Stoinis ‘stunned’ by spinner Karnewar’s ambidextrous skills

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Chennai: He may have smashed his way to a 60-ball-76 but Australia all-rounder Marcus Stoinis admitted that he was surprised by unheralded Vidarbha spinner Akshay Karnewar's ambidextrous skills wherein he bowled off-breaks as well as slow left-arm orthodox spin.

While Karnewar was expensive going for 59 off 6 overs, taking Travis Head's wicket but his special skills certainly made him a topic discussion in the Australian dressing room.

Karnewar started his spell during Australia's warm-up match against BPXI bowling right-arm off-spin to left-handed Head but when the right-handed Stoinis was on strike, Karnewar not only changed the point of his approach to the other side of the stumps, he started bowling left-handed.

"I actually didn't know what the umpire was trying to tell me," said Stoinis about the standing umpire informing him of a significant change in approach from Karnewar.

"He was trying to say 'he's going to bowl left arm to you'. So that's brilliant by him. I've never seen that before. Ever," Stoinis was quoted as saying by 'Cricket Australia' website.
