#9 Subash Gupte

Fascinating and impactful

During his peak, Gupte was the most penetrative leg-break bowler across all nations. With his supreme control and a lethal googly, he confounded many world-class batsmen with ridiculous ease.

He performed admirably on his first tour of West Indies picking up 27 wickets against the legendary Walcott, Weekes and Worrell known famously as the 3 W’s. The iconic Sir Gary Sobers rated him as the finest leg-spinner he had ever seen. Even though his career ended acrimoniously, his legacy was never in doubt.

Statistics - Tests: 149 wickets from 36 matches at an average of 29
