From pace to spin
« on: February 05, 2017, 07:02:54 PM »

Name me two TT fastbowlers who later became great spin bowlers for their  country.

One of them actually played for the WI youth team as  a pace bowler.

NOT TALL MAN.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Well Gray was already a pacer so he couldn't go from pace to spin.

No, not Ramdhin.

Wild guess llike a fkng boss!!!  ;D ;D ;D

Rangy Nanan and Inshan Ali both of Preysal village started off as pace bowler. Inshan switched around the age of 13 but Rangy actually opened the bowling I  think with Michael Holding around 1973. Only about three years later did he turn to spin based on the recommendation of Jeffery Stollmyer.
