Quiz no. 1

by

When was the last time India fielded three specialist spinners in a Test?

No prizes for the winner.

    If I were to take a guess, I guess it would be back in the mid ’90s during the Kumble, Chauhan, and Raju days.

  2. Amar Says:

    I take that back…I vaguely remember when kumble, harbhajan, and kartik played together in a match…I think in either 2004 against australia or south africa in the home series.

  3. Rishi Gajria Says:

    I think Amar is right. I think it was Raju, Bahutule, Harbhajan, and Kumble in Madras.

  4. Pratik Says:

    The last one was against Australia at Mumbai in their last series here in 2004.

    The one before that, I believe, was the time before that when Australia visited India. Raju, Bahutule and Bhajji played in the 3rd Test match (the decider) — Kumble was out injured for the entire series — of that fateful series.

  5. Amar Says:

    Nope. You got it wrong, quizmaster. It was the test after that against South Africa that was the last time India used three spinners (Kumble, Harbhu, Kartik).

  7. Amar Says:

    Thanks.
