    This is my list in order of merit of the top 10 batsman ever facing spin bowling



    1.Brian Lara-688 runs facing Murlitharan in 2003 on turning tracks proves the point.Artistry in regions of divinty.





    2.Sachin Tendulkar.-noone tore Warne to the shreds as Sachin did be it in India,Sharjah or Australia .Epitome of technical mastery.







    3=Rohan Kanhai/Everton Weekes-Batted more like Bradman ever than anyone in their day demolishing the likes of Gupte.Traversed regions of domination unexplored.Huge run aggregates in series versus India.







    5.Ian Chappell-The ultimate master on bad wickets beautifully tackling the likes of Prasanna in India in 1969-70.Marvellous footwork.Beautifully danced down the pitch.







    6.Zaheer Abbas-Supreme timing and style who on his day could sit besides the Gods of Olympus.No batsman was more prolific against the Indian spin attack when he averaged 195 with 583 runs at home in 1978-79 nor when averaging 130 with 3 centuries in 1982-83.Overall scored 5 double centuries in his career including 2 in England facing top quality spin.Mesmerised Derek Underwood and Bishen Bedi.







    7Javed Miandad-Record speaks for itself with his great consistency on Indian soil in 1983 and 1987 scoring a fifty almost each time.In 1978-79 tore the Indian spin quartet to pieces.Few batsman made such subtle technical adjustments





    8.Alan Border-Ultimate man to play the role of alone crusader in a crisis.Proved his prowess when scoring 2 150's in a single test at Lahore on turning wicket.Prolific on turning pitches in India .





    9.Alvin Kalicharan -Kanhai.,the other way round.Played a gem when scoring 124 at Bangalore in 1974-75 and also when scoring 187 at Mumbai in 1978-79.







    10.Sunil Gavaskar -His 96 on a broken wicket against Pakistan is possibly the best test innings ever in a losing cause or broken wicket.In a total package the ultimate epitome of batting perfection .





    11.Virendra Sehwag-Never seen a batsman express such ferocity facing spin on turning tracks as Viru did when scoring 201 in Sri Lanka .No batsman tore spinners apart at such a n incredible strike rate as Sehwag.





    12.Aravinda De'Silva-A master as a technician ,particularly on bad wickets.

    Who ever averaged the best against Murli (10 Tests minimum) should be at the top of this list.
