Decoding the art of spin bowling

Thursday, March 09, 2017

Spin bowlers mature with age and Lyon at the age of 29 studied the art of bowling off spinners in a most clever and calculated manner. Nathan Lyon's complete control of the ball on the first day of the Bengaluru Test came after his limited success at Pune. It is necessary to have constant and concentrated practice to hit the right spot all the time. No player has risen to the top without spending hours, days, weeks practising in the nets and, what is more, practising to a plan. Henry Cotton, the famous golfer practised putting until his back ached with bending over the putter. Nathan Lyon mastered the art of offspin bowling under watchful eyes of Shane Warne and other reputed spinners Kreja and Mallett. Kudos to Lyon for the good show. Hail team from Down Under for the way they adjusted to the slow conditions.
