The Leggie Magician

Moving to New Delhi in 1995 from the US (baseball country), I was fascinated with the additional dimension of bouncing the ball, specifically in spin bowling. I learned the difference between off-spin and leg spin the hard way, I still call off-spin the nut cracker (I'm a right handed batsman). With time I became a fan of the craft and it's craftsmen. Truly devastated with the news. The Flipper was my favourite delivery of his. We lost a true magician. RIP.
