Stand aside Paul Adams, Sohail Tanvir and Shivil Kaushik - a little-known club cricketer from the northern Indian state of Rajasthan now has the dubious honour of owning cricket's worst bowling action.

The 20-year-old spinner has set social media alight, after a series of videos documenting his bizarre run up and series of arm movements prior to delivery - that puts the "frog in a blender" action of former South African test bowler Adams to shame.

The Herald Sport Investigations team have determined that the bowler is playing in the not-at-all wordy SAG Premier League Tournament 2017 Andhra Pradesh Open Club level tournament, for a team from Rajasthan.

Through attempted translation of an interview he conducted in Hindi, our investigation determined that he is 20 years old, but the lack of fluent Hindi-speaking staffers left us without a name for this mystery off-spinner.


In the videos, the tweaker leaves batsmen confused as to whether he is going to bowl left or right handed.

Judging by clips of his deliveries being dispatched to the boundary, however, this mystery bowler has some way to go before equaling Adams' 134 wickets in 45 tests.
