Improving spin bowling
Rating: 3
from 4 members ratings

This week's session focuses on your players spin bowling, getting them to turn the ball effectively and improve the overall flight and length of their spin bowling.

All young players should be taught to and encouraged to spin the ball as much as possible. A spinner's ultimate aim is to deceive the batter with spin - putting as much spin on the ball as possible so that when it bounces it deviates, making it difficult for the opposition's batsman to hit.

To give your players an idea of what sort of line they should be bowling we set up mini-gates (using stumps) to the left/ right of the wicket for your players to bowl through - aiming to put enough spin to get the ball to deviate back towards the wicket.

It's also important for your bowlers to not become predictable - it's for this reason in this session we cover not basic bowling form as well as three separate spins - Off Spin, Leg Spin and Loop Spin! Once your players have mastered the spin they can then look to accompany it with flight and variation.
