    What is more difficult: Facing a quality off spin attack or leg spin attack?

    Which is more difficult quality off breaks possibly with a doosra thrown in - or quality leg breaks combined with googlies/top spinners?

    Great, a new meme.

    Depends if one's right or cack handed, one supposes.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    ^ I'll translate- It depends if you are right or left handed. I'm a leftie and I find playing a quality Offie Much harder. But then again a righty would beg to differ.

    In general, leg spinners are considered more difficult for right handers and off spinners more difficult for left handers.
    Two gentlemen by the name of Lara and Tendulkar took that belief on its head and destroyed it.

    Was this a typo TECO?. Since of course the likes of Verity, Underwood, Iqbal Qasim, Bedi, Vettori (@ his peak), Johnny Wardle would qualify as the quality LAS in test history.
