About this product
- DescriptionShane Warne has shown the world how to bowl leg spin. But how many people kw that English cricketers pioneered the art? Leg breaks, googlies, flippers - all were invented here. So how did we come to give it all away? Reach the point where home crowds would boo an English leggie's efforts, yet then pay gracious tribute to the Australian master of the most beautiful form of bowling kwn to man. The Strange Death of English Leg Spin shows how a century of neglect effectively killed any chance of England producing its own Warne. Petty rivalries, mistrust, ridiculous rule changes, jealousies, ineptitude and neglect combined to ensure that Ian Salisbury, Tich Freeman, Chris Schofield and others never had a chance to become world-beaters. Featuring interviews with key players, psychologists and coaches and in-depth historical research, the book suggests how England can once again become the global centre of leg spin.
