Bowling Leg Spin: A Repertoire of balls to bowl
Transcript of Bowling Leg Spin: A Repertoire of balls to bowl
By Ethan Mendiolea
What is Leg Spin?
Leg Spin is one of the hardest skills to master in sport, let alone just the sport of cricket. It requires practice and hard work to perfect the art that players like Clarrie Grimmett, Richie Benaud, Terry Jenner, Bhagwat Chandrasekhar, Anil Kumble and especially Shane Warne have previously done. But how can all of the aforementioned bowlers be so successful with only one ball, a leg break, and all the pace bowlers now operating with not just seam, swing and pure speed, but now reverse swing as well? The answer is; leg spinners (often called wrist spinners) have more than a leg break in their repertoire. This presentation will teach you about the stock leg spinner plus the other balls and variations that will trouble even the good batsmen.
Along the seam of the ball, the top joints of the index and middle finger will lie. The ball will rest between the ring finger and the thumb.
When the ball is released, straighten the fingers and impart spin with the ring finger and the wrist. This will turn the ball in an anti-clockwise direction.
