Wrist Spin Bowling
From the beginnig of cricket, bowling has since being the most skillful
and difficult of cricket skills to acquire. It is a technique by which a person
(bowler) runs up to the wickets and throws the ball to the batsman,
with a full arm, trying to hit the wicket to get the batsman out.
There are many types of bowlers, from fast to slow, spin to swing.
Spinners are slow bowlers who manage to get the ball to change
direction when hitting the ground. Swingers are those bowlers
who manage to get the ball to move away or towards a batsman.
Good bowlers can be terribly confusing because of the
way they have perfected their bowling.
The Leg Spinner
The grip is two fingers up and two down, with the split
between the second and third fingers, which are spread across the seam.
The thumb rests on the ball and does not do anything.
Shane says his grip is a little unusual because his first
two fingers are closer than most leg-spinners.
The delivery - The spin on the ball is roughly 30 degrees
so that the ball both spins sideways and dips with the overspin.
Closest variation is the top-spinner, where the seam points to the
wicketkeeper and the ball over-spins straight down the pitch
