The Strange Death of English Leg Spin

Brilliant to see Adil Rashid today become the first English leg spinner since Tommy Greenhough in 1959 to take five wickets in a Test innings.  Why has it taken 56 years for this to happen?  Read Justin Parkinson’s excellent book The Strange Death of English Leg Spin: How Cricket’s Finest Art Was Given Away for some of the answers!
