Surprisingly tweaky for a part timer spinner

Inspired in no smalltmeasure by goughy's thread.

Sachin comes to mind. Used to turn it a mile with guile.

Mark Ramprakash.

Even Mike Atherton spun his leg breaks plenty when his back wasn't buggered.

First though was KP. Gets a heck of a lot of turn and bounce, it's just a complete lottery as to where the ball pitches.

He got 5 fer and bowled India to the victory last time played. So Galle does help "ordinary" spinners:ph34r:

Interesting to say the least!

He said that Tendulkar batted a bit like him. Did he also believe that Tendulkar bowled a bit like him? :)

On a serious note, tell us something more about Bradman's bowling...

Aravinda de Silva gave the ball a massive tweak for a part-timer - turned them square. Graeme Hick was also useful.

Hick was useful, but not a huge turner of the ball. Surprisingly accurate for a part-timer tho and on receptive decks could be handy.

If memory serves he topped our batting and bowling averages on the "brownwash" tour of 92/93.
