India has produced some of the finest spinners in the world like Anil Kumble, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Bishan Singh Bedi, Chandrasekhar, and Prasanna.

Traditionally, Indians have been great players of spin bowling. The way Indian batsmen use their feet against spinners is a treat to many. Shane Warne, one of the all-time greatest spinners, had a tough time against the Indians.

But, there have been few spinners who have troubled Indian batsmen with their guile and trickery. Let's take a look at them:

Muralitharan is one of best spinners that have ever played the game. He was easily the best off-spinner of all time.

He was a big spinner of the ball and such was his mastery that he could turn the ball on a table.

Amongst spin bowlers, he was the highest wicket-taker against India, which tells you how good he was.

He took 800 wickets in 133 Test matches, while against India he took 105 wickets in 22 Tests.
