Been a couple of Pakistani spinners who've been accused of taking phone calls before they went about their bowling on any given day.

Why its everytime Herath vs Ashwin vs Yasir? Mustafizur is a ****ing spinner. Dont know why people dont get it and throw his name in the mix. Poor form from every poster.

Cricket is an intereting sport when it comes to athleticism... I watched Ashwin running today, he had the speed, grace and agility of a world class darts player. Interesting that the no.1 player in one half of the game can move in such a way.

Ashwin used to be much fatter if I recall. At least now he can see his feet when he looks down.

Being round >> speed, grace and agility when it comes to spin bowling

I said this in the other thread, but spinners are the least athletic athletes I can think of. Up there with Golfers.

It's almost like being exceedingly fit works against you as a spinner somehow.

Why are so many spinners are unfit, ugly and generally unathletic looking people? It's a blight on the sport. Every time one of my Chinese friends takes a peek at my stream they happen to see Ashwin going about his business and they shake their heads in disbelief at how this bloke is a professional athlete. How can you hope to attract any sort of following to the game like that? The SC teams in particular need to hire Faf as their trainer.

That's a good point. Most of the current ones look less like athletes and more like unhappily married low-level accountants leading lives of quiet desperation. We've had some shockers in the recent past too from Paul Wiseman to Kaneria to the king of them all in Ramesh Powar. Vettori seems like a rare exception.

Can you imagine how much more ugly Ashwin would be with a bigger forehead? Hire Faf, they should not.

it is quite easily herath. he's proved he can turn matches by himself against the best sides in the world over the last 5 years.
