How close Gupte came to challeng-ing Kumble, for the No.2 world Wisden
spot, on that first day of play could be gauged from the fact that
'Fergie' took the first seven West Indies wickets in a riveting row,
including the scalps of Holt (31), Hunte (29), Kanhai (0), So-bers
(4), Butcher (2) and Collie Smith (20). Gupte thus was***ing his
spin-ning fingers (in an effort to gobble up the four wickets
remaining for the All 10 High) when Ghulam Ahmed - looking none too
fit for the fray as captain-perplexingly took over from Subhash to
bowl some raggedly expensive off spin.

[Gupte-Mankad-Ahmed was the first spin trio long before
Chandra-Bedi-Prasanna
How close are we to another trio in the form of
Kumble-Kartik-Harbhajan this
Aussie summer?]
