(Video) Simon Kerrigan’s seed adds to mourning over England’s spin prospects

Simon Kerrigan, Northamptonshire’s left-arm spinner, produced a beauty to dismiss Surrey’s Hashim Amla in the County Championship on Tuesday. The delivery pitched on off stump, gripped, and took Amla’s outside edge as it drifted through to the wicketkeeper. Some England fans may remember Kerrigan as the one-time heir to the Three Lions’ spin-bowling lineage. He played in the Ashes of 2013, appearing at the Oval with the series decided and being smacked for 53 off 8 overs as a chastening debut saw his confidence completely drained. It is good to see another of England’s spinning casualties back to his best.
