Gleeson

October 1950 edition of Sporting Life.
Dick Whitington writes on Jack Iverson's mystery spin bowling.
A 12-year old son of a railway worker reads the piece and gets fascinated by the magic eye sequence of Iverson's middle finger imparting its double-dealing tweak.
A couple of months later, Iverson has the time of his life while bamboozling the visiting English batsmen.

 

Almsot a couple of decades later, this man too did it.
