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

Best economy rate is good indicator for t20 and good performance in Ranji means a prospect for longer version of the game
