    The biggest spinner of the cricket ball?

    Once again wrong. It is well known that Australian media trying to coverup that Hair / Emerson was asked to call Murali, and it shows by them even calling his leg breaks. Simply they did not see anything in Murali's action, but was just calling it like headless chicken. McGrath extended 13...

    https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/icc-study-reveals-that-99-of-bowlers-throw-141558 That may be a good citation I suppose. And Daily telegraph too. McGrath and Pollock would have sued Daily Telegraph for libel if it was not the case. Bottom line, under previous tolerance lomits, mcGrath and...

    McGrath and Pollock were chucking under the same 10 degree tolerance limits. At least Murali's off break was below this. And the calls were made by Hair on Murali's off breaks and by Emerson on a legbreak. What a ****ing joke.

    Like how McGrath and Pollock got waway after they were found to extend it by 12 degrees?

    Yet. Murali was twice called while bowling a leg breaks. Shows that the whole thing was staged to destroy his career.

    The problem of onfield calling is it is only accurate when the chuck is blatant. The marginal actions, onfield calls will be woefully wrong. Add bent elbows, hyperextension rtc, and it will become a joke. We don't want to go back to stone age, when technology is available.

    The biggest spinner of the cricket ball?

    Here is Ashwin, the same grip, same spinning finger. But like Swann he uses middle finger to spin off breaks. So these two are not your day to day orthodox finger spinners. Bruce Yardley also had an odd grip like this. Swann and Ashwin are pretty large men with long fingers. The way Yardley does...

    He was not typical. His grip was different from what I see.

    The way it has touched a raw nerve with a single post, I would say it is a bloody impressive return to the arena.

    The biggest spinner of the cricket ball?

    This is mostly right at least in sub continent. Our pitches spin, and spin big, so there is not much need to spin it more. Infact straighter balls are the ones that takes wickets. Quicker balls, yes. Pausing the action is also decelerating and accelerating the arm, just like trying to bowl faster

    The biggest spinner of the cricket ball?

    This occurs with advent of T20. Chucking occurs not when they are trying to spin it big. A good body rotation could give you a lot of spin. The problem comes when off spinners try to copy the pause of Saqlain, Shoaib, Ajmal, Hafeez and Ashwin. Pausing and re-starting the action causes it to be...

    And once in a while Upul Chandana used to do this.

    Qadir turned his googly square on turning tracks

    I would say Qadir on a spinning track. Non spinning track probably Murali, but I won't be making an issue if some one picks Warne.

    Players who retired too early.

    He was getting owned by Swann even before that. He was owned by dome off spinners while he owned some of them like Ajmal.

    The insecurity is truely masked.

    The better ODI player: Shahid Afridi vs. R. Jadeja

    Afridi, lot more inconsistent than Jadeja, but he does produce those single handed match winning performances. For a team with another good 7 - 8 players, he is the player with X factor. For a weaker team, no doubt it is consistency of Jadeja.

    Sanath Jaysuria vs David Warner

    He didn't last long once there was a lot of juice.

    Where will Kohli end up among Asian batsmen?

    He has to return empty handed if Boon is around.

    *Official* Australia tour of Sri Lanka 2022

    No SL batsman are ATG in my book just because of their batting. Jayasuriya, Sangakkara and Mathews will get in to lot of teams because of their secondary skills. But Lankan ODI bowlers will walk in to many sides with relative ease.
