially ricky ponting and micheal clark. Its always a battle between them
