Economical in the second innings and plenty of overs. Me thinks he was threatening but unlucky.

Yorkshire 550. Kent spinner 1 for 149.

Kent spinner who has only reached 50 3 times before and averages less than 20 then gets 116 not out..

Possibly not a spinners/bowlers wicket?

Always seems to hit boundaries as well...seems like an attacking player to me?

He is attacking, but too many of his boundaries early on (two of the four in this innings, going by correspondence) are edges through or over the slip cordon. Tries to play balls he shouldn't do before he's set, basically

"Two Yorkshire teenagers are at the centre of a new spin-bowling revolution that could make England the envy of the world."

Never a paper for hyperbole, the Mail.

Makes a nice change to hear something pleasant about young muslims in the Mail!

With huge respect to Alex Loudon, whose attempt to clone Muralitharan's doosra was farcical last summer, Azeem's doosra Mk I, released from his finger-tips, turns at 1,400 revs, compared to his standard off-spinner that comes out at 1,700.

"My first doosra is different from Muralitharan. I bowl it from the front of my hand. According to the revs' test, it's got plenty on it on release.

"The second doosra, like Murali's, is delivered with plenty of wrist movement. It's difficult to perfect without throwing, but I've got the wrists to do it. It's coming on well. English spinners in the past have bowled with just accuracy. Monty bowls his with energy and I like to put the revs on, that's why I can bowl it square sometimes."


Does this guy have an orthodox off spinners action?

TWO doosras? And to think that Batty has been working at it for years and can't even bowl one!

I think that the key words in that sentance are "It's difficult to perfect without throwing".

it would be nice to have seen Rashid bowl in the Roses game but alas the rain ruins any hope of that happening

The Mail on Sunday article is not particularly well researched.

Loudon's doosra is actually released from the front of the hand as well, unlike the Muralitharan doosra.

Poor journalism Bill Day, who clearly knows very little about cricket.

Good point I didn't pick up on that. He effectively "flicks" it out of the front of his fingers doesn't he?

I didn't think it was particularly fair to label Loudon's doosra farcical, not particularly difficult for the Sri Lankan's to pick admittedly but they have got someone in a different world to Loudon. His wasn't terrible but simply pales into significance compared to Murali.
