Doosra can’t be bowled legally: Holding

Vote


Pakistan’s spinners have wreaked havoc with their doosras in the team’s two victories over the West Indies in the ongoing ODI series but former West Indies fast bowling legend Michael Holding has raised questions on the legality of the delivery.

The trio of Saeed Ajmal, Mohammad Hafeez and Shahid Afridi have chipped in with combined figures of eight wickets for 202 runs from 60 overs they have bowled in Pakistan’s eight-wicket and seven-wicket wins.

Hafeez and Ajmal have managed to trouble the West Indies batsmen with their virtually unplayable doosras but Holding had said that he was not convinced.

“My belief regarding the doosra is very clear, I don’t think it can be bowled legally,” Holding said.

“I find it difficult to believe anyone can bowl that delivery with his wrist alone, the elbow has to be used for the power,” he said on a Pakistan website.

“It’s a matter of how much elbow power the bowler uses and the ICC obviously believe some bowlers use less than the 15 degrees and others don’t.”
