Since the retirement of the great Shane Warne in 2007, Australia have struggled to find a spinner to replace him, despite repeated attempts.
Warne's contemporaries Stuart MacGill and Brad Hogg are among those who initially tried to fill the breach but a variety of new players have also been unearthed by Cricket Australia.
Ashton Agar today became the latest on whom the Aussies are pinning their hopes.
