    Great bowlers of two rotations of the bowling arm

    When I used to play u14's cricket I remember the main bowler in our side used to make two rotations of the arm that held the ball before delivery. I remember other kids at school also bowling like this. Having just watched some Barry Richards youtube, I noticed a bowler using this method (at 1m26s in) It seems to be absent in modern cricket but I got wondering if it was ever as common an action as I remember from my school days.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DewKbgKOibg

    Are there any notable bowlers in test cricket who used this method? and for the sake of curiosity, can anyone identify that bowler in the footage?

    Who is the best ever double rotation bowler?

    looks like Colin Croft in the video

    Did Mike Procter have that type of action ?

    Froggy Thomson the Victorian tearaway from around 1970 had an unusual action that may be what you're talking about.

    These are the names coming to my mind. Not sure if they exactly fall into the category but comes close.

    This was such a great movie. Without subtitles I don't understand a thing, but the scene is still kickass! (When I watch foreign movies without subtitles, I always imagine they are discussing Pizza orders)
