Wrist Spin Leg Spin website links

After finding yesterdays interesting website I thought it'd be a good idea to compile a list of my favourite websites that relate to Spin bowling.

This is a website that's offering on-line coaching, but if you click on the images on the right hand side of the home page, there's some useful clips. http://www.wattacoach.com/

This website is an example of the on-line coaching available through wattacoach - it's a you tube clip featuring Australia's Beau Casson and I reckon this is one of the most useful resources for wrist spinners on the internet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaXEw9-XjP4

This is probably the most popular one - Shane Warne with Mark Richards at Perth. Although this is pretty good I reckon the following 3 kind of obssess too much about the variations and can serve to do more damage to Wrist Spinners that are trying to learn the art http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfZgFi9Q9gc

Similarly Terry Jenner demonstrating Leg Spin basics on the BBC website here seen on youtube. This is possibly the better of the two http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NucZbWFy0c

The second Terry Jenner Wrist Spin clip again from the BBC website. This one deals with the variations in more depth. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puDkf9uNXPQ&feature=related

This is the first of the 2 cloverdale clips. I like this one because it features someone other than Warne, there's loads of clips of Stuart McGill who has a very different style to Warne. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlWYcuaTosc&feature=related

This is the 2nd of the Cloverdale and deals with Offspin primarily but it's still interesting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Si48Ch1EbRQ&feature=related

Another Off Spin - Mark Richards again, this time with Muttiah Mularitharan http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GrOLdi5s0M

This one with footage of Warne in slow motion so that you can see how the ball comes from his hand http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EznP02ZQOWE

Same thing with Murali http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxvYcRwyl9w&feature=related

And of course this Old Skool stuff including the Iverson/Gleeson techniques http://images.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://www.planetnz.com/palmheads/images/grips2_2.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.planetnz.com/palmheads/myhacks.php%3Fpg%3Dbent_finger&usg=__adTe_YljuWYciu_TL5pSUIGwa-w=&h=367&w=580&sz=23&hl=en&start=11&um=1&tbnid=EQdbxRnVADtSLM:&tbnh=85&tbnw=134&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dleg%2Bspin%2Bbowling%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive
