    Edward Craig, meet Anil Kumble

    Last night, when I read the Australia v South Africa first test preview, Edward Craig had written
    And the Australians are likely to select Stuart MacGill, the second best legspinner in the world, to make life more awkward.
    Subsequently, someone may have pointed out to him that Mark Waugh was possibly the only person, aside from MacGill himself, who thought so. The preview now says
    And the Australians are likely to select Stuart MacGill, who some claim is the second best legspinner in the world, to make life even more awkward.
    Edward, since you even pondered bringing together the words 'Stuart MacGill', 'second' 'best', 'leg-spinner' and 'world', I'll have to introduce you to someone I believe is the rightful holder of that distinction. He answers to the name Anil Kumble.

    It's obviously a typo. He's the best second legspinner in the world.

    Now imagine if Kaneria and Kumble had been picked for the Super test ICC XI and Warne & MacGill picked for Australia ... Who'd have been the best second legspinner? :) Magilla again!
