Change description of bowling style from 'Chinaman' to 'left hand wristy'

This petition had 279 supporters


Since the 1930s, the cricketing world has referred to a left arm spinner as a 'Chinaman'.

It's clearly an outdated term.

I propose a name change to something less offensive: a 'left hand wristy'.

Pete.
