Indeed, it's the number of four balls that they bowl with their stock delivery that counts in Test cricket. It's why Moeen has largely been garbage bar the odd innings with the ball, and will make or break Rashid's Test career should he be picked. In limited overs stuff, being able to spin it both ways against batsmen having to force the ball with swipes across the line is a dangerous weapon.
