Ashton Agar would love to tell you he has 30 variations in his bowling arsenal like every other spinner seems to have.
"But there are probably four or five there," the Australian spinner said - and that seems to be all he needs.
Agar has formed a spin bowling tandem alongside leg-spinner Adam Zampa to steel Australia's charge towards top spot in the ICC Twenty20 rankings.
The 26-year-old admits they are something of an anomaly given the fast bowling cartel has so often been the pride of the Australian attack.
But now Agar says he and Zampa are determined to play a key role in Australia's bid to win a maiden men's Twenty20 World Cup on home soil next year.
"It's really exciting. Traditionally in Australian teams, you see a lot of fast bowlers. But to be playing two spinners in Australian conditions is a really exciting thing," Agar said.
"It's a step forward for Australian cricket but it's also a trend that is happening in world cricket and it will be important for the Twenty20 World Cup.

"Everyone is just playing their roles beautifully. We've got [Mitchell Starc] up the front who has raw pace. We've got [Kane Richardson] and [Pat Cummins] who can bowl at any stage during the innings, and Richo is bowling so beautifully at the death.
"Zamps and I, we love playing cricket together. We get along well off the field. We also know exactly how to play our roles out there, he's an attacking leg-spinner and I can be defensive at times.
"We all complement each other."
The rise of spin bowlers in Twenty20 cricket suggests the game has come a fair way since the dawn of the shortest format.
Some feared the emergence of the crash and bash version of the game would spell the end of spin bowlers in the midst of a struggle to compete with increasingly frenetic and carefree batsmen.
But instead they have become increasingly valuable, and one needn't look any further than the combination of Agar and Zampa in Australia's best XI for proof.
Although if you go searching for wickets with every ball, one best be prepared to jump the fence and fetch a Kookaburra or two.
Role players have perhaps never been more prevalent for the Australian attack in the midst of their impressive start to the summer.
It means the hot pursuit of wickets can often take a backseat in favour of dot balls which can prove to be nuggets of gold in a 20-over innings.
"It's a funny one, in Twenty20 you have to read the batters really well. At the start you are trying to get into your over with as little damage as possible.
"You buy yourself a bit of time to see that moment where you can go a bit slower and shorter, and maybe get that wicket when the batsman doesn't reach the ball.
"It's all about reading the game and playing your role for the team at the time.
"There are many different variations within your standard off-spinner, an arm-ball, a square spinning ball, and just changes of pace and your length.
"Owning and controlling your dot ball is extremely important because then you can control the batter."
