Bowling Shane!

There is no better sight in world cricket than Shane Warne bamboozling his opponents with his leg break bowling. Watching the magician in action for the Rajasthan Royals against the Kings XI Punjab yesterday was an absolute pleasure. Warne’s spell of 3 wickets for 19 runs of his four overs is one of the best bowling performances in the league thus far. He could have had more had Darren Lehman not dropped a sitter offered by Yuvraj in his third over. Warne did ultimately nab Yuvraj in his final over by cleverly reducing the pace and trapping Yuvraj in front of the wicket. The famous ‘zooter’ was also in display with Warne grabbing the wicket of James Hopes by catching him plumb in front of the stumps. The word ‘genius’ is often used loosely while describing sportsmen, but Warne is one man whose genius is unquestionable.
