Among some of the incredible tributes and anecdotes coming out about Shane Warne is the question of would we ever see another spin bowler quite like him ever again.
During Tuesday’s chat with Ryan Daniels, something came up that cricket fans may not have heard before.
Warne had freakishly strong shoulders, arms and wrists, which enabled him to get great spin on the ball, even off a simple run-up.
According to Gideon Haigh’s biography ‘On Warne’, this extraordinary ability developed from a childhood incident which resulted in a young Warnie unable to walk for a few months.
Haigh said Warne’s time spent using a wheelchair to get around had inadvertently contributed to his extraordinary spin-ball ability.
Clairsy brought this up with Ryan who 100% agreed.
