How to go from good to first-class... to world-class

Discover the methods used by leg spinners at the highest level

By Muhammed Haroon, professional leg spin bowler and coach

Have you ever wondered what it was like to be Shane Warne at his peak, or Abul Quadir? Have you thought how wonderful it would be to know how to bowl in ways that tie batsman in knots?

Those great bowlers could do it because they understood the key to being a high class leg spinner; the difference between ‘how’ and ‘when’.

Many leg spinners know how to bowl leg breaks, googlies and flippers. They are good players and will always do well at club and school level. Some of those spinners are accurate enough to offer control as well as wickets.  

If you are reading this you are at that stage yourself. You should be proud, although pride in past success is useless if your future has stalled.

Everything until this point is worthless unless you learn when to unleash your skills.

When you are able to read the clues you become a leg spin detective. You work out exactly what is happening one step ahead of the batsman. You even out think your captain. You act decisively and claim the wicket.

Then another
Then another

In every situation you feel confident of success because you know what to do. Wickets are merely a matter of time. Although you are a spinner, you are a strike bowler; you work your way through the best batting line ups. You winkle out the tail.

Your reputation grows and you can finally move from being a half-decent bowler to someone who can operate with ease in the professional game. You can dream of a real chance of international honours.

I know because I have played professional first-class cricket in Pakistan. I learned the hard way that it’s not enough to be accurate, or to have variations. I know from experience that to get high quality batsmen out you need to be an excellent thinker.

I came up with this online coaching course to help you to become an excellent thinker too.

On the course you will:
  • Learn little known ways to change how the ball is approaching the batsman from angle of attack to amount of loop.
  • Discover the keys to setting up a batsman for failure over several deliveries; like a hunter stalking his prey.
  • Attend the ‘University of Leg Spin’ by talking to other leg spinners and coaches who have gone through the same problems as you and lived to tell the tale.
  • Use action-based tasks to create your very own ‘how’ of getting batsman out easily.

It’s a huge leap to go from being a good player to being one who can make a living from the game. Using this course you can make that leap easy.
