doosra
 n.— «Saqlain [Mushtaq], 22, who flicks his thumb and index finger across the seam while keeping his wrist action almost identical to his stock off break, has revolutionised his art with his “doosra”.…”The Urdu word for it is doosra, first is off spin and second is ‘doosra’ bowl. It’s the same grip but I just use my finger, the same spinning finger and my thumb.”» —“Saqlain puts faith in God’s gift” in Hobart, Australia Agence France-Presse Nov. 16, 1999.
