Hello viewers! welcome to Nothing But Cricket ! In this video am gonna explain you the mystery behind the Afghan Leggy Rashid’s bowling In the last three months Rashid clearly reached great heights with his bowling skills But now his mystery is revealed in the recent test match played between India and Afghanistan I don’t know how many of you watched that match but anyhow now am gonna tell the mystery with less complex terms so before going into the video please do subscribe and also press the bell symbol to get instant notifications whenever I post exciting stuff You can’t add Rashid Khan in orthodox leg spin category coz he bowls 70% of his deliveries as googly and rest are legspin The main reason behind his success is the identical delivering of Googly and Leg spin I’ve already posted videos on Legspin as well as googly.. those who missed them can find them in the card Always new bowlers who are different from others will make the life of batsmen difficult for a period of time When Ajenta Mendis made his debut Batsmen found him difficult to face they couldn’t find the direction of turn after the ball pitching but now using the technological advancement people analyse the bowlers easily their variations are read and proper plans are given to batsmen to tackle them Rashid was not easy to read so they were not able to figure out him but now in the recent test match the analysts differentiated his googly and legspin with simple grip change still it’s a difficult thing for a batsmen when a googly is bowled, the back of the arm of the bowler will be facing the batsmen batsmen will read the googly using this appearance of wrist but when leg spin is bowled the back of the arm will be facing you but when Rashid bowl, in all his deliveries the back of the arm will be facing the batsman so batsmen found it difficult to figure out the wrong’un but he slightly changes the grip when he bowls legspin he bowls googly with the normal legspin grip but while bowling googly he almost grips like an off spinner leaving sufficient space between the fingers just like an off spinner and then he uses the center finger to thwip the ball just like a carrom ball that is like bowling a carrom ball from back of the arm we can call him as a Googly spinner who bowls legspin as his variation so his stock ball is googly which he bowls more and uses leg spin as a variation and this is why batsmen find it difficult.. now even after figuring out the batsmen won’t find him easy to face coz when you see from batsmen’s point of view you can only see the bowler’s back of the arm not the grip of the ball He has a greater hand speed and you can’t see the grip even in this test match the cam which showed the non identical grip is form the back side so surely the batsmen can’t identify the grip from standing in front of him but surely they’ll find a way to tackle this coz even small variations are getting caught in cam for instance the analysts found the difference between Markande’s legspin and googly using the difference in the height of the release point when he bowled googly he was low and when he bowled leggy he was high.. by using this difference batsmen found a way to tackle him quite quickly.. but in Rashid’s case , he has identical release points, identical hand speed and the only difference is grip back of the arm carrom ball kinda delivery is legspin and then a normal orthodox googly.. this is how he is bowling.. SO this is the reason why Rashid was lethal this long said the analysts soon batsmen will find a way to tackle it the level of mystery is proportional to the difficulty of breaking down his secret but surely analysts will find a way Lets see how Rashid gonna tackle this issue a bowler will become successful only when he tries to counter attack the batsmen with new varities we’ll wait n see the progress of him thanks for watching this video In the commentary the commentators will be using complex words and talking among themselves coz that is their standard but I’ve explained using simple terms .. hope you guys understood if you find this video useful, please do like before leaving please do subscribe and also press the bell symbol to get instant notifications from NBC Thanks for watching !!
