also ajmal is the best spinner in the world atm by a margin, so tough to compare the average spinner to him, most won't get to his standard.
I don't think SS meant Shakib in that. But to be frank, Shakib also struggles in dead pitches. Like he did in this T20 WC. But while all the other class spinners had better success against even the same teams in the same pitch.
Still he was our best, but the rest of the bunch surely are bits and pieces spinners. They only can cause some trouble when the pitch is helping them. When the pitch stops helping a class spinner causes trouble with his brain... Change of angle, pace variation, length variation etc etc but our bowlers spin/pace alike are brainless, just like our batsmen... Just leave Shakib and look at the team...
