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.

Why didn’t worlds best 2 spinners get any wickets at 2,3, & 4 ODI at Premadasa Stadium 2009?

main gussa men hun.

I know M&M are worlds best & they shall finish the oppostion for the 20-20 today….all the best M&M.
Accha?
Yes. BC – it was a batting pitch for 1st innings & the pitch was not mosit like the 2nd innings for Indian spin bowlers.

What are your thoughts of why M&M did not get any wickets?

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
