Alas! My fingers are not functioning properly!I tried for one hour yesterday! I bowled 6 overs. I tried every trick which I learnt during my adolescence and youth. But no trick worked. Out of these 36 balls, I could spin only once. What has happened to me?
During my younger days, I used to bowl off-spin at a relatively faster pace. Speed was generated by the movement of right arm around the shoulder and off-spin was done by using the fingers of my right hand. Yesterday when I started bowling. my line and length was terrible, but after 2-3 overs, my line and length became okay. But what about spin? My spinning fingers could not be bent properly and I could not turn the ball (except once).
Was it due to cold or due to the fact that my fingers could not be bent properly to spin the ball? I am feeling sad!
