Piyush Chawla: Lets Wait and Watch

I watched Piyush Chawla bowling against South Africa in one of the recent one-day match in Ireland. I was impressed, thought was a good find. Unlike Anil, Piyush bowls geniune leg spin. In an era of Warnes, Kumbles, It is difficult for any new leg-spinner without being compared with these greats.

In more than a century of Cricket, World has produced great leg spinners like Richie Benaud, Subash Gupte, Vinod Mankad, Chandrasekar, Ramdin from past era. In early eights there was a paucity of leg-spinner until Sivaramakrishan burst in to scene with his beautiful googlies, flippers and dipping deliveries but soon went in to oblivion. Hirwani too started with a bang by picking 16 wickets against West Indies in Chennai but never was a bowler who was looking to pick wickets. Pakistan produced Abdul Kadir, Mustaq Ahmed who made decent name for themselves.

The art of leg spin was slowly fading until this man called Shane Warne made debut against India in early nineties. He bambozzled the world especially The South Africans(notabally Darren Cullian), The New Zealanders, The Britishers, The West Indians and Pakistanis. He had a fair bit of success against Srilankans but not against Indians. Who can forget the onslaught by Sidhu and Tendulkar against Warne. Shanes contemporary was Anil Kumble. Anil is completely different bowler than Shane. Unlike Shane who had loads of talent, Anil banked on persistance, commitment and hardwork. Anil was more like Chandra and Shane was a geniune leg spinner like Vinod Mankad and Richie Benraud

The other leg spinners who either are in circuit or requires a special mention are Dinesh Kaneria, Shahid Afridi and Staurt Macgill. Macgill is unlucky to be in same era as Warne. Another man who could challenge Warne on googlies and fillipers on his day is "Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar"

Where would Piyush fit in ?. Lets wait and watch.
