    What does this guy bowl????

    Yesterday, I played cricket (shock horror) and i am not sure what he was bowling.

    We was using a leg spinners wrong-un action, but that was his stock ball. As he didn't bowl one leggy.

    What is he bowling?

    I voted for crappy purely because if he's using a leg spinners action and bowling basically off breaks then its pointless. May as well bowl off breaks because its easier on accuracy side.

    PS Your signature should possibly say 'caught' or 'catches' rather than 'catched'.

    I have a mate who bowls like that in my school team. I didn't vote for crappy bowler, because my mate is dangerous and takes wickets because he confuses the opposition

    Well if he was bowling googlies all the time, he would be a legspinner (Like Kumble) If he was using his fingers to bowl offies then he is an offspinner, regardless of what his action looks like..

    Sounds like an odd kind of Murali here...a bowler who bowls right-arm-wrist-spin but turns it like an off-break.

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    I had one of these spells a few years ago when I screwed up my wrist position entirely and couldn't seem to bowl leg breaks as I turned it over too far and ended up bowling wrong-uns all the time.

    Basically he's a mirror of Adams.

    one would think he'd be known as a wrist spinner??

    even despite the fact he bowls off spin.....

    He is an right arm off spinner becuase his stock ball turns from off to leg (to a RHB), regardless of whether he uses his writs or not. I can understand him doing it, as wrong-uns generally turn more than othodox finger spin.
