    Calling all Off Spinners!

    Just seeing if there is any off spinners out there who want to join the OSS (Off Spinners Society). Some people may see this as a rip off the LSU (Pie Throwers Union), but i don't care.

    We got the best bowler of all time in Murali (anyone who wants to start a Warne v Murali Thread, the door over there) and some of the great bowlers of all time in Lance Gibbs, Bedi, Chandrasekhar, Hugh Trumble and Jack McNamara.

    So its time for a club/society of our own to pay tribute to these greats and celebrate the great and ever changing art of off spin bowling.

    So any off spinners out there, it doesn't matter if your part time or regular offie, that want you join just put your name here and i'll send you your membership package in the mail.

    Only if the membership package has anything I'd like in it. I'm a seam bowler but I did bowl a little off-spin the other day while practicing. It didn't spin, but I think that makes me qualified for this society. Just consider it a "straighter one", or better yet a doosra. That's right, I've already mastered it.

    Charminda how do you rate leon zammit or ben woolmer,if kregja fails to shine with his off spin next season the selectors may look elsewhere,and i gather these 2 depite being leggies are our next look ins.
    Steve o'leefe is a part timer for me and i doubt we will sign beau casson even tho its clear we are trying to sign him,to be honest we would be better signing brad hogg and he can alternate with macgill between tests and one dayers.

    Don't know much about woolmer, but zammit pathetic and shouldn't go anywhere near the NSW side. I think Steve O'Keefe is a lot better then a part timer and there also Bright. I looks to me as New South Wales are looking for more of an all rounder with O'Brien in the side and O'Keefe, Bright and Jason fit the bill.

    Hopefully we sign Casson though...

    I'm an offie, but strictly part-time. Bowling figures in the last five years: 4-1-44-0.

    Not really interested in joining, but I would like to stick my hand up as one of the many part time off spinners in the nets. Strictly a pace bowler really, but I do like to try to turn the odd ball. The lack of spin always deceives the batsmen

    You bowled a maiden but still went for 44?

    That was 2-1-24-0, 1-0-11-0 and 1-0-9-0.

    The maiden was bowled to a tailender, then I bowled the next over to their no4 and got hit for 4x6.

    I didn't think I bowled that badly!

    Small point, but the LSU wasn't set up due to the great leggies over the years. It was set up to aid leggies in the CWXI system - so the OSS (if it continues) could have some use towards that.

    Yeah that could be arranged, we'll see if there is any interest here first.

    I'm a right-arm quick but one of my coaches was so impressed with my slower off-break that he asked me to bowl a few overs of it (9 overs 3 maidens 2/29). It wasn't what you would call Murli-ish, and my stock ball was a wrong-un... which span further than the offie.

    Fast bowlers that bowl part time off spinners are fine, but if they bowl part time leggies, then we might have to ask you to start bowling offies in the nets.

    That's what i mean, they're all offies, and they work cause both me and the batsman are expecting a legspinner
