Hey Harv,

Ages ago you posted an article about a young English "mystery" spinner who was getting forced out of the game due to suspicion over his action. If I recall correctly he was a net bower for the Aussies during the '09 Ashes and not one of them could pick him.

What was the young lads name?

Cheers Big H.

I reckon it was probably Maurice Holmes:

Thanks H,

That's the lad and the article I was thinking about. So shortsighted by the powers that be in this country..........here we are moaning about lack of spin options and you hear of a lost talent like that.

Apart from Moores, I think young Kerrigan is about to get the same level of support.
Article was really interesting. Players all over the world are being reviewed, particularly with regard to their Doosra, but in this country we throw a young lad to the wolves (so to speak). Same level of support here and we might start to get somewhere.
