    I can bowl Right arm LS/OS/Medium and Left arm Spin. Can throw with both the arms with same power.

    That's crazy.

    Good find with that clip too, Migara.

    Never wanting to be left out, he's spent the recovery period teaching himself to bowl left arm orthodox spin. We haven't called upon it yet, but he's probably more than handy with it. May well try his hand at the chinamen as well.
    Who is this mystery man? I used to play against Cracker at school. Did the bloke go to East Hills as well?

    Wasn't there a lad who did this at the U19 World Cup a few years ago? Probably disappeared from the game, as so many of them do.

    I remember a game where Mills wore glasses and tried to emulate Vettori. I reckon he bowled left arm spin for one over and actually did a decent imitation of Vettori's action. It was an all-star charity game of some sort.
