    Shane Warne - Revolutions Per Second

    Does anyone have any idea how many revolutions per second Warne imparts on a normal legbreak delivery. Assuming he's going for maximum turn. Has this been measured?

    Yeah, classic Richo. IIRC he reckoned he counted 70 revs per second or something, despite television using only 27 frames per second.

    Probably was counting between frames, tbh.

    Get a good look at it - if we lose in a few hours' time it'll be gone.

    First post of the challenge thread. If England don't make the semis which he later narrowed down to the final, I get to change his avatar.

    Cripes, I know Martyn's optimistic, but he must really not care about his avatar...

    BTW - was yourself and Amir's transformers the result of a challenge, Rodgie-esque copycat movement, or a collusion?
