How do great leg spinners get started?

Bowler’s like Shane Warne, Abdul Quadir and Anil Kumble are exciting. They take wickets with art, style and guile. They do it without having the advantages of pace and fear that the quicks have.

But even the greats start as beginners.

How did they get from first picking up a ball and having a go at leg spin to becoming a master of the art?

Until now it’s been an impossible and expensive job to find out.

Coaches at club and school level (if you have one) know nothing about bowling leg spin. It’s too specialist. You are on your own.

All the best leg spin coaches are sucked up into the first-class game or charging vast amounts that only the richest can afford.
