Cricket, Lovely Cricket!



Dr. Kishore played cricket during his high school and college years. He represented his college in inter-collegiate competitions. He is an all-rounder but best known for his Left-arm unorthodox spin, or chinaman, a type of bowling in the sport of cricket.

Left-arm unorthodox spin bowlers use a wrist hand action to spin the ball which turns from off to leg side of the cricket pitch. The direction of turn is the same as that of a traditional right-handed off spin bowler; however, the ball will usually turn more sharply due to the spin being imparted predominantly by the wrist.

In cricketing parlance, the word “chinaman” is used to describe the stock delivery of a left-arm “unorthodox” spin bowler. The name has its origins in a Test match played between the West Indies and England at Old Trafford, Manchester, in the year 1933. Elliss “Puss” Achong, a player of Chinese origin, was a left-arm orthodox spinner, playing for the West Indies at the time. According to folklore, Achong is said to have had Walter Robins stumped off a surprise delivery that spun into the right-hander from outside the off stump. As he walked back to the pavilion, Robins said to the umpire, “fancy being done by a Chinaman!”, leading to the popularity of the term in England, and subsequently, in the rest of the world.
