Does anyone know have Spinner Bowling advice?

I want to learn how to bowl with the “spinner” technique. Does anyone know a good website with lots of help? Or, does anyone just know about it and can tell me anything, like what type of ball would be best? I know the weight should be around 11-12 pounds, but is any plastic ball ok? I’ve been searching google for a while now, but I can barely find anything very useful…

What’s the best type of delivery to be bowled by the bowler if the oppnents need a 4 off the last ball?

If you were the captain of your team, what type of ball would you advice to your bowler.

….and yeah, who would that bowler be (some captains may prefer a spinner thats why)
good idea Monti, but the bowler has to be totally focussed in order to avoid that bouncer being called a “wide”

Chosen Answer:

A bouncer

In that kind of a situation,the batsmen expect the bowler to bowl a yorker or a low full toss so they are prepared to face that kind of a delivery.
If a bouncer is bowled,i think the probability of the batsman scoring a 4 will be low.

I also liked the answer by Gladiator,a slow off or leg cutter outside off stump would also be a good option.You have to bowl something which the batsman is not expecting.

Edit-
A wide ball will not hurt much.You still need 3 to win and the batsman will strill have to look for a boundary.
I can’t think of many batsmen who can execute a hook shot properly and that too under pressure and that too while thinking that the bowler would bowl a slow ball or a yorker.

Who is the best batsman against spinners?

Chosen Answer:

Sachin Tendulkar.
The reason for picking him up is he is the only one who made Shane Warn a highest wicket taker bowler nervous and scared to ball him.
Shane warn himself admit that and belives that is the best.

No more Sachin Vs Warne.?

We’ve seen the maestro playing some wild shots off d world’s best spinner shane warne. Warne also enjoys picking up d wicket of sachin. (Warne in an interview said that he got some nightmare’s that sachin is taking charge of d every ball he bowls) But warne going to retire. So there is no more Sachin Vs Warne. The fans of both sachin and warne will miss really a lot.

Chosen Answer:

yes they always have a great contest

Whats the best way to tackle a spinner….?

……acc. to you?
Give ur views considering footwork & technique.

Chosen Answer:

i was told this a couple of years ago by a team mate who had used this theory the whole time he had been playing hard ball cricket, which he started playing aged 11 and when he told me he was 66, thats 55 years he’d used this method and it worked very well for him and i have played spin so much better since adopting his method, and its universal, you can use it againist any type of spinner

quite simply, always watch the ball out of the hand and pick up the flight of the ball, if the bowler pitches up, then leave your crease and try to get close enough to smoother the spin or even hit it on the full. whenever you come down the wicket, always go down on the line of the ball, never straight down the wicket, that way even if you miss the ball your body will be behind the line of the ball and the ball will hit you, instead of going thru to the keeper who would get you out stumped, dont worry about getting out LBW either, cos if you are out of your crease the umpire is unlikely to give you out

if the bowler pitches short then get on the back foot, get back as far as you can (without stepping on your stumps of course) cos that way if the ball does something unexpected, you have got more time to play it, also that little bit of extra time may help you pick a gap to hit the ball in

in short, if its pitched up, leave you crease and try to get to it on the full or smoother the spin, if its pitched short, then go right back to play the ball

it serves me pretty well, hopefully you’ll have some luck with it as well

Who’s the best spin bowler ever? Muttiah Muralitharan or Shane Warne?

Murali was accused of throwing the ball but because of the fact that he has a double jointed wrist he proved the critics wrong!
Murali has the record of 800 Test wickets whereas Warney has just over 700 Test wickets! Both brilliant bowlers but who would you choose to be the best ever spinner?

Chosen Answer:

Murali by a country mile~

Not only his TEST record ,even in ODIs
Don`t forget Murali has 530 ODI wkts too (Compared to Warne`s 290)

WISDEN too named Murali as the greatest ever..

& WISDEN never said Warne is better than Murali..
True that once they picked Warne over Murali & Sachin but it was in yr 2000 !
Murali & Sachin achieved a lot after that..

Not only WISDEN ,even cricinfo website & past cricketers like Viv Richards,Garfield Sobers,V.Sehwag,Rahul Dravid,Arjuna,Tony & even Aussies like Steve Waugh has said Murali is the best ever

Stats too prove that..
When you compoare the two,

Murali have a more wkts(in less matches !)better bowling avrg,economy rate,more 5 wit hauls,more 10 wkt hauls,better best bowling performance in both forms of cricket.

But some Aussies say Murali has taken his wkts against Zim & Bangla

now that too is a lie
Even if you compare the stats against top 8 teams only,

Still Murali has a better bowling avrg,economy rate,more 5 wit hauls,more 10 wkt hauls,better best bowling performance in both forms of cricket !!!

+Warne played most of his matches against Eng & WI but Murali played most of his matches against IND & Pak who play the spinners better than any other team.

Also Warne had the luxury of having great bowlers like Mcgrath,Gillepse& Lee at the other end.
Normally they get rid of the top order & Warne has to bow to the later middle or low order batsmen.
SO you expect him to have at least a better average if he is that good.BUT Still Murali has the better bowling average !

So there is NO ARGUMENT…Murali is the GREATEST EVER ~

What is the best field set up for an off spinner?

What is the most suitable field set up for an off spinner in a limited over game (20 to 50 over game)

Chosen Answer:

Depends on if the track is a turner and what your usual line of attack is. If you bowl an offstump line with the ball turning in a smidgeon, I would recommend the following with the 9 fielders available to you (10th being the WK, 11th being you):

1) First slip (for the one that goes straight on)
2) Short 3rd man
3) Fine leg
4) Long on
5) Long off
6) Midwicket
7) Point 8) Backward point
9) Short extra cover

Which fast bowler bowls the best slower ball and which spinner bowls the best faster ball ?

Answer 1 – Shoaib
Answer 2 – Anil Kumble

Chosen Answer:

I think i will have to agree with your opinion.

Yes, Shoaib’s slower ball is a surprising delivery and is quite wicket taking.

And, we all know how well Anil bowls that in coming quicker one. So, i wiull have to agree with you.

Cheers!!!

Does this prove that Graeme Swann is the most dangerous spinner in the world today…..?

He is undoubtedly the best spinner currently, I reckon. But is it possible to knock the bottle top by a cricket ball?

I,too, would like to see Bhajji on the top but the fact is He is terrible out of form at the moment. Its been quite sometimes now. If you are the strike bowler of your side, your work is not only to contend the batsman but to take wickets too.
@mrjinx64, it was not thrown by Warnie. Its been computerized.

@Joeblow, Nice examples to prove me wrong.

Chosen Answer:

It doesn’t prove anything other than he got lucky with bowling the ball in the right spot.

I can remember when I was in high school we were at an indoor basketball court and I got a basketball up one end of the court and when no teacher was watching I just kicked it as far as I could up the other end of the court. I kicked it so that it landed in the hoop up the other end on the full without even touching the rim! It would have been about a 40+ metre kick with a basketball and to land it in the hoop without it even touching the rim would be a 1 in a million type shot. That doesn’t mean I am the best kick of a basketball in the world. Also I kicked a football (Australia rules foortball that is) in the basketball court at school and I was deliberately aiming to kick it in the hoop and I landed it 3 times out of about 15 tries. If you know what an Australian rules football looks like, it takes a lot of control with the kick to get it to remain straight and spin the correct way to have a chance of going in the hoop. I am by no means the best kick of a football in fact I would be lucky to kick a goal from 30 metres out, but sometimes you can just fluke it.
