Legspin, it's cooler than you are.

Legspin, it's cooler than you are.

North Middlesex CC’s overseas player from 2008, Tarun Nethula, has made the cut for Auckland Aces, in the West Indies three day tour match, prior to the Windies upcoming test/ODI series against New Zealand.

Which is great news.  Not only is he a talented cricketer, but he’s a bloody good chap as well.

He bowls leg-spin, (I kept wicket too him for a friendly last season) which we all know is as cool as it gets, and he’s a handy lower order bat too.

Doesn’t look as though he’s going to get a bat in this innings, as Auckland were 359-2 on day 1, so we’ll be watching out for his bowling performance…

Let’s hope he has a blinder, because we need more leg-spinners in world cricket!

Why should England and New Zealand spinners always have to be sub-continental expats? Is ‘Spin’ some kind of sub-continent phenomenon? Or is it the English obsession with pace?
