Correct me if I am wrong but names such as Xavier Doherty, Ashton Agar, Michael Beer, Aaron O’Brien, Steve O’Keefe, Chris Lynn bowl left arm orthodox and could be coached by anyone from Ray Bright to Bishen Bedi to Monty Panasar.

Names such as Cameron Boyce, Adam Zampa, James Muirhead, David Warner, Steve Smith and others could be taught by Warnie.
