    I think he has taken something like 500+ wickets for Eastern Suburbs.
    I saw him him get two lbws against NaeNae. He pushes it through so quick that when he bowls his top spinner it is almost a guaranteed wicket if you don't pick it because you can't react off the pitch.

    I have no idea how much purchase he can get for his regular leggie.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    article makes him sound like a medium pacer with a leg spinners action.

    does he get any swing?

    Back at high school (funnily enough the same one Dry went to years earlier) we regarded him as a cult hero simply because he bowled leg spin and played for Easts. Always thought he should have had a fair crack at FC level.

    Lol, didn't realise Lance Dry had played FC cricket. +1 to my list of 'FC bowlers who haven't got me out'

    Well he's going to come on this site (based on past experience) if we bag him. But the word is he is also of the opinion he should have had more of a chance at FC and isn't best pleased.

    You must be able to verify the amount of purchase he could extract then?

    hope he does

    by the sounds of his bowling it wouldn't have gone down to well at FC, but then I've never seen him and maybe the article was skewed to make him sound less than he is. NZers can be bad against spin but we love looking awesome against lesser spinners and 100kph straight breaks would get smoked once batsmen figured out he never turns it.

    I wonder how distant a relative Bidwell is of Dry.

    Nah, seriously - the article says it all really.

    EDIT: And I've said all I have to say about him previously.

    Ryder must have faced this guy surely. What happened when he did?
