n.— «Moin Khan shouted doosra because he wanted Saqlain to deliver his disguised leg spin. When he said doosra he used the Urdu word for the other one. The purpose was to hide the instruction from the non-Urdu-speaking batsman.…Doosra in Urdu-Hindi means the other or second. It comes from doh meaning two.» —“Muralitharan and ‘doosra’” by Khaled Ahmed Daily Times (Lahore, Pakistan) May 30, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
