Shane Warne ‘blown away’ by six-year-old’s leg-spin bowling!
There is a certain pleasure in watching how a leggie twirls his hands to spin the ball. It is an equally satisfying exponent for the perfect cover drive that trademarks the craftsmanship of the batsman. Talking about spin, Shane Warne is a name that will echo through the ages.
The Wizard of Oz, the legend in his own making, Shane Warne is by far the most gallanted and greatest leg-spinners of modern day cricket.
A difficult form of bowling, leg-spin, uses wrists in action and produces a trajectory that can bowl over the batsmen and the spectators alike.
Warne was just crafty with the ball and as a leg-spinner had more than one stock delivery in his quiver. Slider, googly, flipper – you name it and the Aussie had it. It is not an understatement to say that mastering those deliveries is not easy but it rather takes years to just get them right. However, there are times when a gifted player descends with such abilities. And on that line, a Twitter user recently uploaded a video of a 6-year-old kid, who can be seen bowling with a similar wrist action as Warne – and not just that but he also mixes it up with variations of his own.
Watch the mind-blowing video of how the kid replicates Shane Warne’s style:

Shane Warne was mighty impressed with the video. Upon viewing he was ‘blown away’ with the resemblance to his style. Meanwhile, Warney, as we know, is never short of words, gave an expert advice to the young kid.
Absolutely fantastic, blown away on how good the ball comes out of your hand, especially at the age of only 6 – well done and keep up the great work. One tip – get that bowling arm a little higher ! https://t.co/54A9DgrL6H
