Doosra can't be bowled legally: Michael Holding

Pakistan's spinners have wreaked havoc with their doosras in the team's two victories over the West Indies in the ongoing ODI series but former Windies fast bowling legend Michael Holding has raised questions on the legality of the doosra.

The trio of Saeed Ajmal, Mohammad Hafeez and Shahid Afridi have chipped in with impressive combined figures of eight wickets for 202 runs from 60 overs they have bowled so far in Pakistan's easy eight-wicket and seven-wicket wins in two matches.

Hafeez and Ajmal have managed to trouble the West Indies batsmen with their virtually unplayable doosras but Holding, who is now a renowned commentator had said that he was not convinced.

"My belief regarding the doosra is very clear, I don't think it can be bowled legally," Holding had said during the second ODI between Pakistan and West Indies in St Lucia.

Another self - created bit of Philosophy by the great Michael Holding , wonder what grudge he holds against spinners , ...maybe because Walsh lost his Highest wicket-taker tag to Warne within a couple of years or so ....:)
