I've seen Rayner get the ball to turn in matches on Sky.

I think he might have self deprecatingly referred to himself as a slow bowler, but at this level it's often tiny fractions of spin that gets a batsman out, particularly if you have deliberately not made any attempt to get the previous three or four deliveries to spin. I think it's called subtlety.

What is unusual is you wouldn't normally let the senior player go until you were sure the junior player had overtaken him productivity wise, which is why Rayner is entitled to be a bit miffed.

Sowter is a bit like an enthusiastic young puppy dog, so I expect Law was impressed with the 'energy' he brings, rather than Rayner who comes across as your more laid back philosophical type of cricketer, so I suppose he was an easy target if Law wanted to wake everyone up.
