Hi this is Ash on behalf of Expert Village.
In this clip I’m going to tell you how to bowl an off-spin delivery. An off-spin is
a delivery which is a tool for the slow bowlers. It’s a delivery which, once bowled, comes
on the off, and then turns towards the batsman. So it’s a ball which would turn inside the
batsman. So it landed the offside and come in. Let me show you how it happens. To take
this stance, how to hold the ball here, you can actually hold the ball in various ways.
Various slower bowlers, spinners, have different ways of holding the ball. It could be held
like this, it could be held like this, or it could be held like this. So depending upon
which one is more effective for you, you can hold the ball. Let me show you how this ball
actually lands up. Since this is spin bowling, the run up would not be too long. It’s going
to be a shorter run up. And you bowl the ball which after being bowled, let me show you
how, and so it comes toward the off side. It lets it lands up here, and then after that,
it comes into the batsman. For the left- hander, it’s the other way around. For the left- hander,
this would be the delivery which would be leaving the left-hander like this and going
out. Now again, this is with the assumption that the bowler is a right-hand bowler. This
is how the ball looks like in real time. As you notice, after taking that bounce, the
ball came inside.
