Ray Price returns

Ray Price, the Zimbabwe left-arm spinner, is set to return to international cricket. He has been called up for Zimbabwe's series against the West Indies later this month.

He has taken 69 wickets in 18 Tests at 35.86, but he was most productive in the 2003-04 season, taking 33 wickets at 22.42 from five Tests.

Brett Lee amazes !

Brett Lee not only helped Australia beat Sri Lanka but also let Australia to an innings victory. Lee claimed 4 for 86 and Australia now lead 1-0 in the two-match series.

Leg spin vs Off spin ?

I've heard people saying that leg spin compared to off spin is much difficult to play for a right handed batsman. I disagree for the same as I believe that it always depends on the bowler, the batsman skills and not according to the type of spin applied.Do let me know about your views regarding the same and what kind of spin you prefer to play against ?
