Hi this is Ash on behalf of Expert Village.
In this clip I’m going to tell you how to bowl an in-swinger delivery. Let’s begin.
An in-swinger delivery is the one which after being bowled comes towards the batsman. So
you bowl this delivery, for example, if I am a right hand bowler, and I bowl this, this
delivery after being bowled slowly gets in towards the batsman. Now how to bowl this
in-swinger, you would actually notice that most of the bowlers keep one side of the ball
properly shined and the other side is usually dull. The reason they do is to get a swing
either in or out when they bowl. Typically for the in-swinger, you have to ensure that
when you’re holding this you use your index finger here and your middle finger like this.
Now this side, and if I’m a right hand bowler, this side which is on the right is the one
that’s shining. So this is how I hold, my thumb comes here, and I use principally these
three fingers, two fingers and a thumb to bowl this, and as I said, the part which is
shining is on the right. So when I come, I bowl this and then this, because of the shine,
the ball is taken towards into the batsman. And this is how you bowl an in-swinger. Let’s
see an example here. You would need a decent run up to bowl this delivery.
