These are not good days for spin bowlers. Shane Warne has retired. Anil Kumble is on the verge of retirement too. Only Murulidharan is the spinner who is shining at the present days. So, it came to me as a shock that Jamie Dalrymple has predicted that spin bowling is going to dominate in World Cup Cricket 2007.
Dalrymple, who has quietly forced his way into the side in the last six months, topscored with 76 in England's 241-run demolition of Bermuda in a warm-up game on Monday but the 26 year-old off-spinner would also have liked a bowl.
