    Check the commentators making fools of themselves in this high quality clip. One of them being Sunil Gavaskar, one of the best batsmen in the last 30 years. YouTube - IPL 2009: Best Of Shane Warne

    beautiful slow motion shot of the flipper on the 2nd delivery!! he gets some pretty serious revs on it. it swang in hard as well which is what i have observed when i bowl it.

    i absolutely wet myself at the Hayden dismissal! how to make a batsman look like a complete ******.

    its such a shame that HD television wasnt around when Warne was at his peak, imagine the amazing replays we could have had if the Gatting ball had been in high definition!

    A exaggerated example of the potential drift/curve/swing that can be produce by a spinning ball. I wonder if this would be any good when training batsmen? YouTube - Blitzball : Amazing Curveball

    Yeah that video is epic.

    I don't have the talent but it would be amusing to see some video of Shane Warne getting big drift dubbed over with the sound from this trailer for The Last Airbender.

    I also found an answer to what the spin bowler's anthem is, it is of course this great tune. I've read Barnes Wallis only got it to work when an amateur spinner who was on his staff pointed out that he was spinning it the wrong way round and needed to bowl a zooter instead...

    According to the author of the definitive work on the Lancaster bomber, the gentleman concerned was reckoned good enough to have been a county-level spinner had war not intervened. If he knew about the zooter/flipper in '43, he must have been good; after all, Grimmett had only discovered the backspun flipper a few years earlier, hadn't he?

    There is a slight connection in that Grimmetts son flew the Lancaster during the war and won the DFC . Grimmetts favourite gloveman, the incomparable Charlie Walker, was killed in Lancaster over Germany. Both men knew of Grimmetts mystery ball, especially Walker.

    how much training can you do when you spend all day writing the complete and utter b*llocks that Swanny does on Twitter?

    My point exactly and the point the other bloke was making as well. But even though - Swannie is either a very natural talents or maybe finger spinnng is easy, but any follow up to that aspect of the comment needs to be elswhere and not in this section, so as a concession to my bad post here - have a new link posted by a new bloke 'Teesra'
