Team of Australian spinners that have played since Shane Warne retired (Note: there's 14 of them in total, only counting those that have played as a spinner. So Maxwell, North don't count)

1. Cameron White
2. Nathan Lyon
3. Steve Smith
4. Ashton Agar
5. Stephen O'Keefe
6. Nathan Hauritz
7. Michael Beer
8. Brad Hogg
9. Xavier Doherty
10. Jason Krejza
11. Stuart MacGill

Now, without cheating and looking it up, who knows the other three?
Apparently Smiddy was brought into the squad as a batsman who could bowl a bit of spin, and was basically competing with North. Was averaging like 50 or so in Sheffield Shield or something. Might have read up on it on Reddit, can't remember exactly.

Started his career at number 8 though and no other spinners in the bottom 4.

Smiddy was definitely brought in as a spinner who could bat

he was seen as the next Warney. even had a similar action

me and a mate called him Stick Revarne

cos he kinda looked like Nick Riewoldt, bowled leggies like Warne and name was Steve Smith
