Lightbulb Teenage spin bowler devises double-bounce delivery to stop Twenty20 six-hitters

Teenage spin bowler devises double-bounce delivery to stop Twenty20 six-hitters

After 278 sixes were hit during the ICC World Twenty20, bowlers need to find new ways to curb the flow of runs.

And Neil Pinner, an off-spinner who plays for Worcestershire's second XI, may have found the answer.

The 19-year-old from Stourbridge is developing a delivery which bounces twice before reaching the batsman.

"It just makes it so much harder for the batter to hit it out of the ground, which is what they are trying to do in Twenty20 cricket," he told BBC 5 live.

The Marylebone Cricket Club, guardians of the rules of cricket, confirmed that a double-bounce delivery would be legal providing it left the ground after the second bounce.

According to law 24.6, the umpire at the bowler's end will only call no-ball if a delivery "either (i) bounces more than twice or (ii) rolls along the ground before it reaches the popping crease."


"There is perhaps a 'Spirit of Cricket' issue about it but nothing written in the laws," the MCC's Fraser Stewart told BBC Sport.

He admitted that the law may have to be reviewed if the double-bounce delivery becomes widely used and drastically reduces the number of huge sixes that are such a major attraction for Twenty20 enthusiasts.

"We're constantly evaluating the laws trying to keep a fair balance between bat and ball," he said.

"Most purists would want to think a ball should only bounce once and the ECB could write a playing regulation overriding the law to stipulate that players at elite level should be able to bowl a ball that only bounces once.

"We will now monitor it and we are always in close contact with the ECB so perhaps we will do something."

Pinner has yet to bowl a double-bounce delivery in a match, but has been practising it in the nets for the past couple of weeks.

"If we can perfect that and bowl six balls that bounce twice and they can't hit them out of the ground, then I'm doing my job as a spinner," he said.

However, Peter Such, a former off-spinner who played 11 Tests for England during a 20-year career and is now spin bowling coach at the National Performance Centre at Loughborough, is dubious about whether such a delivery will work.

"It will be a challenge to bowl, you've got to take the pace off so that it does not bounce twice too quickly," he said.

"But if it's slower and you get it wrong batsmen can set themselves and smash it out of the park."

Ashraful is the Baap of this type delivery. One of KKR spinner also tried it in IPL. But his experiment was not successful like Ash who got the wicket of De Villars on his first Doosraful delivery. Cricinfo rated its one of the most bizarre fashioned out. But there was not special mention about Ash success as the third grade cricket kid is getting now.

It's a difficult one. Ashraful's was obviously a fluke, but if this guy can perfect it, he will have added quite an effective weapon to his armory. The margin for error is minuscule.

Ash has bowled the double bouncer a few more times after that
