Off Spin - Grip, Techniques Cricket



    The off spin moves the ball from a right handed batsmans off stump towards their leg stump. The spin is generated from the index finger, this causes the ball to alter its direction and bounce through.

    The ball is held by the joints of the index and middle fingers which are spread along the seam. The spin is then generated by turning the wrist in a anti-clokwise direction.

Coaching Points

  • Light pressure should be applied to the ball with the thumb.
  • When the ball is released the back of the hand should face mid-wicket.
  • Try to spin the ball as hard as possible the control of the ball will come with more practice.
  • The action of the wrist is similar to opening a door.
