    Will England produce a (decent) leg spinner in our lifetime?

    I was thinking about the worlds best teams, and noticing most of them had or still do have a legspinner, I was wondering if England would ever get one?

    Heard of him, you could have just said his name you know...

    The only option I thought of was Adil Rashid,

    Actually we've had leg spinners in the past but they have been crap (like Mr Sailsbury) so the thread should be called "Will England ever get a HALF DECENT legspinner in our lifetime"?
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...

    Nah. Rashid is nothing any more special than any other of England's recent spinners. He's just the latest subject of that great British institution, media hype.





    Plus he's French.

    Must admit I've never seen him bowl so I should probably shut my mouth, but what I'm reading/seeing on scorecards thus far makes me inclined to agree with you (ie the Lions game). However he got some quality players out in that Roses game not too long ago so there may well be something there to work with, however my fear and what I believe is most likely to happen if he is any good is that they handle him poorly (ie the media hype gets too much and they pick him before he's 21, he gets shown up terribly and the selectors and he himself loose confidence in his bowling and he's all washed up by 25).
    England are going to Sri Lanka this winter right?....and they will need a second spinner to support Monty, I get this sinking feeling Rashid's name is already pencilled in.
