Maybe studying the bowling actions of some of the current spinners will lead
to an understanding of these "mystery" techniques. Video footage of these
cricketers can be obtained commercially. Below I include a response to your
query from my uncle, an ardent cricket fan...

Well, I cannot answer how these bowlers used their fingers and/or wrists.
However, I wish to add the name of Saqlain Mushtaq in this list of bowlers.
bowls perfect leg spinners with classic off-break action. I have never seen
anything like the ball with which he clean bowled Amay Khurasia in one of
matches of the Indo-Pak one-day. - Anand
